Splendour In The Grass 2013lineup

WANT TO BUY SPLENDOUR TICKETS? HEAD HERE FOR MORE DETAILS

The Splendour In The Grass 2013 lineup has been revealed.

International acts confirmed for this year’s Splendour include The National, James Blake, Mumford and Sons, Empire Of The Sun, TV On The Radio and Babyshambles.

Splendour 2013 will take place from Friday, July 26 – Sunday, July 28 at the festival’s new site in North Byron Parklands, Yelgun. The event has been working for seven years to move to the new site, which lies 25 kilometres north of Byron proper and is a whopping 660 acres. For its first year on the site Splendour’s capacity will be capped at 25,000 people.

Speaking with FL last year, promoter Jessica Ducrou said that for the first few events at Yelgun they will stick with a similar stage set-up to Belongil Fields: “I think we are looking at Big Tops, certainly for the first couple of years. For us it is just about growing into the space and looking at what works best we have a pretty good idea, we have a pretty good idea. Once you do one show, like you do every year, we look at how we can improve for the next.”

The good news is that ticketing prices are pretty much the same as last year. Splendour In The Grass 2013 single-day tickets will set you back $140 plus booking fees, a mere $5 increase on last year’s $135 single-day tickets. Three-day event tickets remain fixed at $350 plus booking fees and camping tickets will set you back $99 plus booking fees (same as last year). The only surprise is something called a “Country Club ticket” ($699 plus booking fees), which given the price point, seems to be a similar concept to last year’s “Gold VIP tickets”.

Ok, so its decent, the headliners and sub-headliners are just very underwhelming. How the fuck are OM&M sub-headlining?
But there is some good stuff mid-way down the list. Keen for Klaxons, MS MR, Everything Everything, Haim and The National.
I go regardless of lineup anyway, so I'll still be there.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 24th Apr, 2013

Isn't SITG smaller this year? It doesn't need to flog as many tickets so they probably aren't taking big risks with huge acts.

It doesn't even seem that small. It seems like it's the same size, pulling power wise, as when it was a two day event.

It seems that if the line up is more conservative than other years they are just playing it safe while they debut their new site, I guess.

01seb

01seb said on the 24th Apr, 2013

It's bigger than last year, but not as big as Woodford. I'm guessing they spent a lot of money on the site this year and didn't have as much to spend on the music. It's a bit of a shame. Last year's lineup was easily bigger.

I also think they went for the big 'hype' acts this year because they probably knew that was the only way to shift tickets with their smaller budget.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 24th Apr, 2013

I thought I read the new site only held 25K?

01seb

01seb said on the 24th Apr, 2013

It's only allowed 25 000 this year, it can hold a lot more than that...

Last year was 17 000 and Woodford was 30 000

You just answered your own question.


Love the lineup. Definitely not as big as the last few years, but there's more than enough to get me there. So excited to see Frank Ocean

craig123 said on the 24th Apr, 2013

Yelgun has approval in Yr 5 to go to 35K. I expect the area could hold a lot more but thats enough for know. 25K on first year is ok by me.

I'm gearing up for this one as the sun goes down.

I think it could easily be one of the splendour owners (bands) reforming for the new site!

Could Powderfinger Christen the new site?

georges2009 said on the 24th Apr, 2013

i agree with the om & m sub-headlining comment they should be further down the line-up. im a bit on the fence about frank ocean headlining esp. when he is up there because of a no show at future and a tonne of hype. lots of quality aust. bands though with you am i and presents; i wonder if this will leave a hole in the aust. contingent on the bdo?

shazie

shazie said on the 24th Apr, 2013



Going by the the last BDO, it seems they're much more focused on internationals and much less focused on Australian bands.

lineofbestfit

lineofbestfit said on the 24th Apr, 2013

pretty dull line up, will go to of monsters and men, sarah blasko and cold war kids/portugal sideshows, no doubt of monsters and men will have advanced to the enmore by this tour, have a feeling kate nash will do harvest or her own promo tour.

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 24th Apr, 2013

Single day ticket for the Sunday for me. Frank Ocean, James Blake and Of Monsters and Men are worth the trip for me. Good locals too with Hermitude and Presets.

Bit underwhelming for mine, but I think last year's top acts would've been pretty hard to top.

VegetableLasagne

VegetableLasagne said on the 24th Apr, 2013

severe lack of headliners, especially if you dont like hip hop like i, but decent depth. enough to justify my ticket anyway..

