Ladies & gentlemen..
Once again comes that time of the year, where Homebake HQ frantically places the finishing touches to an annual announcement reminding one & all that summer is looming and, that it will be the official start to the great Australian music festival period.
And thus, with all the fuss, excitement and usual glamour, Australia's most famous antipodean all star event can possibly muster, we are both beyond elation and incredibly relieved to finally announce our very special 13th anniversary being..
HOMEBAKE 07 - It's The Ladies Domain!
Over the years, Homebake has played host to a plethora of national and internationally famous local superstars, and has now matured to become one of Australia's most important and respected festival events, and for this very reason, we are always grateful for the devoted support of the public, media & local industry alike.
Each year, HOMEBAKE has focused on particular themes of style - and, as our themes are always based on the continued respect of our most gracious performers, we've realised that it's about time we honour the ladies of our entertainment industry hence our 2007 theme 'It's The Ladies Domain'!
Albeit that it would be impossible for us to focus entirely on the women of rock, Homebake 07 will feature & focus on many female participant acts as well as include the use of multimedia to honour the many ladies of our entertainment industry.
So folks, we have a confession to make...& it's a confession that has even astounded all of us here at Homebake HQ. For the first time ever within all 13 versions of Homebake we can finally announce that our show finale will be performed by a female fronted act.
And, may we add, not just any act ...in fact, statistically, Australia's biggest internationally charting female fronted band ever! So, read on carefully and start preparing plans to join us as we once again pay homage to the success of our local entertainment industry - and in particular the ladies.And with great pleasure and excitement, what better way for us to show our respect than to present..
THE DIVINYLS • MISSY HIGGINS • CUT COPY • GOTYE • SARA BLASKO • JOSH PYKE • MIDNIGHT JUGGERNAUTS • PAUL KELLY • THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS • ANGUS & JULIA STONE • PAUL DEMPSEY • THE BUMBLEBEEZ • PNAU • OPERATOR PLEASE • BEHIND CRIMSON EYES • MUSCLES • ED KEUPPER & THE KOWALSKI COLLECTIVE • MAMMAL • THE SOFT TIGERS • RED EYE SOCIETY (NZ)
