Saturday, January 5, 2013 at Doug Jennings Park, The Spit.
The Chemical Brothers have been announced as the headline act for Summafieldayze 2013.
Also appearing will be prodigiously talented British maestro Mark Ronson in DJ mode, revolutionary Sri Lankan/British singer and rapper M.I.A., party-starting English band Hot Chip, hands-in-the-air Dutch DJ/producer Fedde Le Grand, German house duo Booka Shade live, trance DJ Eddie Halliwell, and SBTRKT, the stage name of the project headed by British DJ/producer Aaron Jerome.
Local acts include reality TV stars the Stafford Brothers and Timmy Trumpet, and fan favourites Bombs Away, from Chevron Island.
The outdoor festival, which attracts up to 35,000 punters, is estimated to be worth more than $20 million to the city.
Event co-promoter Billy Cross, of Cross Promotions, yesterday said almost 60 per cent of ticket-holders last year came from NSW, Victoria and north Queensland, with many arriving early for New Year's Eve and staying until event day.
Mr Cross said Summafieldayze drew its electronic/DJ acts from Melbourne's Summadayze and Sydney's Field Day and augmented them with live acts from the Falls festivals in Victoria and Tasmania.
The 2103 festival will have more than 100 performers on three main stages and three smaller stages.
The other acts in the first line-up announcement are AN21 & Max Vangeli, Carl Craig 69 live, Maya Jane Coles, Disclosure Live, Erol Alkan, Fake Blood, Adrian Lux, Breakbot live, Hudson Mohawke, Araabmuzik, Icona Pop, Scuba, Aeroplane, Jesse Rose, Danny Daze, Krafty Kuts & A-Skillz and AC Slater
