'90s too-cool-for-school revived for Harvest Festival

Dust off the Doc Martens and cancel the Botox appointments – a ticket to the 2012 Harvest Festival is what every 30-year-old music fan needs.

The line up for the indie music festival was unveiled today on Triple J, coincidently during its special '90s Week, and ties in nicely with the nostalgic mood of the recent Australian music scene that has been embracing the era which spawned faded denim, Dylan McKay's angst and the Love-Cobain romance.    

The Dandy Warhols are warming up for Harvest in the spring.

Indie and rock'n'roll veterans Beck, Ben Folds Five, Cake and The Dandy Warhols will reform and rehearse before heading down under to headline the second annual Harvest Festival which will kick off in Melbourne on November 11.

Other popular names on the bill include Mike Patton's Mondo Cane, Grizzly Bear, Sigur Ros and Santigold.

Festival promoter AJ Maddah was scrutinised last year following the first showcase at Werribee Park due to the lack of amenities for the 15,000 concert goers who were also kept waiting in long queues for food and drinks.

Sunday November 11 – Melbourne – Werribee Park
Saturday November 17 – Sydney – Parramatta Park
Sunday November 18 – Riverstage – Brisbane

Online tickets sales open on Thursday, June 28 at 9am.
