What You Need To Know Before The Splendour 2014 Lineup Announcement

UPDATE 28/04/14: Three major new acts added to the Splendour 2014 lineup including Childish Gambino — full details here!

UPDATE 23/04/14: The full Splendour In The Grass 2014 lineup has been announced! Full details here.



The Splendour In The Grass 2014 lineup announcement is imminent and we’ve got a hunch some of you will be spending the matter of hours till its arrival impatiently staring at the ceiling, recounting your SITG 2014 lineup wish list. But just before the big show, there’s a few things you need to know.

First off, legendary Atlanta hip-hop duo Outkast will almost certainly be headlining the opening night of the festival, if their trusty official tour page is anything to go by. Just don’t expect any sideshows from the Southern-fried twosome, their reunion tour is famously a festival-only affair.

Let’s add 21-year-old NSW-based electronic producer Max Armata aka Yahtzel to the list of names we can count in for Byron Bay this July. This electronic up-and-comer’s place on the lineup was leaked via his official artist bio and later confirmed by his management people to Music Feeds.

Earlier this month, Melbourne downtempo star Chet Faker was announced as confirmed for a third consecutive Splendour In The Grass appearance. However, Chet himself later quashed the “leak” whilst speaking to Music Feeds, saying that while “[Splendour] is happening,” he won’t be there.

A few of the names you can cautiously get your hopes up for include singer-songwriter, model, and actress Sky Ferreira, who revealed back in January that she’d “definitely” be Down Under in July “for a festival.” Ferreira later backtracked, confirming a March show, which many speculate was a hype-building tactic by Splendour organisers, similarly undertaken with Foster the People in 2011.

It’s also been speculated that Norwegian folk pop troubadour Mikhael Paskalev‘s short run of March dates may have just been this kind of hype-building exercise. What’s more, when we spoke to Mikhael for Music Feeds Podcast, he speculated he’d be back in the Norwegian summer time.

“We were supposed to play it this year but they couldn’t get us out there in time. It wasn’t going to work, so I think it’s always been the plan to go back next year,” is what Dan Rothman, guitarist of UK indie darlings London Grammar, told The Vine in December. A hardly cryptic Rothman later told Triple J that he’s “worried about getting in trouble with some festival that rhymes with Brass.”

Frontman of UK indietronica outfit Metronomy Joseph Mount not only claimed that his band are “excited to come and visit” in our winter around “June? July?” but was also said to be acting coy when asked explicitly if they’re playng SITG, asking, “When do they announce that festival?”

Moving on, there’s plenty of names that are hotly tipped, but haven’t been as gracious with their clues, so just to be safe, we say don’t let your hopes for Bombay Bicycle Club, Kelis, Max Frost, Foster The People, Skaters, Tor Miller, De Lux, or Chloe Howl run away with you just yet.

As for names to count out, sorry to say that Jack White, Band of Horses, Gogol Bordello, Flume, and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have all been snapped up by US commitments, while Tyler, The Creator, Maximo Park, Blood Red Shoes, and Massive Attack will be playing European festivals. Kaiser Chiefs, Mogwai, Babyshambles, Editors, Wolf Alice, and Goldfrapp will be on Euro tours.

There’s a few more rumours concerning our most beloved three-day musical event flying about our Splendour In The Grass 2014 lineup rumours and info page. Taken all this info in? Good. Music Feeds will have the full Splendour In The Grass 2014 lineup as soon as it’s announced tomorrow!
