- The winter festival will feature the likes of Tiga and Ellen Allien on an assorted bill.
Travelling Australian winter festival We Love Sounds' initial 2010 line-up has been revealed, with Tiga, Ellen Allien and M.A.N.D.Y. all included in the first announcement.
The festival, which will be celebrating its seventh year of operation, has once again offered up an assorted collection of names and genres. Techno and house will be supplied by Ellen Allien and M.A.N.D.Y., the German owners of the respective BPitch Control and Get Physical labels. Meanwhile, electro-house, which takes up a large portion of the announced acts, will be handled by Italian duo Crookers, sometime collaborators Tiga and Zombie Nation, Felix Da Housecat, Steve Aoki and Laidback Luke, with Markus Schulz the sole trance representative. This year will also see the addition of a new stage to be hosted by Tiga's Turbo Records imprint, with more themed arenas to be announced.
As per usual, We Love Sounds will travel to a number of Australia's capitals, kicking off on June 5th with a satellite show in Canberra, before moving on to Perth, Sydney and Adelaide. Like previous years' events, non-Sydney dates will have a reduced line-up, and the Brisbane and Melbourne legs will go under the "Winter Sound System" banner, with venue details yet to be announced.
