Australia’s Peats Ridge Sustainable Arts & Music Festival has dropped its first lineup announcement for 2012 today, with headliner John Butler Trio set to bring in the New Year in the surrounds of the stunning Glenworth Valley.
The New South Wales festival will see John Butler Trio – the most requested band in the Festival’s history – joined by the power of soul super group, Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings, who will be bringing their legendary incendiary performance to the Festival this year for a sizzling, sexy and soulful show.
Kiwi groovers The Black Seeds will be there to bring a fusion of dub, funk, afrobeat and soul to party too. Jack Savidge of the UK Friendly Fires, will be performing a Friendly Fires DJ Set for those that want a bit more dance in their new year’s party, while fellow UK act Blood Red Shoes will bring their fantastic live show to Peats Ridge for a first trip to Australian shores since playing some of the biggest European festivals this summer.
The three day music and arts spectacular will play host to a line-up that organisers say is the best yet, and as always is packed with international and Australian acts of all genres.
Now in its 9th year, the 2012 instalment of Peats Ridge promises to be everything brilliant that has been offered in previous years with many more announcements to come.
