A Genre By Genre Breakdown Of Splendour In The Grass 2019 Sideshows: Soul & RnB

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.


Splendour In The Grass 2019 is really opening its arms to smoothness of R&B and soul music, with the reigning princess of R&B herself – SZA – taking to the Amphitheatre stage for the very first time, along with a trio of SITG sideshows! In addition, there are some real gems of the two genres here to bless you with lush vocals and calming melodies.
