Queenscliff Music Festival Announces Second Lineup

Victoria’s Queenscliff Music Festival has already extended an inticing invite to celebrate their sweet sixteen, with a shining festival bill of Australian talent in its first-round announcement, and now they’re sweetening the deal even further with their second round of acts for its 2012 appearance.

The three-day event, running on November 23-25, sees the addition of celebrated singer/songwriter MIA DYSON who’s compelling voice and bluesy picking will brining her stark and soulful album The Wonder to life on stage to delight festival-goers. Joining the 2nd additions to the bill are firm crowd favourites – and self-appointed ‘best band in Australia’ – THE FAUVES. Fresh from his stage role as the legendary Gram Parsons, JORDIE LANE will thrill audiences with his acclaimed take on folk and alt-country; and just in time for their debut EP launch, LOON LAKE – winners of Triple J’s BIGSOUND competition with the three brothers (and a mate) making music that’s fast, honest and without pretension.

Also joining the lineup will be high performance funk & soulsters DEEP STREET SOUL will join indie-infused soul from NGAIIRE and scorchin’ garage rock duo JACKSON FIREBIRD. Along with MONEY FOR ROPE, LLOYD SPIEGEL and the delightfully-named BUTTERFLY BOUCHER (from Missy Higgins’ band and key figure in her latest album) as well as punk rock Eurodiscovites, THE DC3.

That’s not it, there’s also swamp rockers HOWLIN’ STEAM TRAIN, and that slice of badass called KIRA PURU & THE BRUISE alongside HALFWAY TO FORTH (banjo-driven brothers of Diesel). KESHIE’s high-vibing happy music, raucous blues rockers THE JOE KINGSs, TOM RICHARDSON PROJECT and THE BAKERS DIGEST will surely bring down the stadium.

Add to the mix, the following outstanding musical athletes: Juan Alban, Sweethearts, Shaun Kirk, Wishful (Paul Kelly’s daughters), Luke Legs & The Midnight Specials, Lily & King, ukulele lady Al Parkinson, Alister Turrill, Catherine Sanzaro & Izzy Losi (2011 QMF Perpetual Scholarship Winners), Jamie Pye, Inertia Brass Band, Yirrmal and the Yolngu Boys (Gurrumul’s kin), Tides of Welcome and Tané (2011 QMF Busking Competition Winner) and you have an epic local lineup worth crowing about.

They join an already-bursting festival bill that includes: Missy Higgins, The Cat Empire, Gurrumul, You Am I, Something For Kate, Baby Animals, British India, Ian Moss, TZU, Owl Eyes, Diesel, Emma Louise, Shannon Noll, The Beards, Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes, Electric Empire, King Cannons, Pinky Beecroft & The White Russians, Chase The Sun, Ruby Boots, Kingswood, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, plus All The Colours.
