If last week's news of the Icelandic Airwaves festival didn't whet your whistle, perhaps going Down Under sounds a little more tasty to you. This year is the 16th occurrence of the Livid festival and they're rolling out the red carpet for some top shelf talent. Expected to appear this year are Oasis, And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, Mogwai, Unwritten Law, and Sum 41, as well as local heroes Powderfinger, amongst others. Many acts are still to be announced, but it's lining up quite nicely already. This year's event will travel about the country, hitting Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne in the middle of October. That's when it will just start getting warm down in the Southern Hemisphere, so if you're aching for some rock & roll in the sun, you know where to head.
Livid festival tour dates:
10.12.02 - Brisbane (R.N.A. Showgrounds)
10.19.02 - Melbourne (Melbourne Park)
10.20.02 - Sydney (Moore Park)
