Splendour In The Grass Drops Its 21st Anniversary Lineup

Lizzo, Mumford & Sons and Flume. These are the three headliners for the historic 21st anniversary of Splendour in the Grass, sitting at the top of a stacked lineup full of names both big and up-and-coming to help Australia’s biggest music festival pop the cork on its hard-won milestone. Locked in for its usual spot at North Byron Parklands from Friday, July 23 to Sunday, July 23, the music and arts festival has locked in a number of exclusives that should help lure punters back in after the weather-induced nightmare that was last year.

And last year will most certainly be on the mind for Aussies as they wait in the inevitable online queue once tickets for Splendour in the Grass go on sale at 9 AM (AEST) on Friday, April 14. A few of the BH boys were on the ground for the muddy event last year, joining everyone else in watching the cancellations roll through and the general mayhem that always ensues whenever Byron gets extra wet.

While the Splendour promoters are still unable to control the weather there’s no doubt we’ll see a few protective measures this year beyond just some extra woodchipping. Whether or not this means a different layout for the festival’s main stages such as GW McLennan and the Mix Up Tent remains to be seen, however.

With Splendour’s first lineup announcement now out, punters should start planning who they want to see. To help, we’ve included the day-to-day breakdown of who’s playing Splendour in the Grass, from Flume heading up Day 2 with a special 10th-anniversary performance to Mumford & Sons closing the festival, leading a very mixed bag that ranges from excellent (PNAU, Dune Rats, The Smith Street Band) to bad (100 Gecs, JamesJamesJames).
