Splendour in the Grass Has Announced the Stacked Full Lineup for Its Delayed 20th-Anniversary Fest
Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Glass Animals and Liam Gallagher are among the huge list of acts joining already-revealed headliners Gorillaz, The Strokes and Tyler, The Creator.
'Wonderwall' and 'Gold Lion' sing-alongs are coming to North Byron Bay Parklands next winter, when Splendour in the Grass finally — yes, finally — hosts its 20th-anniversary festival. Delayed for the past two years due to the pandemic, the event's milestone celebration had already locked in its July 2022 dates and its headliners — that'd be Gorillaz, The Strokes and Tyler, The Creator — and has now unveiled its full and characteristically jam-packed lineup.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Liam Gallagher help lead the complete roster of acts for 2022, alongside Glass Animals, Kacey Musgraves, Violent Soho, DMA's, Tim Minchin and The Jungle Giants. As usual, it's a stacked and eclectic list. And yes, with international tours starting to ramp up again since Australia's border rules changed, the bill features plenty of overseas names.
If you're looking for your gumboots already, your next stint of muddy dancing in a field will take place from Friday, July 22–Sunday, July 24 — and can include soaking in lightscapes and psychedelic art at the fest's Tipi Forest, listening to talks and debates at The Forum, witnessing experiments and taking part in workshops at The Science Tent, and giggling your way through Splendour Comedy Club sets.
You can also hit up the Global Village, which'll host the The World Stage, Village Green, bohemian Lounge, Healing Sanctuary and a silent disco, as well as craft markets and culinary options. Plus, the North Byron Parklands setup will welcome a few new bars — including the Rainbow Bar, which'll be big on glitter and host programming by LGBTQI community party markers, and the booze-free Temperance Bar.
If you have already purchased a ticket for SITG 2020 or 2021, you'll be happy to know that they're still valid for the 2022 edition. So, that's you sorted.
If you don't have a ticket yet, there'll be limited pre-loved tickets on sale from 9am on Monday, December 6.
