There is no subtle way of saying this: I have never been to Homebake. Ever. It has never really appealed to me. Yes, I love Triple J. Ye,s I love local music. But Homebake was always just a little too grungy. Then I saw this year’s line up. Yes, after cancelling in 2010, Australian music festival Homebake is back in full force for 2011.

If Pnau, Goyte, Kimbra, and The Vines are not enough, add Cut Copy and Lady Hawke and I’m now frothing at the mouth with excitement. Homebake 2011 invites you to kick off Summer in style playing host to the best new local and international talent while also paying homage to some legends, such as Nick Cave, who will be fronting for Grinderman.

If the music isn’t enough of a draw, Homebake also plays host to a film and arts festival. And brand new this year is a comedy stage bought to you by The Sydney Comedy Festival.

Tickets are still available, so hop to it. They sold out in 2009, and with this star-studded line-up, it’s likely to sell out again. And quickly.
