A cooler blend of culture

Splendour in the Grass lineup announced

Splendour @2x

The good folks at Splendour in the Grass have brought us good news this morning: the lineup for 2017 is here! And it’s abso-friggingly huge.

Not that we’re ones to play favourites but we can tell you we’re looking forward to seeing The xx, Queens Of The Stone Age, LCD Soundsystem, Peking Duk, Paul Kelly, Cut Copy, San Cisco, Dan Sultan, Tove Lo, A.B. Original and Bernard Fanning. How eclectic is that already? And that’s just for starters.

The xx: just one of the stacks of acts playing Splendour in the Grass 2017.

The mammoth bill also includes fuzzy-psychedelic rockers, Pond, electro meister Luke Million (he who brought you the ‘Stranger Things’ theme song), Swindail (Triple J Unearthed winners), Late Nite Tuff Guy (DJ extraordinaire), and, oh, we could go on, but scroll down to bottom of this article for the full lineup.

Now, to the expansive space itself. Hosted at North Byron Parklands in Tweed Valley Way (15 minutes north of Byron Bay), the green has been divvied up into various sections. There’s the ‘Tipi Forest’ – where interpretive dance and playful performances go hand-in-hand; the ‘Global Village’ – with plenty of music, theatre and circus performances; ‘Splendour in the Craft’ – where you can flex your artistic skills and create crafty stuff; a Comedy Club; markets; even a ‘Little Splendour’ area for the kids so if you have li’l punks, save on the babysitter and consider bringing them with you.

For munchies, there are three food halls around the fest, and a Truck Stop featuring the tastiest tucker from an army of food trucks.

So pack light, rest up, and get ready for one of the biggest Splendour festivals to date. Speaking of which, Splendour in the Grass is on Friday 21 July, Saturday 22 July and Sunday 23 July. Ticket details as follows.  Antonino Tati
