New website is as amazing as last year, I always really like their designs.

And has anyone thought of Noel Gallagher coming back to play Splendour. He has a convenient gap in his schedule from 17th July until 16th August and would make a great sub-headliner to Jack White one night imo

Also, and I may be reading into this way too much, but on the new website there's a link to Splendour's Rdio page which shows which albums they've had on high rotation and have been listening to recently.

Recently added albums: The Mars Volta, Sigur Ros, Vampire Weekend and Children Collide.
High Rotation: Paul Weller, DZ Deathrays, Canyons, Dandy Warhols.

I wouldn't read into too much. Although I do think Sigur Ros are a good chance.

I'm sure they were strongly rumoured (I haven't read the whole thread), but my housemate who works for universal music has informed me that Bloc Party and the Shins are 100% confirmed.

The Tourist Village is where most of us have booked. Just across the road from the Splendour site. I don't know how much accom they have left though, probably best to call them and see.

I've never really listened to them much before, but I found the Coachella set quite interesting. If (when) they get announced for Splendour, I'll definitely give them a proper listen, but even just going off Coachella I'd certainly be interested in seeing them.

Not sure if they've been mentioned already, but anyway, Spiritualized for Splendour?

New album out soon, if not already. They're currently touring Europe I think and they have dates in the US until the end of May, so by July they'll either be free or finished touring.

Gman brought them up either here or in another thread. Apparently they said the usual "see you soon" crap when they played here a few months ago, so he's convinced they're doing Splendour or Harvest.

They toured here at the end of February, but I guess coming back at the end of July is not totally unreasonable.

They have a suspiciously Splendour sized gap... Not playing between the middle of July, and the middle of August. I hope they don't play, Pon De Floor is one of my favourite songs of all time. And I would fucking kill to see Original Don live.

Splendour announces locals pre sale


Says no limited allocation of tickets so in 5000 locals turn up and buy 4 each the festival is then sold out. Does this make anyone else nervous? Would be a good time to hit up someone you know in the area if they are going.
Mar: QOTSA/NIN
May: Primavera Sound
June: BoS

I'm seriously surprised it's been extended to Lennox Head, and not Ballina. I really don't understand why Lennox Head would be a consideration, more people fill Ballina during Splendour time than Lennox.

It usually sells out in less than an hour & can get really tense waiting in the online queue.

Make sure your on a computer with a decent internet speed/connection, hell make it three computers if you can.

People seem to be having relatively stress free experiences in the last few years buying tickets on i-phones so maybe have that ready to roll as well if possible.

Depending on the price of tickets & the lineup, the ease of buying them can vary every year. In saying that though, I've been to the last 5 & its always been a battle to secure a ticket.

Good Luck!
