Spring Break Festival 2011

Spring Break started in 2008 as a weekly night in Newcastle, to give the underground bands in our scene a regular place to play and hang out, and a chance for Newcastle kids to see some of the more interesting acts from around the world.

Last year we celebrated our favourite season with an all day festival of 20 of our favourite bands from our scene and a whole days drinking in the sun, for a measly $10. It went so well that we turned it into a series – “Spring Every Season” – and it was followed by the totally massive Summer Vibes, Totally Autumn and Winter Chills Festivals.

The Spring Every Season Cycle is about to complete itself for 2011, and to celebrate, we are returning to our roots!

That’s right, 20 bands, including a selection of the finest from our own scene, and a couple of damn interesting guests: we’re honoured to be joined by Krautrock pioneer DAMO SUZUKI from German 1960s-on psych legends CAN!!!! In Newcastle for the very first time, Damo will be joined on stage by veteran collaborators THE HOLY SOUL and some super special guests from Newcastle too.

And it’s gonna be a measly $10 again! So you can save your dosh for a shit ton of Zamkowes to drink out in the sun. Here’s the lineup.

Spring Break Festival!! Croatian Club Fundraiser

There’s a massive all day music festival coming up at Newcastle’s most accomodating and friendly venue, the Croatian Wickham Sports Club. The club has long been the unofficial home of new weird Newcastle sounds, and has sometimes struggled to make ends meet. In order to make a bit of money back and say thanks to Pavo, 20 of Newcastle’s raddest groups are getting together for the first ever Spring Break!! Festival.

The lineup includes  Bare Grillz, In The Dollhouse, Crab Smasher, Alps, Hopes, CasioGloria, Teen Ax, A Dire Dawn, Stitched Vision, Polyfox And The Union Of The Most Ghosts, Cock Safari, Fk Sampler, Spew Ya Guts Up, Holographic Cocoon, Phobiac, Troopin’ Kerry Alpacas, Cistern Corrupt, Honest Thieves, Wirehead, Mushroom Family, and special guest DJ MTTNS.

Plus market stalls, games of bowls, bocci and giant chess, raffle to win hundreds of dollars worth of CDs, records and tapes, cheapest drinks around, and all day pizza oven firing up slices for $2 and whole pizzas for $5!

Tickets are $10 at the door or $20 for families.
All proceeds to the Croatian Club.

From 2pm Sept 11
Croatian Wickham Sports Club
Albert Street Wickham
