As we edge closer to summer the festival season is once again upon us with New Years festival "Pyramid Rock" releaseing their lineup for 2011/12. After being fairly disapponted with the Falls Festival lineup for this year the Pyramid lineup is a breath of fresh air, although I did expect them to have a few more tricks up their sleeve. American glam-rock group Scissor Sisters have been announced as headliners for the festival which doesn't really entice me at all as I'm as far removed as you can get from being a Scissor Sisters fan. However never fear there are other cool artists to whet your apetite including Lyrics Born, Spank Rock, Drapht, The Panics, The Herd, Gotye, The Bamboos and the one and only Grandmaster Flash. There is definitely a strong Aussie contingent and I'm looking forward to seeing Lyrics Born and Spank Rock but I hope they have a few more quality international acts in store when they announce a second lineup sometime in October. That's not to say that I'm totally disappointed as I would say the lineup is still better than this years Fall's contingent. After being a longtime Falls Festival attendee I atteded Pyramid Rock last year for the first time and I can tell you after the disaster of the 2009/10 festival it's actually pretty good... pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good. It's an awesome location, I had a great time and I was also introduced to the man, the myth known as "Patto". The Pyramid Rock festival will take place on Philip Island from Thursday December 29 until Sunday January 1. Check out the full lineup along with ticketing information after the jump or head over to the Pyramid Rock Festival website for further details.
