Following headline sets at Parklife Festival earlier this year, The Presets have announced a national tour in support of latest album Pacifica.
I know it’s been a successful Parklife when I can 1) Name a new artist I’ve never seen before and now love. 2) See an act I formerly liked and now don’t care for. 3) Check a favourite off my must-see list, and 4) Walk past far too many people on my way to the Botanic Gardens who didn’t quite make it past their pre-drinks. I guess that makes 2012 a winner. And while I hope the dubstep isn’t here to stay, I’ll get used to it if I have to. 5 Parklife Festivals later and I’m in no rush to miss out in 2013.
One of the country's most loved and attended music festivals, Parklife, has just revealed its 2012 lineup. While Big Day Out failed to deliver a diverse and exciting lineup (well, to Adelaide anyway), Parklife has something for all party goers, festival mongers and music lovers.
Jimmy and the Mirrors strive to make ‘mature and thoughtful indie-pop with a positive and ultimately Australian attitude’. In the last 2 years, the local Adelaide indie outfit has worked in leaps and bounds to make that simple statement a reality. In short - Jimmy and the Mirrors are aiming big.

Mother Nature turned it on for Parklife 2011 in Adelaide, the last stop on this year’s Parklife Festival. Judging by the weather that came before in Sydney (being dubbed ‘Mudlife’), October 3 was a lucky day indeed. Ever the loud, complicated, hipster sibling to the dancier Future Music and Stereosonic and rockier Big Day Out, Parklife boasted an impressive (albeit peculiar) line-up comprising of some of the best up and coming international and local pop, indie, electronic and dance acts, alongside a slew of established veterans.
The line up for Parklife has been announced and Facebook, Twitter, Forums & pretty much everywhere else online is a buzz. Some are saying this is the best line up yet. What do you think?

Here it is, the official first line-up announcement for Parklife 2010.
