Grapevine Gathering returns to Hunter Valley with Two Door Cinema Club

GRAPEVINE Gathering popped the cork off the line-up for its second edition in the Hunter Valley on Wednesday, and it's a ripper.

Northern Ireland indie-pop heavyweights Two Door Cinema Club will headline the November 30 music festival at Roche Estate alongside Australian electronic act Flight Facilities.

Other acts announced include red-hot electro-indie act Crooked Colours, who play a sold-out show at the Cambridge Hotel on Sunday, indie acts Mallrat, Jack River, producer Touch Sensitive, Newcastle-bred pop-diva Kira Puru, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Lovebirds and Big Words.

It'll be Two Door Cinema Club's first performance in the Hunter, having previously played Splendour In The Grass.

The three-piece first gained attention for their distinct brand of indie-pop with their 2010 debut Tourist History, which spawned the cult singles like Something Good Can Work and What You Know.

On June 21 Two Door Cinema Club will release their fourth album False Alarm, so Grapevine Gathering punters can expect a bunch of new tunes.

Grapevine Gathering debuted at Roche Estate last December and featured UK indie-pop giants The Wombats, Client Liaison and Miami Horror.

Pre-sale for Grapevine Gathering begins next Tuesday at 6pm, followed by general sale on Wednesday June 12 from noon.
