Meredith is a festival where you're guaranteed to have a good time, no matter what. But whatever your reasons for heading to the three-day December festival in central Victoria, you won't be disappointed with the acts Aunty Meredith has just announced for this year's lineup.

Indigenous 'bush band' Mumbali will be making the trip from Numbulwar in regional NT, and local musician Laura Jean (who recently got the seal of approval from Lorde via Twitter before she deleted all her social posts) will be making her first appearance at The Sup. Aussie acts including Sampa The Great, Pond, Mildlife and The Presets will complement international talent, like Zanzibar-born Mim Suleiman, who will bring a collision of afrobeats disco, deep house and soul to Meredith from the UK.

This year's also full of throwbacks. The Pixies' Kim Deal will bring twin sister Kelley and her band The Breeders to play from the band's new album (and hopefully some oldies from Pod, too).Ed Kuepper will resurrect the energy of his 70s Brissie band The Saints with his new group The Aints, and Mental As Anything — which also had its heyday in the 70s — will take to the stage on Saturday afternoon. Aunty has really covered all bases here.

You're wondering how you can get tickets to this aren't you? Meredith tickets are only available by entering the ballot. You can still do so at here up until 10.28pm on Tuesday, August 14. Fingers crossed that we can all hang out in The Sup on December 7, 8 and 9.
