Earlier this year it was Nile Rodgers and Chic bringing the funk to the Supernatural Amphitheatre for an extended set packed full of hits on the final night of Golden Plains. Next year, it’ll be none other than George Clinton.
Along with the 17-piece – yes, you read that correctly, SEVENTEEN PIECE – Parliament Funkadelic, Clinton will be performing a “two hour funk extravaganza” from across his career. The 71-year-old Clinton was one of the chief instigators of the 1970s funk movement, along with Sly Stone and James Brown. He was the mastermind behind Parliament and Funkadelic, and now tours with an amalgamation of those bands. His multi-sensory shows also tend to feature men in diapers, women on roller skates and the very epic 10-minute-plus guitar odyssey ‘Maggot Brain’.
Clinton now joins the recently announced Cat Power, who will perform the sunset slot on the first night. As for “most” of the rest of the line-up, you’ll have to wait until Tuesday. Golden Plains Lucky Seven will take place from March 9-11 in Meredith, Victoria.
