Splendour Sideshows Guide

Back by popular demand, here’s my trademark easy-to-read guide to Splendour In The Grass sideshows (there are two lies in that sentence). If you’re sick of lists that are arranged alphabetically or that only include ‘official sideshows’, then this is for you: every sideshow announced so far arranged by date so that clashes are obvious and with ticket prices, venues, and support acts all listed.

Sufjan Is Coming Back

In what is genuinely surprising news, Sydney’s Vivid Festival has announced today the first act of their 2012 lineup, and it is none other than Sufjan Stevens.
