We hope you Splendour goers have recovered sufficiently! A few of you may have spotted certain Powderfinger members floating around the festival site over the weekend, but those of you that were in the Super Top after You Am I's blistering set certainly wouldn't have missed them! The 11 000 people that were there at the time will be hearing themselves on Powderfinger's new album! During the changeover, the lyrics to a new Powderfinger song, "Think It Over", were flashed on to the screens on the side of the main stage. The sing-a-long that resulted was recorded and will be used on the album!
On Friday night, Powderfinger treated Byron Bay locals and Splendour visitors to an ultra rare event - an impromptu busking performance outside the Great Northern Hotel! The 300 or so by standers were the first people in the world to hear the new Powderfinger material! Check out this footage for a very brief snippet.
In other festival news, Powderfinger have been confirmed as the headliners for Homebake at The Domain, Sydney, on Saturday December 5th. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Monday August 17th. Tickets are sure to fly out the door, so get thee to a ticketing agent early and check out www.homebake.com.au.
It's hard to believe, writing in July, that the summer festival season is almost upon us again. But it is...and with that, the new 'Fingers record! Can't wait.
