LilkaFest celebrates its fourth consecutive year and first year of expanding to a 2-day event in 2011. The camping and music festival will be its biggest year to date beginning on Friday the 25th of November and finishing up on Sunday the 27th. It will host interstate acts for the first time in its short history, whilst still supporting the grass roots, South Australian acts in which the festival has been built.
LilkaFest, renowned for its intimate setting and highly energetic crowds will again be held on a private, family farm near Meningie. The LilkaFest line-up for 2011 boasts some of Adelaide and Australia’s most exciting up and coming musical acts, including: Tim and Jean, Leader Cheetah, The Killgirls, The Salvadors, The Levitators, The Thieves, Irie Knights, Ride Into The Sun and Track Team.
Adding to the previously announced line-up is Closure in Moscow, Dangerous!, Lady Strangelove, DJ Brendon, Stephen Hart and Chris Spiers.
New additions to the line up
After being removed from the 2010 Soundwave line-up with controversial claims of unreasonable band requests Closure in Moscow will make it to South Australia for LilkaFest 2011. Getting their start in 2006, Closure in Moscow banded together as high school friends, and in their relatively short time together, have quickly outgrown their youthful origin. The band has released one extended play and one full-length studio album to critical praise – The Penance and the Patience (2008) and First Temple (2009).
With the recent release of the noisy record "Teenage Rampage" Dangerous! return to Australia after a whirl-wind UK tour. Signed to
independent music label Epitaph in 2010 this mental garage rock band brings with it a reputation for out-there raucous onstage entertainment.
Adding an adventurous concoction of psychedelic music which runs the gamut of psych rock to sonic electronica – Lady Strangelove has a musical approach that accompanies an energetic live show. DJ Brendon has been at the forefront of the Australian dance scene for almost two decades.
With two DMC titles, countless experience alongside some of the worlds biggest names in dance, music releases throughout the years and a Ministry Of Sound "Clubbers Guide" CD under his belt, it's easy to see why DJ Brendon has become one of Adelaide's biggest ambassadors.
Stephen Hart burst onto the club scene in late 1997 and has gone from strength to strength to earn a reputation as one of Adelaide's leading house jocks.
Chris Spiers, a name synonymous with mischief, mess and music! The head of the Riot Society phenomenon sweeping Adelaide, club walls, nation wide have wobbled to the Club House Party tracks that Chris selects, only the finest cuts will do.
