Splendour in the Grass Timetable Is Here!

(C) Tom Sue Yek

Hey Splendour nerds, I’ll keep this short, but, your timetables are here! Highlighters at the ready because this year’s festival is sure to keep you on your feet. Running from Friday 21 July to Sunday 23 July at the North Byron Parklands, the three day festival may have a few clashes that are a deal breaker.

Headlined by The xx, Queens of the Stone Age and LCD Soundsystem, Splendour in the Grass 2017 is massive and jam packed. On Friday, you might have to cut Father John Misty’s set a little early to see the entire majestry of The xx, while, earlier in the day, the tough decision of Banks or Real Estate might temporarily seperate a few friend groups.

Saturday starts early with Middle Kids, Confidence Man and Luca Brasi all fighting for the same time while later that evening Two Door Cinema Club, Paul Kelly and Queens of the Stone Age might divide the massive crowd. The festival’s final day sees Kirin J. Callinan up against Bishop Briggs, Schoolboy Q versus Pond, Sigur Ros rivalling Meg Mac and, as the night comes to a close, LCD Soundsystem—with a mammoth almost-2 hour set—taking the numbers away from King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard.

No matter the outcome, you’re assured a damn fine time at this year’s Splendour in the Grass. See below for the day-by-day breakdown of who’s playing and when.
