JUST when you thought the River Sessions line-up couldn't get any better.

The second release includes some of Australia's biggest acts.

River Sessions will be held on Saturday, June 30, at Ooralea Racetrack.

Tickets are on sale now at riversessions.com.au and Anarchy Clothing for $90 + BF.

The River Sessions line-up in 2012 will be the biggest in the festival's history and will include some of the biggest musical acts in Australia.

A wide range of genres will be represented, from rock, hip hop, dance/electronic, pop, indie and alternative rock.

The festival will feature two main stages and more than 11 hours of diverse entertainment, including the silent disco, which was added and proved to be a huge hit in 2011.

There will also be some new surprises to be announced soon.

The 2012 second-release line-up includes: Australian hip hop giants, multi-platinum and multi Aria award-winners Hilltop Hoods who have just released their 6th studio album Drinking from the Sun.

That debuted at #1 on the ARIA charts for two weeks consecutively as well as achieving gold status on the day of release.

Hilltop Hoods will headline this year's festival as part of their Speaking In Tongues national tour.

This will be the band's first visit to Mackay since 2009.

Australian hip hop superstar 360 will also feature at River Sessions 2012.

It's been a massive year for 360 with three entries in the 2012 Triple j Hottest 100, his album Falling and Flying reaching platinum status in Australia, his single Boys Like You also reaching triple platinum status and winning the 2011 Channel V Australia artist of year.

And with more than 300,000 friends on Facebook and nine million views on YouTube, he has been a busy boy and we are happy to have him smash a set out on the River Sessions stage in 2012.

Perth band San Cisco will also join the line-up. Their single, Awkward, placed at #7 in the hottest 100 this year.

The second line-up will also include songstress Gossling, Brisbane band Art Of Sleeping and locals The Tale Of Temple, My Lionheart, Billy The Kid, DJ Naylo and DJ Toxi.
