After months of fervent speculation, meme-worthy fake poster pranks and pondering listicles, the Splendour In The Grass 2019 lineup has finally arrived.
This year, Splendour In The Grass punters will be treated to the likes of Childish Gambino, Chance The Rapper and, Tame Impala rounding off the headlining slots.
RnB superstar SZA will make her second trip to Australia for the festival, whilst psychedelic luminaries POND will also join the stacked lineup.
Childish Gambino – ‘This Is America’
Childish Gambino was last booked to appear in the country for Spilt Milk 2018, canceling just days before the festival was scheduled to commence due to a foot injury.
Tame Impala will treat Australian fans to their first appearances in the country since Laneway Festival 2017. The modern indie rock icons recently premiered two new tracks, ‘Patience’ and ‘Borderline’ ushering in a new era for the band – punters will surely lap up ultra-cool retro-pop stylings of the Kevin Parker brainchild.
Chance The Rapper last satiated the hunger of Aussie hip hop fans in 2016, with a festival run that included appearances at Field Day and Beyond The Valley.
Representing Australian indie will be the raw songwriting gem Ruby Fields, making her debut appearance at the festival, celebrating the release of her upcoming EP Permanent Hermit.
“We cannot wait to play Splendour this year, got some tricks up our sleeve and wanna make it unforgettable,” said Fields.
Ruby Fields – ‘Dinosaurs’
Joining her will be Pist Idiots, who also expressed their excitement at joining the bill, “we are really stoked to play the festival, we’ve been punters and it’s wild to even imagine that we’re gonna be on stage!”
Powerhouse vocalist Odette, soulful queen Thelma Plum and emerging rockers Moaning Lisa will also join the bill, alongside The Beths, Kian, Ziggy Alberts, The Teskey Brothers, Erthlings and more.
Following up what was a mammoth 2018 installment of the legendary festival was never going to be an easy task. However, Australian music Christmas never fails to offer up a bountiful sack of the world’s biggest in hip hop, indie rock, electronic and more delivered by our very own Splendour Santa.
Last year, punters were treated to the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Vampire Weekend, Lorde, MGMT, Franz Ferdinand, CHVRCHES and most importantly, perfectly crisp and sun-filled weather.
