LANGHORNE CREEK – Melbourne rockers British India have bolstered the line up for the 2016 Handpicked Festival at Langhorne Creek.
To be held at Lake Breeze Winery on Saturday November 12, Handpicked Festival today (September 23) announced the addition of British India, and Australian electronic act The Potbelleez.
The venue had recently announced headline acts including ARIA winning sister-duo The Veronicas, and rockers Killing Heidi, who will perform one of their first live shows in more than 10 years.
Handpicked Festival and Lake Breeze Wines event manager Kate Cooper said the festival would again be a major coup for the small town and region.
“We are really excited to be able to bring such a star-studded lineup to the Langhorne Creek region again this year,” Ms Cooper said.
“We feel that the addition of British India and The Potbelleez is a great success for the region.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to truly showcase all the greatest aspects of the region to local and national visitors.”
Announced today alongside British India and The Potbelleez is Adelaide’s own rising star, Jesse-Davidson, plus the two winners of the Handpicked social media completion, acoustic songstress Sasha March, and eccentric cross genre trio, Tympano, both winning opening spots at the festival line-up this November.
Also on the lineup is Adelaide singer/songwriter Thom Lion and local support slot competition winners Tympano and Sasha March.
Overnight camping will be a new feature of the festival, with Handpicked Tent City accommodating for hundreds of campers. Also new to the festival will be a Tasting Trail - showcasing Langhorne Creek’s acclaimed range of fresh produce and Lake Breeze wines.
Ms Cooper said Tent City spaces had been snapped up by festival goers and filling quickly.
British India are at the peak of their career with the release of their latest single, I Thought We Knew Each Other, and backed with an arsenal of five full length albums, these Melbourne rockers are again set to take on the world and the biggest festival stages.
Also on a major upward trajectory from the release of their newest stadium anthem, Horney, The ARIA nominated The Potbelleez return to Australia after twelve months globe trotting, writing and recording new material.
Lake Breeze Wines is located 15 minutes south of Strathalbyn, South Australia.
