ONE WORD - Menomena. Some more words - IT'S REALLY GREAT THE MENOMENA RUMOURS TURNED OUT TO TRUE!
But (somewhat expected considering the festival's fairly consistent history) the line-up hardly starts and ends there. In addition to the Man Phenomena, there's also Deerhunter touring their 2010 masterpiece Halcyon Digest, Holy Fuck bringing their face-melting live show back to our shores and then there's the Sweaty Chaotic Man Juice of Les Savy Fav, who are (still) one of the greatest live bands EVER.
