Summer may be winding down in the States, but it will soon arrive Down Under, a fact not lost on Linkin Park, the White Stripes and others lined up for Australia's Livid music festival.

L.P., the Stripes, Jurassic 5 and the Roots are only a few of the 60-plus acts scheduled to participate in the Aussie festival slated to kick off its thee-city, five-stage event at Sydney's Moore Park on October 11.

Other bands jumping on the bandwagon so far include both international and Australian acts such as Goldfinger, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Living End, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Frenzal Rhomb, Turbonegro, Resin Dogs, Rocket Science, Butterfingers, Gelbison, and For Amusement Only. More artists will be announced shortly.

After hitting up Sydney, Livid will head south to rock Melbourne’s Melbourne Park on October 12, followed by a trip back up the coast to Brisbane's RNA Showgrounds on October 18 for the 17th annual show in that city.
