Are you ready for Splendour in the Grass?
Tremble ye mortals, for the 2017 Splendour line-up has just dropped and it’s truly other worldly! What has become known as the most important music event of the year, Splendour in the Grass has set itself apart from the ordinary. Year after year, the Byron based festival brings fresh and famous talent to our shores for a winter soiree of three seriously cool days of live music.
SITG have caked on a damn good display of dance-punk royalty with the likes of LCD Soundsystem taking the head of the bill alongside Londoners The xx. Fresh of their incredible third record ‘I See You’, the trio will make a hotly awaited return to Australia to demo their new material for salivating crowds. It’s not all dance, with rock ‘n roll real estate covered with the likes of Queens of the Stoneage, Royal Blood and folky-AF Father John Misty.
For those after some local produce, you can figure out who’s making the gravy with absolute legend Paul Kelly, take a lesson in ukulele playing with Vance Joy or dance it out with Big Scary and Client Liaison.
To be honest, this line-up is monstrous and probably the best music bill in the biz. To get tickets to this bullshit good event, get ready with the dollars at 9am, Thursday 6th April.
