PYRAMID is back in 2010 & bigger than ever!!!
||The colossal PYRAMID ROCK FESTIVAL is returning to Phillip Island for its seventh year in succession! Running from Wednesday 29 December 2010 until Saturday 1 January 2011, we’re ready to announce that this years Pyramid Rock Festival is going to be bigger and better than ever!
After last years’ apocalyptic electrical storm there was a lot of speculation that PYRAMID ROCK FESTIVAL wouldn’t return to ring in the 2011 New Year. However, after the electrifying, but untimely display by Mother Nature described as a “once in a hundred year storm”, festival organisers have bunkered down to ensure that Pyramid 2010 has the capacity to deal with any out of the ordinary event.
Booking acts for Pyramid began early this year with artists from all over the globe showing their support for the festival, ensuring that this year Pyramid will undoubtedly be hosting its best line up to date with the first round of acts revealed on August 26.

Fashion label Ben Sherman have always had a special relationship with up and coming bands. They have been known to invest heavily in new musicians, and have developed strong relationships with the likes of New Order and The Clash.
The idea of ‘Big British Sound’ was launched in Britain a while back, but this is only the second year that it has taken place in Australia. Essentially, Ben Sherman organises a lineup of impressive Australian acts, they all play a gig together, and each act covers a British song that has influenced them.
Realistically however, it’s just a chance to see some great Aussie acts perform together at the one show.
Melbourne was the first stop for Big British Sound 2010, and The Corner Hotel was the chosen venue. Instead of alternating bands between the venue’s two stages, the organisers opted to have the smaller stage allocated for a DJ that would play between acts on the main stage. Ultimately this decision worked well, providing a bit more of a party atmosphere or- dare I say it- an underground British club feel.
