  Here it is, the official first line-up announcement for Parklife 2010. We’ve mentioned it before, but it’s their tenth birthday this year, and it looks like the celebrations are set to go off with a bang. As promised, there are quite a few surprises on the roster of artists announced so far, with organisers paying closer attention to the more indie/alternative-inspired musical tastes of their punters, as well as packing in a whole bunch of more traditionally Parklife-y electro and hip hop acts.

There’s a decent selection of local electro acts gracing the Parklife stage, with Cut Copy, Midnight Juggernauts, and the Bag Raiders all jumping aboard, but what’s really exciting is the international acts on the line-up.

Enigmatic indie-folk band of the moment Darwin Deez are heading down under for the first time, as are “the Chemical Brothers of dubstep” the Glitch Mob and nu-disco darlings Holy Ghost!

Groove Armada return to Australian shores less than a year after their performances on the Big Day Out tour, this time with a new, and darker album Black Light under their wings, and experimental New Jersey cassette maestro Memory Tapes is packing up the gear to bring his unique brand of electronica along for the ride.

Missy Elliot has a new album slated for release at about the same time she heads over to Australia for Parklife, and promises to bring with her a complete band, back-up dancers and a whole bunch of new material.

One of the greatest DJs of all time, Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys will be spinning wax across the country like nobody’s business, and New Young Pony Club promise to start riots everywhere they go (figuratively speaking, of course).

Add to that the Dandy Warhols, The Wombats and a whole swag of other international and local artists, and this year’s Parklife is shaping up to be one of the best yet.
