Splendour Dates And Venue

It has been officially announced that Splendour In The Grass will be held at Woodfordia in Queensland this year, and will take place from Friday the 29th of July to Sunday the 31st.

So what does this mean? Firstly, I’m so glad that the festival is staying in Woodfordia, at least for one more year, given that it was pretty much the perfect location for a music festival. The closer 2011 stays to 2010 Splendour the better as far as I’m concerned. The last I heard Splendour was moving back to Byron this year, so either I missed something or the venue announcement should come as a bit of a surprise.

Secondly, this all but rules out Arcade Fire from the lineup unfortunately, given that they have a concert booked for the 30th of July in Canada with U2 (lamestream, much?). It’s a real bummer, but I have no doubt that Splendour will come through with another amazing batch of acts come a couple of months’ times when the lineup is announced.

I already can’t wait for this.
