It’s Time To Plan That Splendour Bender: Lineup’s Dropped!
If you haven’t put in your annual leave, or worked out your excuse for your lecturer come the Tuesday that you crawl your way back into work, then you are going to have to pick up your pace, because the lineup for the year’s biggest and best festival is here!
Splendour in the Grass has once again delivered us with some absolute fire, and along with that they’ve delivered some lit AF news! But why are we keeping you from what you came here for any longer?
Bringing your muddy behinds to the main stage as headliners we have The xx, Queens of the Stone Age and LCD Soundsystem. Joining them are British rockers Royal Blood, US sibling trio Haim, Icelandic post-rockers Sigur Ros, US rapper Schoolboy Q, former Hottest 100 winner and becurled hottie Vance Joy, and so, so, so many more!
Further down the mammoth list, you’ll find party playlist faves like Dune Rats, Client Liaison, San Cisco, Thundamentals, Dope Lemon, Julia Jacklin, Ocean Grove, Luke Million and of course, meme machines Bag Raiders!
Now, alongside this gargantuan lineup announcement, you know that there will be another huge stack of artists added in a few months when the Triple J Unearthed bands are dropped.
If you managed to see that “leaked” Splendy lineup poster that inevitably made its way to the internet over the past few days, then you shouldn’t be too surprised with a number of these bands, except maybe the headliners – sorry Gorillaz fans.
Aside from the artistry, the usual Splendy events and locales are returning, with the Splendour Forum if you’re feeling a little philosophunky and The Global Village for some sounds from across this wide #FlatEarth. Little Splendour is back for the gang of youths in your life, and Splendour in the Craft will bring a whole new meaning to sh*ttin’ glitter. And of course, for all you munt-meisters, the TIPI Forest will be weird and wonderful as always.
In other Splendour news, rejoice! This year, the crew at Splendy are doing away with the nightmarish drink token system and replacing it with Visa Paywave, so make sure you get down to your local bank branch to update that fantastic plastic.
Tickets go on sale on Thursday 6th April, so get your affairs in order, you only have 8 days!
Check out the full lineup below, and scope out the video for The xx’s Say Something Loving!
