Splendour In The Grass 2012 Line-up Rumours Heat Up – Black Keys, Jack White

Splendour in the Grass 2012 rumours have started to build up this week, with The Black Keys and Jack White tipped to be the headlining acts for this year’s event.

Triple M and Herald Sun reporter Nui Te Koha has pointed out this morning that a “line-up leak put online last night” has revealed that the Black Keys will be the headliners, although all the tips he’s made such as, Franz Ferdinand, Jack White and Bloc Party all appear similar to our leak, which we put up yesterday.

Bands included:

Bloc Party

Jack White

The Black Keys

Franz Ferdinand

Thurston Moore

Hilltop Hoods


Regina Spektor


The Shins

The Temper Trap

The Dandy Warhols

Empire of the Sun

Pajama Club

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

Infected Mushroom

Miike Snow

Anna Calvi

Hot Chip

The Grates

Matt Corby



Knife Party

The Herd

Angus Stone

Bleeding Knees Club

Sharon Van Etten

White Rabbits

Last Dinosaurs

The image is quite well researched, with most bands fitting the time slots and rumours, apart from Hot Chip who are booked for Camp Bestival.

But the best rumours we’ve seen so far are:

Bloc Party, after guitarist Russell Lissack gave a sneaky tweet to the Last Dinosaurs about “crossing paths soon”, and who are very likely to appear at the festival as well.

The Shins, with James Mercer telling The Vine that the band will be coming to Australia, with plans to appear at Splendour In The Grass under negotiation.

Sleigh Bells, who spoke to triple j saying that they plan to visit us twice this year. A Splendour appearance with a proper Australian tour in the summer?

Ting Tings, speaking to Radar Music who will also be here twice, and using the word ‘festivals’ to describe what their tour plans will be.

Lana Del Rey: she recently cancelled her Australia visit with plans to come back A.S.A.P. The tour was promoted by Splendour organisers.
