According to Triple J¡¯s Lindsay McDougall, the exciting line up for this year¡¯s Splendour in the Grass will be announced this week.
¡°The Doctor¡± broke the news a couple of days ago while on the airwaves. It started when the Doc was playing a new Jake Bugg tune, and then went on to mention that the Englishman had featured on the Splendour promo clip!
¡°Now, no words on who¡¯s playing Splendour In The Grass. We¡¯ll find that out next week¡±, he teased listeners. Regardless of what you make of it, it¡¯s a slip-up of some sorts. Even though some information has been out in the public realm already.
Phoenix, have confirmed that they will not be attending this year¡¯s Splendour. Lead singer, Thomas Mars told the Doc that the band wouldn¡¯t be attending the tour because they have their own tour coming in either late 2013 or early 2014 thanks to the release of their forthcoming album.
Rumours have been circulating that big names such as The Cure, Bob Dylan, Alt-J, Frank Ocean and Big Boi could be making their way down under for one of the most anticipating music festivals of the year. However, none of them have yet to confirm.
And those who have confirmed already includes ¨C The National, Wavves, James Blake, Cold War Kids, The Polyphonic Spree and Airbourne, (all four have a new album in 2013).
The festival will run for three days from Friday July 26th to Sunday July 28th at North Byron Parklands, Byron Bay.
