The Sunshine Coast’s Iconic Big Pineapple is set to play host to one almighty music festival on the 20th of April 2013, packed full of some Australia’s and New Zealand's hottest acts. Its idyllic location and much loved history has set the scene for something very special as festival goers from around Australia get set to converge on this beautiful part of the world.
Festival co-Director, Mark Pico said, “We are thrilled to welcome Birds of Tokyo as the headliner for TBPMF 2013 who are currently putting the finishing touches on their highly anticipated fourth studio album, which will be released just in time for TBPMF”. Following two acclaimed albums, the indie band’s self-titled third studio release spent over eight months in the Australian Top 20 and was certified double platinum. It also picked up an ARIA Award for Best Rock Album in 2010.
Early in 2011 the band’s anthemic breakthrough hit ‘Plans ‘ranked #4 in Triple J’s Hottest 100 while the follow-up single, ‘Wild At Heart ‘reached #1 on the country’s National Airplay Chart and won the band an APRA Award. Birds Of Tokyo also received the publicly voted Rolling Stone Readers Choice Award and ARIA Award for Most Popular Australian Artist. The band have been on a journey of exploration and reinvention, and with the first tastes on offer (This Fire EP) already racing up the charts and we can’t wait to welcome Birds of Tokyo to TBPMF.
After seeing Regurgitator pack out the 1200 capacity Brisbane Venue HIFI two nights in a row recently and completely blow the capacity crowd away with an awe-inspiring 2 hour performance TBPMF festival co director Mark Pico believes the Gurge are still one of the hottest live acts in the country. With a career that spans seven albums, a handful of EPs and all kinds of crazy shit explored along their path, a path completely littered with great tunes and good times... not to mention the 6 Arias firmly hidden under their space suits.
Also joining the festival are New Zealand power house Black Seeds. Regarded as one of the best reggae acts on the planet", their legendary 8-piece live show brings raw energy and good vibes wherever it goes. They have countless sell-out New Zealand and Australasian tours behind them, and regularly perform at many of Europe and North America’s biggest festivals.
