After that strange little kerfuffle earlier this year between the original creators of MS Fest and their jumping ship to the Breath Of Life Festival, there were rumblings that the Tasmanian city of Launceston couldn’t handle both festivals.
The easy solution? Move MS Fest to the Tasmanian capital Hobart on a different weekend and offer a different line-up; a bigger population is just one of the positives.
It’ll hit Hobart’s TCA Ground on Saturday March 03 – the weekend before the Breath Of Life Festival hits Launceston.
MS Fest will deliver upon the good people of Hobart a swag of top name talent, who were named as part of the recent line-up announcement.
The Naked & Famous are in, so too Roots Manuva, Amy Meredith, Muscles, Grafton Primary, Bluejuice, Little Red, Salmonella Dub Sound System, Ajax, Bomb The Bass, Grafton Primary, Sparkadia and many more.
And, of course, all proceeds go to support MS, a disease which is particularly prevalent in Tassie.
All the guff is available over at the OFFICIAL WEBSITE.
Tickets for MS Fest 2012 are on sale at 9am today.
