More "proof" that Outkast andFoster the People will be atSplendour 2014

Fuji Rock has added OutKast, Foster the People, and Lorde to its lineup strengthening rumours that the acts will also appear at Splendour in the Grass, which is held on the same weekend.

Lorde, of course, played at Splendour in 2013 as a last-minute replacement for Frank Ocean and Foster The People have already confirmed to FL that they’ll tour Australia later this year off the back of their second album Supermodel. Other new additions to the Fuji lineup include Blur frontman Damon Albarn, Kelis and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

Both Splendour and Fuji festivals will take place from July 25 – 27 and have been known to share several draw-card acts in recent years. The first round lineup for this year’s Fuji festival features headline acts including Kanye West, Jack Johnson, Franz Ferdinand, Basement Jaxx, Manic Street Preachers. But there are also several other acts on the lineup that appear to be strong contenders for a place on the Splendour bill including English indie favourites Bombay Bicycle Club, SBTRKT, Jungle, recent Laneway festival visitors Parquet Courts, and Irish “savours of rock” The Strypes. London Grammarwho have strongly hinted at a return to Australia for Splendour – are also included on the Fuji lineup.

While none of last year’s Fuji headliners – Nine Inch Nails, Bjork and The Cure – made the trip down to Byron Bay but the two festivals did share several acts including Mumford & Sons, Of Monsters And Men, Haim, Portugal The Man and Daughter. In 2012 the two festivals both featured sets from Jack White, At the Drive-In, The Kooks, Gossip, The Shins, Django Django, Michael Kiwanuka, and Explosions in the Sky.

Japan’s other major summer music festival Summersonic, which runs just a few weeks after Splendour on the weekend of August 16 – 18, has also announced many of the acts for its 2014 lineup including Arctic Monkeys, Phoenix, Kasabian, Pixies, Robert Plant, Azealia Banks, The 1975 and Metronomy. Last year Splendour and Summersonic both featured sets from Jake Bugg, FIDLAR, Alt-J, Klaxons, Jagwar Ma, and Palma Violets.

Other artists on the ever-growing Splendour rumour mill include James Vincent McMorrow, Max Frost, and Sky Ferreira.

Leak the line up already or give me a fake leak to think about.

Outkast and London Grammar could mean a day trip (if they were to play the same day of course...).

Could try a Sydney trip but would have to hope there was other stuff on at the same time due to the gigs being inevitably cancelled with my attendance.

Hoping its not OutKast, I may be the out cast but I just never really got well into their music. I know if they're on the lineup they will be the huge draw so hoping for someone different. I guess there not many touring though at the moment... that I know of. They are the buzz-band right now.

There's a prediction competition in the Splendour sub-forum up and running if anyone's interested.
You could even win some junk from Grattan's desk!

I know those words, but that sentence makes no sense.
