Foreshore’s 2011 festival lineup

In 2010 Canberra’s annual summer kick-off party Foreshore hit the supernova switch with a bumper lineup featuring a slew of big-wheeling international dance acts like Tiesto, Major Lazer and Calvin Harris, not to mention a wealth of local heroes that hadn’t been seen for yonks in our nation’s capital like Cut Copy and Miami Horror.

How do you repeat that success? Well if you’re festival organisers Kicks Entertainment you stick to your winning formula and pack out another year’s festivities with a similarly diverse and eclectic collection of musical stars from at home and abroad while still upping the ante with a jaw-dropping headliner in Armin van Buuren – the first time the mighty Dutchman will be playing in Canberra, no less!

The action doesn’t let up there with Foreshore once again bringing the goods for the first big festival of the summer season including a ripping crop of visiting international DJs like Afrojack, Avicii, Datsik and Annie Mac and party-starting live performers Salt N Pepa and LMFAO.

Foreshore’s commitment to diversity continues as you reach the local offerings on the lineup with festival favourites Pnau, Architecture In Helsinki, Gotye and adopted Aussie Ladyhawke meeting the likes of Kid Kenobi, Glovecats and bass-blaster ShockOne.

Your best bet to experience it all is to just take in the full lineup below along with ticket info and then check out our stellar 2010 photos from Foreshore. Bring on summer!
