After months of speculation and rumours swirling the industry, our friends at Soundwave have finally confirmed Australia’s newest member to the festival circuit to be held this November. Whispers had it that Portishead would be on the lineup in what would be their first shows in Australia in over a decade and those whispers have turned out to be correct.

Not content, Harvest Festival will also serve up to us an eclectic mix of respected international acts such as The Flaming Lips, Bright Eyes, and The National. Tickets will set you back $150 and go on sale at 9am on 4th August. See below for full dates and lineup.
