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.
As a former Sydneysider, I’m pretty excited about the lineup of acts that are heading to my hometown for the Sydney Festival 2009, an annual event which runs between January 10-31 and showcases a program of exceptional theatre, dance, music and film. The 2009 Festival is marked by a strong program of theatre, with a number of free events on the program, and a number of artists making their Sydney debuts.
