Bands not playing Splendour InThe Grass 2012

While festivals like Fuji Rock and Summer Sonic in Japan have helped us make some educated bets about which bands are looking likely for Splendour In The Grass 2012, there is a handful of European and US Festivals happening over the last weekend of July that mean we can now also rule out potential visitors.

Among the most notable bands who won’t be entertaining the masses at Byron this year are Iron and Wine, Alabama Shakes and Of Monsters And Men who have been confirmed to play the New Port Folk Festival; Matisyahu, Ozomatli and Gary Clark Jr who will be busy at Floyd Fest in the US; Iggy and The Stooges, The Roots, Gogol Bordello and Noah And The Whale who are scheduled to play Green Fest; and The Black Keys who are heading up New York’s Randalls island festival.

To make this nice and simple and to help you spot a fake when those lineup posters start popping up all over the internet this month, here is handy list of the definites, maybes and no chances for Splendour In The Grass 2012.

Seriously people, we have like EIGHT threads for Splendour requests/predictions, don't turn this into one of those too.

I'd like to take this moment to officially announce that I will not be playing Splendour this year, due to conflicts with organisers on how many pies would be in my rider.

It was the first splendour thread that I could see on the list, and I couldn't be bothered looking for more because it was info I didnt really care a lot.

No Grimes for splendour.... though harvest sounds possible


"Yes, we're either coming in November or December. There are a few different ways we could come so we're just trying to figure out the most economically viable option that fits the schedule. So yeah, I will be coming for sure, we're just figuring out exactly how it's going to go down. Obviously there's the festival route or there's the 'do a bunch of gigs' route."

was there ever any real chance of Weezer

berlinchair101 said on the 11th Apr, 2012

Oh no, Weezer can't make it!

crob said on the 11th Apr, 2012

maybe they will get good charlotte in to do a weezer cover set

Blasted

Oh man that would be awesome, maybe they can have Splendour at Eatons Hill.

jacegalvin

jacegalvin said on the 12th Apr, 2012

best coast ruled out twice

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 12th Apr, 2012

Bloc Party playing in Hawaii on the 30/7 :(
Sigur Ros also ruled out in USA/Canada (not sure if this one has already been said)

Really dissapointed these were 2 bands I was hoping for at Splendour.
Im sure many will agree

p1owz0r

p1owz0r said on the 12th Apr, 2012

I'm pretty sure they could play on the 27th and make it to Hawaii in time. In fact that would be a pretty logical thing to do if they were heading to the states afterwards.

Many of the bands in Splendour play on Japan on the same weekend don't forget, they are not adverse to travelling.

RAMONESelaar

RAMONESelaar said on the 12th Apr, 2012

Surely Sigur Ros could arguably make it too? Their first show is the 30th, so there's feasibly enough time for them to play the first night.

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 13th Apr, 2012

Yeah I guess it is definately possible. But yeah if they headline earlier nights...fine it doesn't rule them out but makes it less likely...or as it has been pointed out possibly more likely. haha fuck

RAMONESelaar

RAMONESelaar said on the 13th Apr, 2012

Don't take that as saying you're wrong! I'd say they're like 90% ruled out, but there's still that small chance that something might happen. Kinda still holding out hope for Sigur Ros, just because I know that'll be good to convince one of my good mates to come

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 13th Apr, 2012

oh God I am wrong!!! Nah all good I agree with you guys and I would also be very keen to see Sigur Ros and one of my good mates is also hanging on for them.
