Splendour In The Grass 2016‘s official Byron Bay pre-party lineup is here, and it’s safe to say, the festival has fkn outdone itself.
Splendour organisers have just dished up the hot deets for this year’s state-sanctioned warm-up event in Byron, and in the words of the internet’s favourite Ned Stark meme: brace yourselves, because we could be looking at the biggest bill in pre-party history.
Headlining the bash are noneother than Aussie comeback kings and electro lords The Avalanches, who’ll be giving us a sneak peak of their historic SITG set with their first Aussie performance since releasing Wildflower, their first new album in 16 years.
Happy campers heading to this year’s festival will be able to pop the cork early thanks to this epic pre-party on Splendour eve, Thursday July 21st at The Northern.
Tickets obvies will be snapped up fast so best be on your game when the pre-sale kicks off from 9am this Wednesday, 13th July (running til 8am Thursday, 14th July).
Tix then go on sale to the general public from 9am on the Thursday.
And remember, if you can’t make it to the Byron bash, there’s also the other official Splendour pre-party event happening in Bris Vegas.
