UPDATE 13/04/15: The official Splendour In The Grass 2016 lineup is here.
Original Story: The pile of artists effectively ruled out for the 2016 edition of Splendour In The Grass continues to grow, meaning it’s likely you’ll be able to predict this year’s bill by a simple process of elimination.
A new sister festival to Coachella, dubbed Panorama festival, will launch in New York from July 22-24, the same weekend as Splendour. While the headliners of the festival – LCD Soundsystem, Arcade Fire, and Kendrick Lamar – were already unlikely to make it here for Splendour, other acts on the lineup include Sufjan Stevens, Broken Social Scene, FKA twigs, A$AP Rocky, Blood Orange, The National, Kurt Vile, Run the Jewels, Anderson .Paak, Major Lazer, White Lung, AlunaGeorge, and a stack more, which you can see below.
There are a number of international festivals with dates that clash with Splendour’s, including XPoNential Music Festival, Ontario’s WayHome Music & Arts Festival, Detroit’s Mo Pop Festival, Seattle’s Block Party and The Newport Folk Festival. While it’s not completely impossible for some of the acts on these lineups to make it our way for Splendour 2016, the idea of dashing across the world between festivals is pretty unlikely.
On the other hand, the lineup for Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival gives us a better indication of which acts we might actually see appear on the bill for Splendour, the two festivals traditionally shares a number of acts.
