Has The 2017 Splendour In The Grass Lineup Just Leaked?

UPDATE 29/03/17: The 2017 Splendour In The Grass lineup has finally been unveiled!

ORIGINAL STORY: 2017 has already been a busy year for ‘leaked’ music festival lineups, and now it’s Splendour In The Grass‘ turn.

A poster has appeared online alleging belonging to Splendour 2017, and while it’ll probably make you froth harder than you ever have before, it might be too good to be true.

Splendour In The Grass organisers have declined to comment to Music Feeds regarding the poster’s legitimacy, but check it out for yourself before we get to why it’s probably a fake…

Without further ado, here’s why it’s most likely a sham:

  • Catfish And The Bottlemen’s name is spelt incorrectly (“Catfish And The Bottleman”, lol)
  • The Splendour website listed at the bottom has gone a little French (“Splendour In The Gras”, which translates to ‘Splendour In The Fat’, lol)
  • Cosmos’s Midnight is spelt “Comso’s Midnight”
  • The suburb Wooyung is listed with an extra G
  • The ticket on-sale date is listed as Thursday, 21st April, which is when tickets went on sale last year. The thing is, 21st April falls on a Friday in 2017, not a Thursday

The big-name artists on the poster don’t seem to have other commitments which would stop them from performing at Splendour, but that still doesn’t guarantee they’ll feature on this year’s lineup.

A similar thing also happened last year, when a ‘leaked’ Splendour poster appeared on Reddit, but later turned out to be fake.

The real 2017 Splendour In The Grass lineup is set to arrive this Wednesday, 29th March, so stay tuned to Music Feeds for all the juicy details.

A number of acts have already been pretty much ruled out of this year’s roster, but others are still in the running.

This year’s ‘leaked’ Splendour poster comes after multiple alleged Stereosonic 2017 posters ‘leaked’ earlier this month.
