The Splendour In The Grass 2016 line-up has dropped…

...and it is finger lickin' good!

It’s that time of the year again – the Splendour In The Grass line-up has officially dropped, and it is even tastier than we expected! Which is a huge call considering that each year seems to be better than the last…and that fake line-up poster got our spider senses tingling.


Headlining this year’s festival are New York’s finest The Strokes, who last graced the Splendour stage in 2010 alongside the likes of Florence & The Machine, The Pixies and Wolfmother. The band have just come off the back of an elongated hiatus – one which we weren’t sure that they would come out of – and will play their only Australian show at this year’s event. The Cure will also be taking to the stage, bringing tasty 80s melancholic vibes to the North Byron Parklands.


Another stand out? Well, let’s leave that to The Avalanches who will also be exclusive to the festival. What a time.

But look, we can babble on all we want. We know that the line-up is tasty, you know that the line-up is tasty! So, ladies and gentlemen, here is the official line-up for this year’s Splendour In The Grass.
