The second announcement for Harvest Festival was made late this afternoon, adding seven new additions to the lineup and a second Melbourne show.
While there’s not much here for punk, metal and hardcore fans – which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise – if you don’t mind the alternative spectrum you might be pleased with these additions:
Dexy’s Mightnight Runners
River City Extension
They join those already announced:
Mike Patton's Mondo Cane
Ben Folds Five
The Dandy Warhols
The Black Angels
The War on Drugs
Dark, Dark, Dark
Interestingly, triple j are reporting that The Tallest Man On Earth are also part of the second lineup annoucement, despite the band being noticeably absent on the Harvest website.
** UPDATE ** triple j have since edited the above story and removed TTMOE. Maybe they'll be on a third annoucement?
With the first Melbourne show sold out, a second date for the city has also been added for Saturday, October 10. Tickets for the second Melbourne show will go on sale at 9 am this Wednesday 22nd August.
