ED: March 27, 2024: Organisers have announced that Splendour In The Grass 2024 has been cancelled due to unexpected circumstances. 

The famed Australian music festival Splendour in the Grass, which takes place in North Byron Parklands/ Ngarindjin has released its heavily stacked lineup with a continuing theme of majority Australian artists and a primary focus on Indie music.

Headlining the marquee event for festival goers is Australian popstar, two-time Grammy winner and judge on The Voice, Kylie Minogue, who will come home after shows in London and Las Vegas. 

Joining Minogue in the Splendour line-up will be G-Flip and Hayden James. G-Flip recently had her song “The Worst Person Alive” rank number two in the Triple J Hottest 100 and is in steady demand for festivals around the country.

Electronic pop DJ Hayden James, is sure to lift the crowd with feel good dance tunes and popular remixes, especially from his hit album Between Us. 

Marquee international artists and bands never shy away from a music festival in Australia, with Future, Girl In Red, Baby Gravy and more being featured in this year’s lineup. Future will be touring Australia for the first time in 2024, after his expected tour in 2017 was cancelled due to personal issues. Norwegian Singer, Girl In Red, is returning for another festival, with her softcore slow pop music garnering her a fanbase here.

Hip hop band, Baby Gravy, comprising American artist, Yung Gravy and Canadian Rapper, bbno$ are also returning to our shores, having shared on social media how much they love it Down Under. 

Splendour In The Grass will hosta plethora of indie music artists, as well as alumni from the Triple J Unearthed program.  Standout names in the include Royel Otis, who most recently did a cover of Sophie Ellis Bextor’s dance hit “Murder on the Dancefloor”. 

British indie rock band, The Last Dinner Party, whose debut single, “Nothing Matters” continues to rise in popularity, have also been confirmed in the line-up.  

A key part of Splendour is the camping culture. Since the festival is on a parkland and not close to a major city, there is often an influx of attendees from Sydney or Brisbane laden with camping gear, pitching their tents from Friday through to Sunday.

While this comes with cheaper stays and bonding with other campers, it can have disastrous impacts as well.

In 2022, the North Byron parklands were in deplorable condition due to bad weather; this was made worse with delays of buses to and from the site. These events, combined with the fact that one attendee died from meningococcal had a negative effect on Splendour’s reputation. 

The festival saw a drop in an average of 15,000 tickets last year.  It has improved since then, with founders Paul Piticco and Jess Ducrou stating that they have invested enormous amounts of time  and money over the last six months to upgrade the venue and processes.
