Dust off your Dr. Martens, polish those Ray-Bans and bust out the tune rags, the line-up for 2017 Splendour In The Grass was announced this morning, and boy oh boy, have they delivered.
Returning to Australian shores for the first time since 2010 (and since calling an indefinite hiatus before announcing their triumphant return to music) LCD Soundsystem are at the top of the bill, as well as the xx, Haim, Vance Joy, Tash Sultana and, for all your rockers, Queens Of The Stone Age.
Several acts spoke with Triple J's Ben and Liam this morning, with the girls of Haim revealing new music would be dropped before the festival. Este 'bassface' Haim revealed that the band have been working on new "Joni Mitchell inspired" music over the last few years, but said she wants to leave "a tiny bit of mystery," about when exactly we can expect to hear it. So sneaky!
"The first time that we ever heard our lyrics sung back to us, was at Splendour," she revealed. "As I remember it, we heard the audience singing part of the song and then collectively [we] had to turn our backs because we were getting misty. Australian audiences - we just know they're going to be up for it and we're expecting it. We already know it's going to be the best time and we're going to have so much fun."
To catch the girls - and the rest of the all-star lineup - hit up the ticketing information available on the Splendour website. Good luck!
