    Splendour In The Grass Review: Azealia Banks

    Sludging through the heavy mud to the Mix Up Tent for the dirty stylings of American rapper Azealia Banks, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. With the cunt-laden 212 dominating the airways, Miss Banks was one of the more hyped acts to watch out for. Personally I’ve always found her beats more enthralling than

    The Smashing Pumpkins Bring Splendour To A Dazzling End

    With the sun setting over the final day of SITG, I was left feeling a little conflicted. On one end of the spectrum, my post-splendour depression was settling in early, knowing that in a few hours it would all be over. On the other end, I had scored an amazing seat side of stage for

    Splendour In The Grass Review: Fun.

    Given the current support for Fun. through Aussie radio and other media, their set at Splendour in the Grass was one I was super interested in checking out, and let’s face it, that We Are Young song is really catchy. But unfortunately, 2 minutes or so prior to their set, it started to look as

    Azealia Banks “Super Sorry” For The Short Set At Splendour

    Last night, on the final day of Splendour in the Grass 2012, punters were massively let down by technical problems, which forced one of the most hyped artists on the bill to end her set after only 25 minutes. Azealia Banks was set to make her Australian debut, currently touring in support of her EP

    Splendour In The Grass Review: Django Django

    Django Django are undoubtedly one of the more highly anticipated exports for Splendour this year, and after seeing them live, I can confirm the hype is well deserved. Awkwardly shuffling on stage in uniform tie-dyed T-shirts and denim cut-offs, the band gradually built into their opening number with booming percussions, psychedelic synths and lush harmonies

    Splendour In The Grass 2012 Review: Electric Guest

    When I first stumbled across Electric Guest earlier this year, it was love at first listen. Their contagiously poppy tunes have had me grooving in my bedroom for the last five months, and to finally break those moves out in the open takes a place as one of my Splendour highlights. Infiltrating the mix-up tent

    Bloc Party Make A Triumphant Return To Splendour 2012

    The second day of Splendour has drawn to an end and with sunshine drenching the masses, the ankle deep mud from the day before was easily forgiven. Putting my gumboots through their paces, I can say with confidence that I could probably win gold at the Olympics for mud dancing (if only it was a

    Reformed At The Drive-In Tear Up Splendour In The Grass

    The last time At the Drive In performed in Australia, they cast a black shadow over their name (BDO incident, blah blah), but this time, thunderous drums, shakes and rattles introduced the band to the stage and mirrored the high hopes in anticipation of their performance.

    Jack White Sets The Bar For Splendour 2012

    The first day of Splendour is finally done and dusted (or should I say mudded) and oh what a day it was – rain, hail, shine and a fuck load of rock ‘n’ roll! I’ve just witnessed living legend Jack White at the Supertop and no words in my vocabulary seem proficient enough to describe
