The 2012 Melbourne Festival line-up was announced this week with a bevy of eye-boggling, tongue-wagging artists to leave you slavering.

New York band Antony and the Johnsons teams up with a 44-piece orchestra, while the vivacious La Soiree crew will be wowing the pants off audiences.

The festival opens October 11 with 70 shows over 17 days.
