Looks like they saved the best until last.

From March 7-9, one of the best festival line ups Australia has seen will play to a very lucky crowd who venture 1 ½ hours from Sydney along the Hawkesbury river.

Most people heard what a huge success last year's inaugural event was, with the like of Mad Professor, Fat Freddy's Drop, The Cops and Laurent Garnier all scoring big hits with the extensive audience.

But this year the organisers seem to have snared just about everyone on their eclectic wish list.

Where else are you likely to find Kruder and Dorfmeister performing alongside Ben Lee, or Josh Pyke sharing a gig with Maximo Park, or Ian Brown and Norman Jay sharing a spliff. OK, that one may happen a bit.

It's like musical blancmange, only sweeter.
