“You know how I know you’re gay?… you like Coldplay…”


OK so they’re not that bad – in recent years we’ve had a bit of a falling out but they still go alright… I guess
All in all it’s a decent mix of artists across the musical spectrum – especially keen onĀ  Kanye (Homecoming with Chris Martin is pretty much a given), the Hives (NOBODY SHUTS THE POWER ON THE HIVES!), Mars Volta, Modest Mouse, DJ Shadow, Friendly Fires, Jebediah, Gomez and Grouplove …. But then again it’s not particularly an amazing must-see lineup either. With a few artists listed to drop albums in the coming months hopefully this lineup will spice up more over time…

But that’s just me – what do you think? yay? nay? Coldplay gay? leave your comments below :)

Tickets will cost $390 (inc gst) Event + $120 (inc gst) Camping + booking fees, which gains entry to the festival for 3 days, from Friday 29 July to Sunday 31 July (the actual date of Coldplay’s show is yet to be announced). They go on sale at 9am AEST on Thursday 5 May through Moshtix or by phone on 1300 GET TIX (438 849).

The festival goes down from July 29-31 at Woodfordia, Woodford in southern Queensland.
