Meredith Music Festival 2014 Ballot and Lineup Released

Processed with VSCOcam with 4 preset

It’s that time of year again, the elation of waking up to an email telling you that you’re one of Aunties favourite people and you’ve got yourself a cherished spot in the ballot, not even caring what it costs, and knowing that everyone will be sucking up to you now, or the heartbreak of knowing the competition is now on to find / make a friend with spare tickets to buy.

I don’t envy you poor suckers, I’m in. For future reference, I take my coffee white with no sugar, thank you.

From Aunty:

24-Meredith is still proudly BYO, with no commercial sponsors, the No [email protected] Policy, One Stage Fits All, world’s-best-practice facilities and all the marvelocities of the lush, spacious Funpark that is the Supernatural Amphitheatre. Last year we decided Meredith would be Five Hundred Folks Fewer, to ensure abundant Time & Space, it was niiiice; so that stays as is. There’s only one type of ticket: The Full Meredith Experience is $318.80 + $10 booking + $7 post; all camping and parking included.

This year we have gone further, dreamt harder, listened longer and heard morer in our Eternal Quest for the ultimate 3-day, 2-night, 4-D cascading audio-visual rollercoaster on the One and Only Stage with the Evolving Atmospherics of the Supernatural Amphitheatre and Mother Nature on the lights. The Aim is simply to find The Best; to gather artists that are the best at what they do – not just by reputation, but in actual real life. It’s a never-ending labour of endless love, and it’s borne some very special fruit – A Magic One-off Collection where The Experience = Everything.

24-Meredith is a totally fresh cast – all brand new to the Supernatural Amphitheatre – bar one special case.

I remember in the mid 90’s, Mr Allen teaching us the lyrics to ‘Being Around’ by The Lemonheads in our music class. The booger line was the greatest line in a song I think I’d ever heard up to that point in my life. It still rates quite highly, and I quite look forward to slurring the line come early December.

The full lineup includes:

The War On Drugs
Ty Segall
The Skatalites
Mark Lanegan

James Holden Live
