A Genre By Genre Breakdown Of Splendour In The Grass 2019 Sideshows: Hip Hop

Written by Jackson Langford on April 18, 2019

Splendour In The Grass isn’t Australia’s most hyped festival for nothing. It’s an absolute extravaganza that spotlights the biggest stars in music as they gather in North Byron Parklands for a celebration of music from around the corner to across the globe.

2019’s event is no different, with the likes of Childish Gambino, Chance The Rapper and our very own Tame Impala headlining. On top of that, there’s a whole stack of other local and international acts to get pumped about. But, as tickets for the festival have already sold out, there’s plenty of people around the country who’ve missed out. Luckily, plenty of acts on the bill are taking their music to major cities for some very special sideshows, and we’re giving you a complete guide to these must see performances. And to make things that much easier, we’re giving it to you genre-by-genre.

HIP HOP

This year more than ever, hip hop acts find themselves more strongly represented at Splendour In The Grass than ever before. In fact, two of this year’s headliners are hip-hop artists – Chance The Rapper and Childish Gambino. On top of that, there are plenty of fiery rappers and smooth lyricists for fans to sink their teeth into both at the festival and at their sideshows.
