Also revealed today (July 7) was the site map for this year’s Splendour In The Grass. Its layout is almost identical to that of previous years’ editions, save for the relocated World stage and the new addition of the Parklands stage. Take a look at the map below:
This year’s edition of Splendour In The Grass will be the first to go ahead since 2019, following four separate postponements owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. A majority of the artists announced for the original line-up have remained onboard throughout the delays; this edition was first slated to go down in July 2020, before being pushed back to that October, then to July 2021, and then November 2021.
The final update to the schedule came last August, before the full line-up was announced in November. The line-up was slightly altered this morning, with the announcement that three acts – Surfaces, Mako Road and Adrian Eagle – are all “no longer able to make it to the festival”. Filling in the gaps will be Tasman Kieth and Pond, the former of which will be making his Splendour debut, with the latter playing for their fifth IRL edition.
Outside of the festival itself, there will be over 65 sideshows held throughout July, with the likes of Yungblud, Jack Harlow, Liam Gallagher, Mura Masa, Oliver Tree and Sofi Tukker turning their Splendour trips into full-scale national tours. The bulk of the sideshows were announced back in February, with support acts confirmed in May.
