Throw those GoPros, bubble bottles and novelty gumboots in your rucksack, Splendour in the Grass is returning to North Byron Parklands for another year of festival merriment. As usual, speculation has run wild in anticipation of the lineup announce — will Childish Gambino be on the lineup (and actually show)? Will there by more than three females? — but the details for Splendour 2019 are finally here.

And we're happy to report that some of the rumours were true. Childish Gambino — AKA Donald Glover — himself, will be Splendouring. Well, we hope. Childish Gambino recently cancelled his Spilt Milk appearance and Australian tour due to an ongoing injury, but the lineup also doesn't state that Splendour is his only show — so stay tuned for news of a replacement national tour (hopefully).

The other huge names are Chance the Rapper and Tame Impala, the former who is American rap royalty, the latter homegrown Aussie talent who were recently been announced as one of the headline acts for this year's Coachella.

There's also a big female contingent — that is kick-ass but still nowhere near as big as the pool of male performers — which includes SZA, Santigold, Courtney Barnett, Thandi Phoenix, Hatchie, Meg Mac and all-female indie rock band Warpaint.

Also doing their only Australian shows at Splendour will be Santigold and Slaves. The lineup seems to go on forever, including Foals, The Streets, The Lumineers, James Blake, Friendly Fires, the list goes on. Anyway, we know what you're here for. We'll cut to the chase.
