Gorgeous Festival SA 2011 @ McLaren Vale Visitor Information Center & Grounds

Description:

With amazing live reviews from their recent show in Melbourne, Icehouse will definitely be a massive draw card when they headline South Australia’s new Gorgeous Festival this November 26th. The very first annual Gorgeous Festival is not just a music festival showcasing the best of Australian music but a chance to experience all that the McLaren Vale region has to offer. Gorgeous Festival will stand out from the pack and focus on the entire festival experience with the best music, food and wine available in the most idyllic surroundings on the Fleuieu Peninsula in South Australia.

"Icehouse weren’t good on Saturday night, they were great. What an honour it was to see one of Australia’s cutting edge acts of the 80s make such a dynamic return. As for the show itself, it was non-stop hits. How many acts today can play for one hour where you know every song?"
Paul Cashmere - Undercover Music 11th July

"The set was very tight. For those of us with a propensity to lose focus, there wasn’t an opportunity for boredom as the beats held a life of their own and nostalgia for the good old days brought back memories of sunny afternoons and times when we were free of responsibilities"
Sharon Brookes - The Au Review

Boasting an eclectic line up, Gorgeous Festival will feature a diverse range of acts, including two stages (Petit Rosso & Petit Bianco) for emerging original musicians with 6 of the 8 slots reserved for South Australian musicians making sure the festival has a local feel.

Joining headlining act ICEHOUSE with lead vocalist and founder Iva Davies, will be one of Australia’s premier singer/songwriters Josh Pyke, upcoming acts from QLD emma louise and Busby Marou, Snowy Belfast from Victoria and Junior from SA.

"Icehouse hasn't played in South Australia for almost 20 years. When we were asked to play in the beautiful McLaren Vale, early in summer, I jumped at the chance! Then to be told that we'd be working with the likes of Josh Pyke (I'm a fan!) and great new acts like emma louise and Busby Marou makes it even more of an event for us to get fired up by. I'm sure it will be a wonderful day and night.” Iva Davies
