ORIGINAL STORY: The highly anticipated 2017 Splendour In The Grass lineup has finally arrived, and it’s a doozy.
Headlined by rockers Queens Of The Stone Age, reformed indie heroes LCD Soundsystem and UK trio The xx, this year’s lineup is also packing a bunch of homegrown Aussie talent, including Vance Joy, Peking Duk and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.
Elsewhere in the internationals, the likes of Royal Blood, Bonobo, HAIM and Two Door Cinema Club have also made the cut. View the huge roster in full below, and see who’s playing each day of the festival right here.
This year’s Splendour lineup comes after a ‘leaked’ lineup poster appeared online earlier this week. Of course, the poster has now been confirmed as fake, but a number of the acts it predicted are actually included on the real lineup.

Splendour In The Grass 2017 is set to take place in North Byron Parklands between Friday, 21st and Sunday, 23rd July. The festival has also announced that it’s scrapping those annoying drink tokens this year, and replacing it with something better,
