Melbourne natives are no doubt already aware of the batshit crazy idea that is Let Them Eat Cake; a new years day festival that, by any comprehension of the average level of alcohol consumption that occurs on NYE, should not be economically viable. Thankfully, people responded to the concept with a slurred yet unanimous “YES PLEASE!” and it has been going strong since day one of 2013.
There are few things that would motivate me to crawl out of bed, get into festival garb and catch a train out to Werribee immediately following excessive partying, but with a lineup featuring li’l Melbourne legend Andras Fox, Cashmere Cat, Worlds End Press, DJ Sneak, Todd Terje and Hudson Mohawke, it’s hard to think of a legitimate reason not to make the groggy morning voyage. And hey, the fest goes from 11.00am – 10.30pm so you could even go ahead and sleep in if you felt so compelled.
2nd release tickets have gone out for $160 a pop and you can purchase them here. Get around it!
