A Roundup Of Splendour 2016 Rumours Ahead Of Next Week’s Lineup Announce

Written by Sam Murphy on April 5, 2016

We’re just over a week out from the Splendour In The Grass 2016 lineup announcement and the rumour mill is churning faster than ever.

The lineup will be delivered by triple j on Wednesday, 13th April during Matt and Alex’s breakfast show, meaning it’s time to have some last minute guesses before your hopes are either fulfilled or squashed.

Splendour has faced more international competition than ever this year with Canada’s WAYHOME festival delivering a stellar lineup and NYC’s new Panorama Festival by the same organisers as Coachella snatching up some big names.

Those festivals wiped-out the newly-reformed LCD Soundsystem who were an early bet for the festival after they appeared on the Coachella bill. WAYHOME and Panorama also eliminated any chance of seeing HAIM, FKA twigs, The Killers, Run The Jewels, Sia, Arcade Fire and more on our shores.

A number of artists have also been announced on the bill for a smaller music festival in Colorado the same weekend called The Divide including Miike Snow, Kid Cudi, Passion Pit and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes.

There’s also another international festival on the same weekend, Fuji Rock in Japan, but the nine hour flight time between there and Australia makes it very possible for artists to play both. Names that could make the trip down-under based on that include Sigur Rós, James Blake and Disclosure.

Of course, then there’s always the long-shot guesses based on nothing else other than they’ve got a gap in their touring schedule. Santigold is touring her new album 99c and is free for the festival while At The Drive In are reformed and playing shows around the globe that don’t conflict with Splendour.

Potential artists include Radiohead, Kanye West, Two Door Cinema Club, The Strokes and Bloc Party who all have touring schedules that say it’s possible.

We’ll have to wait until next Wednesday to confirm any of these but you can join the guessing game with us below.
