Way back in 2001, a little festival called Splendour In The Grass popped up in Byron BY, and gradually began attracting some of the biggest bands from around the world. In a few months’ time, Splendour will celebrate it’s 20th birthday, and the big dogs are bringing some serious acts down for the party.

Indie rock royalty The Strokes and local legends Midnight Oil are heading up a long list of rifflords set to roar through the three-day festival. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are making a welcome return to our shores after seven years away, Violent Soho will be back with a brand new album and a mosh pit or ten, and British hard rockers IDLES are coming all the way across the pond to snap our spines in half.
