Splendour In The Grass debuts mammoth lineup for 20th anniversary

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.

Even PUP, the emotionally honest punk-rockers from Canada (and Australian Guitar favourites) are coming to make us feel things that we deal with by headbanging and running around in a circle! You may want to purchase health insurance before the festival.

Aussie electro hero Flume and hip-hop heavyweight Tyler The Creator will top off the rest of the bill with Splendour exclusive shows. Denzel Curry, Mura Masa and Duke Dumont are also making the trip down our way, as well as Glass Animals who deserve an extra loud cheer now that drummer Joe Seaward is back on his feet after a serious bicycle accident.

The local contingent is stronger than ever too, with Grinspoon, DMA’S, Baker Boy, Thelma Plum, Methyl Ethel, Stella Donnelly, Bad//Dreems, Lime Cordiale and G-Flip locked in.

If you’re on the fence about buying tickets, stop what you’re doing and buy tickets. Splendour always sells out straight away and look, seriously, do you expect people to sleep on that lineup? Get your head in the game.

General sale kicks off at 9am (AEDT) on Thursday 27th February. Rally your mates, get online early, grab some tickets and come join the party.
