The first day of Splendour 2018 (Friday) will be headlined by Lorde, performing the only show of her upcoming trip to Australia. Backed by her latest album Melodrama, she’ll return to the Splendour stage five years after she debuted at the festival to fill in for Frank Ocean.
Friday will also feature sets from the likes of Khalid (also exclusive to Splendour), Miguel, Angus & Julia Stone, ‘Dune Rats & Friends’, Chromeo and DMA’S.
Day two (Saturday) will be headlined by Vampire Weekend, who’ll be playing their first Australian show in four years exclusively at Splendour.
Saturday will also feature performances from acts like Hilltop Hoods, CHVRCHES, Gang of Youths, Franz Ferdinand, Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite, Lil Xan and The Jungle Giants.
The third and final day of Splendour 2018 (Sunday) will be headlined by the ever-so-humble Kendrick Lamar, who’ll close out the festival following sets from The Wombats, Girl Talk (exclusive to Splendour), MGMT, Ben Howard, James Bay, PNAU and more.
Splendour In The Grass will return to North Byron Parklands between Friday, 20th and Sunday, 22nd July, and you can view the full list of day-by-day lineups (and ticket details) below. Exact set times for each act will be released closer to the festival.
