The full Splendour In The Grass 2014 lineup was unveiled just last week, but already organisers have expanded the already massive three-day music festival bill with a handful of additional artists.
The likes of Outkast, Foster The People, Lily Allen, Interpol, are among the 80+ strong list of artists jetted to Byron Bay this winter for Splendour, and today sees the addition of US rapper Childish Gambino (aka actor/comedian Donald Glover), Disclosure collaborator and UK soul singer Sam Smith, and Aussie hip hop royalty Hilltop Hoods.
Splendour’s co-promoters Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco explain, “we didn’t get these three confirmed in time for the lineup announce last Wednesday – too many cocktails over Easter… Better late than never!”
Childish Gambino’s Splendour slot, playing Friday, marks his first appearance since releasing his new album Because The Internet; Glover was last in the country as part of the Big Day Out 2013 lineup. Sam Smith, best known for providing the vocals to Disclosure’s breakout hit ‘Latch’, makes his Australian debut with Splendour, on Sunday, and is already a buzz-name in his native UK where he claimed a Critic’s Choice gong at the BRIT Awards after being named among BBC’s Sound of 2014 class.
Locked in to perform on Sunday, Hilltop Hoods are Splendour mainstays, with their 2014 addition marking the sixth time the Adelaide trio have played the festival, a decade on from their 2004 debut with the Byron Bay event.
The three new additions brings the Splendour In The Grass 2014 lineup to a grand total of 86 artists (as our exhaustive A-Z Guide detailed), including exclusive Australian performances from Outkast, Two Door Cinema Club, Interpol, Darkside, Chvrches, Danny Brown, Buraka Som Sistema, and Parquet Courts. “We didn’t get these three confirmed in time for the lineup announce last Wednesday – too many cocktails over Easter…”
The enormous list of performers will play across multiple stages over Friday 25th July to Sunday 27th July at the festival’s purpose built site at the North Byron Parklands in Yelgun, located on a huge 660 acres of parkland 25 kilometres north of Byron, with camping available from Wednesday 23rd July on-site.
