ORIGINAL STORY: Great news for South Australians: Splendour In The Grass‘ old friend and former sidekick festival ‘Spin Off’ will be returning to Adelaide after five years off.
The festival, which has previously hosted the likes of Splendour acts Lana Del Rey, London Grammar and Of Monsters & Men, will go ahead at the Wayville Showgrounds on Friday, 20th July, smack bang during Splendour 2018.
While there’s no information on who is on the lineup just yet, we have been given a clue. Spin Off promoter Craig Lock told triple j it’s “the biggest lineup” the festival has seen, equating to “8+ [Splendour] sideshows all wrapped into one”.
He also said “there’s a lot of Hottest 100 faves in there”. To put that into perspective, the artists responsible for 13 of the top 20 songs from the 2017 Hottest 100 are on the 2018 Splendour In The Grass lineup.
The 2018 Spin Off lineup will be revealed at 8:20am AEST on Monday, 23rd June. Registrations for pre-sale tickets are now open here.
Lock has previously spoken to Music Feeds about the difficulty of organising Spin Off festival, which last took place in 2013 and was shelved in 2014 due to “scheduling conflicts and international demands on artists”.
