The promoters who brought you Soundwave and Soundwave Revolution are at it again with new alternative festival Harvest.
Taking place in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in mid November 2011, Harvest will see the phenomenal Portishead return to Australia after a 14 year absence. Sharing the stage with them will be The National, The Flaming Lips, Bright Eyes and a plethora of other amazing talent.
Promoters said the following about Harvest:
Harvest follows a simple design:
Take the line-up of your typical European multi day event, cut out the filler and the acts that everyone has seen once too many times and pack all the greatness into one incredible day for discerning music lovers.
Next you limit the capacity and exclude rugrats to ensure comfort while substantially increasing the quality and quantity of amenities, services, food outlets and the variety of food & beverage options provided.
Last but definitely not least, create a mesmerising atmosphere by setting the events in magnificent, natural, green environments; show off all that natural beauty with ambient lighting and visual effects; and place within it art installations, holistic markets, cocktail bars and a plethora of performers — from visual and live arts mavericks to neo-cabaret stars.
