HOMEBAKE Music, Film, Comedy & Arts Festival 2012
The Global edition!
With Sydney city's historic Domain once again coming alive with the sound of music, film, laughs and more, HOMEBAKE returns in 2012 with an "atomic" theme, playing host to a virtual swag of national and internationally famous local superstars, once again presenting an eclectic and talented selection of the finest artists borne out of the Southern Hemisphere.
For the first time ever in Sydney’s Domain, the world’s most successful female fronted pop group with over 40 million album sales and more international hits than most, (including the aforementioned Atomic, Rapture, The Tide is High, Call Me, Heart Of Glass, Hanging on the Telephone, Dreaming…and the list goes on and on) HOMEBAKE is granting honorary visa’s to the iconic BLONDIE, fronted by the one and only, enigmatic and charismatic, Deborah Harry.
Forming initially as a new wave/post punk band in New York City, Blondie went on to become one of the world’s most famous international bands scoring charting hits through to this day. With a history spanning post punk, new wave, pop, disco, rock and even being one of the first bands to incorporate rap, BLONDIE continue to be one of the most celebrated and remixed acts in the world (even favoured by the most famous of DJ’s). We here at HOMEBAKE HQ are truly honoured to welcome BLONDIE to our stage for what should be one of the biggest sing-a-longs ever to be witnessed in the Domain on December 8th.
The surprises don’t stop there …. Comedian, actor, singer, pianist, writer and composer (breathe) - TIM MINCHIN joins HOMEBAKE this year. Tim has been performing his hugely popular unique brand of musical comedy since starting out in South Melbourne’s Butterfly Club in 2005 and has amassed a legion of fans worldwide with a staggering list of sold out performances across the UK (O2 Arena, Royal Albert Hall etc), North America and of course Australia including multiple sell out gigs at The Sydney Opera House, Brisbane Powerhouse and Perth’s Majesty Theatre.
Others joining the lineup including, Hip Hop artists TIM ROGERS HILLTOP HOODS, KIMBRA, ANGUS STONE, JULIA STONE, BIRDS OF TOKYO, SAM SPARRO, SOMETHING FOR KATE, SONICANIMATION, SHAFESHIFTER and DANIEL MERRIWEATHER to name a few ...
Of course you knew it ... what would HOMEBAKE be without surprise legends. According to Bob Geldof "Rock music in the seventies was changed by three bands — The Sex Pistols, The Ramones and THE SAINTS". HOMEBAKE is honoured to be welcoming THE SAINTS to this year's lineup.
And the entertainment buck doesn’t stop here! Alongside the music is our hugely popular HOMEBAKE Cinema Pavilion (featuring award winning and nominated short films by upcoming Australian/NZ producers and directors expertly programmed by producer/actor extraordinaire, KIERAN DARCY-SMITH of Two Hands, The Cave, September, The Square and Animal Kingdom fame – as well as director and co-writer of the recently released Australian film, Wish You Were Here, starring Joel Edgerton, Teresa Palmer and Felicity Price. This year will also see a few special musical performances in amongst the films to be announced.
And what would a doomsday theme be without the laughs! With its inaugural appearance in 2011 the hugely successful HOMEBAKE Comedy Stage (presented by the ever popular Sydney Comedy Festival), returns in 2012 and will feature a stack of Australia’s most beloved comedians as well as the very best emerging artists in a rollicking showcase of world-class comedy. Full details to be revealed shortly.
Each and every year HOMEBAKE embraces a number of charities and causes and despite our having a bit of fun with the theme this year, we welcome the extraordinary incentive and initiative known as - You Can! Founded via the Sony Foundation Australia, together with CanTeen, You Can is working to improve survival outcomes for young Australians with cancer through their ‘You Can’ campaign. You Can aims to raise $15 million, through mobile phone recycling, to build youth cancer centres of excellence in Australia. These centres will address the need for specialised care for Australia’s ‘forgotten generation’, 15 – 30 year olds cancer patients. Further information can be found here - http://youcan.org.au/. Stay tuned for further You Can details at HOMEBAKE 2012 coming soon.
Once again, it's a massive start to a global edition year and ‘atomic’ inspired line-up – the first HUGE names announced with more to come - and totalling over fifty combined artists, performers and comedy acts. HOMEBAKE Music, Film, Comedy & Arts Festival 2012 – ‘The Global Edition’ is destined to be one of the most memorable, entertaining and above all, fun festival events kicking off the summer period and will also offer a variety of extra attractions and activities including multimedia, the famous international food fare, a plethora of market and information stalls, roving performers, surprises and much, much more.
