Earlier this week, if was revealed that, for the second year in a row, Adelaide would be hosting the Splendour In The Grass-curated Spin Off festival. With a lineup pieced together with the favourite acts set to perform at its Byron Bay sister event, organisers have now revealed the artist selected to headline.
Titans of the folk scene Of Monsters And Men will not only be performing at SITG, and again at their headlining sideshows, but they will also be capping off the bill for Spin Off. The Icelandic band have clearly found considerable traction on the Aussie live touring circuit, making a serious habit of performing to massive crowds here.
Organisers are still applying the final touches to the full lineup of the event, but the whole kit and caboodle is expected to drop Monday, 6th May. This year, the show will go down at Thebarton Theatre, as opposed to last year’s Jubilee Pavilion at Wayville Showground, but the message is that just because the venue has been downsized, doesn’t mean the lineup will be. With Of Monsters And Men headlining, that is now immediately apparent.
Hang tight for more information.
