Playground Weekender 2012 2nd Announcement
Playground Weekender have released the second round of line-up announcements for their 2012 festival, taking place at the Del Rio Riverside Resort, a pleasant 2 hour drive from the Sydney CBD. Theres plenty of tasty musical treats for your ears to consume including Purple Sneakers favourites Cameras (Sydney) and The Smith Street Band (Melbourne). The event will run from March 2nd to March 4th.
Conspicuously absent from the bill are acts Modeselektor and Fat Freddy’s Drop after being mentioned by organisers in the first round of announcements.
Fat Freddy’s Drop‘s management issued this statement explaining their decision to pull out.
“The band was very much looking forward to playing at Playground Weekender and MS Fest, however, urgent changes in the band’s personal schedule has resulted in key members now not being available for these dates. Fat Freddy’s Drop and Niche Productions wish to apologise to both fans and organisers of the events for any inconvenience.”
Playground Weekend promotors had this to say about Modeselektor‘s cancellation.
“We apologise profusely for any upset caused by the two acts no longer performing at the festival, however with a line-up bursting with international and local talent we are confident the sixth edition of Playground Weekender is going to be better than ever.”
