St Kilda Festival 2011 First Lineup

ok. So for anyone who lives down in Melbourne, you’ll know that the St Kilda Festival is always a bit of fun. Good food, some pretty awesome live music, and best of all, the whole thing is free.

The festival runs between Feb 5 and Feb 13 and is held right throughout St Kilda and Festival Sunday is on Sunday the 13th Feb. Festival Sunday sees about 60 bands playing across a few different stages with the main stage on the beach. Last year I saw Jonathan Boulet play this small little stage, and the year before I witnessed Cut Copy doing a pretty awesome DJ set and Aussie rock legends The Angels doing a set. So yeah, they always manage to attract some fairly decent acts. They also announce the shortlist for the Australian Music Prize – you can check out all of the entrants for that here.

Anyway, so on Friday they announced four of the acts playing on Festival Sunday. They always have some pretty great local acts. So anyway, without further ado, the first four acts announced are:

Tim Finn

Kimbra

Paris Wells

Hungry Kids of Hungary

I’m especially looking forward to Kimbra and Hungry Kids of Hungary (and we got two of their tracks below). They’re going to announce the rest of the lineup in January, so stay tuned.

Kimbra – Settle Down

Hungry Kids of Hungary – Scattered Diamonds

 

UPDATE!

The full lineup has been announced, and we’ve got it on maamf. You can see it all, including playing times right here.
