Nevereverland Line UpAnnounced

Record label Modular will return to the festival market in December to take their NeverEverLand party across the country in celebration of their momentous tenth anniversary. Many have quietly speculated on how they’d top the splendour of Daft Punk’s stadium tour last year. In their usual style, they’ve answered the question with their tongue firmly planted in cheek.

“So how do you even begin to attempt to follow up and surpass such an event?” the NeverEverLand press release reads. “Well, you don’t. But in 1998 Modular Recordings was born, a label that in the time since has gone on to become arguably the most influential Australian independent record label of the last 5000 years, one described by the NME as the “coolest label on the planet”. To celebrate ten years of stayin’ alive, this year’s NeverEverLand festival is the official birthday party, with a swathe of the labels biggest and best acts of the last decade on show.”

With the tour marking such a significant milestone in the label’s existence it should come as no surprise that it features all of their biggest, best and brightest stars. Standing atop the tree you’ll find The Presets, fresh from the ARIAs and their sexy gig at San Francisco’s Folsom Street Fair.

Other stand outs in the line up include Melbourne’s doyens of indie dance, Cut Copy, disco revivalists Hercules & Love Affair, as well as Ladyhawke and the Bang Gang DJs.

Here’s the full line up of artists:

The Presets
Hercules & Love Affair
Cut Copy
Whitest Boy Alive
The Bumblebeez
Van She
Tame Impala
The Bang Gang Deejays
The Lost Valentinos
Mission Control
Temper Trap
Andee Van Damage

Sun Dec 14 – Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne
Sat Dec 20 – Riverstage, Brisbane

Daft Punk will be hard to beat from last year, but the bulkier lineup and the fact it's at Hordern will be enough to get me there!!
