Splendour In The Grass 2012 Lineup

Splendour In The Grass is moving back to Byron Bay following a temporary stay at Woodfordia, and there can be no doubt that with the move to a smaller venue there has come a slightly ‘smaller’ lineup, meaning in this case a more pronounced focus on Australia acts and no mammoth names like Coldplay and Kanye (although personally I think the latter is a good thing). Thankfully however there is still a ton of quality to be found here, most notably in headline acts that don’t tour Australia every other year, as well as a pretty impeccable selection of the ‘it’ bands in Australia right now. There’s going to be a lot of debate about this lineup I am sure. Here it is.

  1. Thanks for posting the lineup. I’m keen to see At The Drive-In live – at a sideshow hopefully. I always find the expense too much for me to head up there so I’ll keep an eye on the sideshows.
