Never ever never?

Last year we got down and dirty (no, literally, it was muddy) to Daft Punk's technicolour dream show, selling all but our souls for tickets to what was undoubtedly the most anticipated festival in Sydney's overcrowded social calendar.

In 2009, the Nevereverland festival will swap helmets for Hercules And Love Affair. Considering I'm not all that into Daft Punk (I know, I know, treason blah blah) it seems like a far trade to me.

Joining them to celebrate Modular's 10th birthday will be The Presets, Klaxons, Cut Copy, Whitest Boy Alive, Ladyhawke, The Bumblebeez, Muscles, Van She, Tame Impala, the Bang Gang DJs, Ajax, The Lost Valentinos, Mission Control, Temper Trap, Canyons, Pepperoni, Andee Van Damage and Bag Raiders.

Considering that covers pretty much the entire Modular stable, I would like to know what happened to New Young Pony Club? Petition, anyone?

Tix go on sale Fri 7 Nov, with the tour kicking off in Sydney on Sat 13 Dec before heading south to Melbourne's Myer Music Bowl on Sun 14 Dec, then Sat 20 Dec in Brissie and Sun 21 Dec in Perth.
