Maybe you have tickets to Splendour in the Grass in your hot little hands (or, to be more accurate, your inbox). Maybe you missed out. Whether you're celebrating or commiserating, Bistrotheque has the event for it. The muddy music fest in question might still be months away, but the Valley venue is throwing a party to revel in its stellar lineup.
Just head to Brunswick Street on April 21, close your eyes and pretend that you're in Byron Bay. Bistrotheque's array of bands and DJs will do their part to help make that happen. And if you're keen for a brew as you're soaking in the tunes, don't worry — you won't have to buy drink tokens.
As for who'll be buzzing through your ears, here's a refresher. The xx, Queens of the Stone Age, LCD Soundsystem, Royal Blood, Haim, Sigur Rós, Schoolboy Q, Vance Joy, Two Door Cinema Club, Peking Duk, RL Grime, Bonobo, Father John Misty, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Tash Sultana, Paul Kelly, Stormzy, Future Islands, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, BANKS, Bernard Fanning, Dune Rats, Cut Copy... the list goes on.