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 24th Apr, 2013

Frank Ocean doesn't play hip hop. Neither do The National.

I bet Mumford and Sons drop nasty ghetto beats, though.

VegetableLasagne

VegetableLasagne said on the 24th Apr, 2013

ok, whatever frank ocean does i dont like it. if the national weren't playing, i wouldn't be going. tvotr and everything everything are nice suprises though.

Oflick

Oflick said on the 24th Apr, 2013

The National will probably be back next year. If they're the only band you want to see maybe you should just wait until they return?

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 24th Apr, 2013

Pro tip for Oflick: Next time I rip on you about never seeing Arcade Fire, remember, I've never seen The National. And I jerk it and cry myself to sleep to their albums on the reg.

There won't be another announcement.

Oflick

Oflick said on the 24th Apr, 2013



I'm rather tempted to buy a ticket now just to see the National so I can rub it in your face.

But don't worry, I'm not going to. I'm all talk and no action. And I'm not even that good at talking (or in this case, typing). I tend to give up right in

Braveheart81

Dwayne Barry

Dwayne Barry said on the 24th Apr, 2013



The National is great music to jerk off to while howling at the moon. When I listen to them, I like to ballerina on my coffee table cock in hand.

But they will almost certainly be back sooner rather than later. They were here twice in 2011 remember, so I think they like Australia.

Pete Doherty probably knew. Then again, it's just as likely he didn't.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 24th Apr, 2013




They were pretty average (especially compared to The Libertines) but Fuck Forever is a cracking song. I'd love to hear them play that.

Patrick Holmes

Patrick Holmes said on the 24th Apr, 2013

After being hasty with my opinion of this lineup I have realised how wrong I initially was. Actually such a rad lineup! I think knowing a bunch of the acts before because of leaks and such, which happened to be some of my favourite additions to the lineup, may have made me not realise the magnitude of it. Those headliners might not be as big as I was expecting but Keen on them all, and so many great mid and low teir acts. I think they made a pretty good decision in getting a lot of great smaller/cheaper acts, than putting all their money into big and expensive headliners. Really keen to attend!

Blasted

Blasted said on the 24th Apr, 2013



I think Sunday's mystery band slot has been set aside for them as it will probably take 2 days to get Pete through customs

really a lot of these bands have like 1 album, and are only well known due to dribble gay ramming them down all y'all ears ...

Great local lineup, pretty average international lineup, especially the headliners... super keen to see Frank Ocean but I thought he'd have been a great afternoon Mix-Up stage slot rather than a headliner. Oh well.. there's more than enough to get me there, will probably have a bigger weekend because there are less must-see acts. Hopefully the tipi forrest will run a bit later and all that brostep garbage they were playing last year will be banned

He retired the name Whitley and moved to Europe. I assumed he was going to just start doing stuff under his own name.

But then Dew Process announced a few weeks back that he was back, still under Whitley, and will have an album out later this year. So it was pretty much a given he would be on Splendour.

Another chance for people to talk over him and not pay any attention, which is basically why he quit in the first place.

Guys focus. What about Whiplash?

shazie

shazie said on the 26th Apr, 2013



I think we should be giving more attention to Wiplash.

Whiplash is a non-medical term describing a range of injuries to the neck caused by or related to a sudden distortion of the neck[1] associated with extension.[2] The term "whiplash" is a colloquialism. "Cervical acceleration-deceleration" (CAD) describes the mechanism of the injury, while the term "whiplash associated disorders" (WAD) describes the injury sequelae and symptoms.

Whiplash is commonly associated with motor vehicle accidents, usually when the vehicle has been hit in the rear;[3] however, the injury can be sustained in many other ways, including headbanging, bungee jumping and falls.[4] It is one of the main injuries covered by the car insurers.[citation needed] In the United Kingdom, 430,000 people made an insurance claim for whiplash in 2007, accounting for 14% of every driver's premium.

That should raise awareness and hopefully no one has to endure Wiplash (I know Jose had to once and that was awful).

Do you mean talk over him at live shows? Or just in general, as in people not paying attention to his music?

gumbuoy

gumbuoy said on the 26th Apr, 2013



Live shows. I must have seen him maybe 3 or 4 times in support of Go Forth, Find Mammoth, and from memory, every time it was just him and an acoustic guitar, and people would just talk right over him, even right up the front. It always felt like he found that really frustrating.

jacegalvin

jacegalvin said on the 26th Apr, 2013



Yeah I can imagine.
I absolutely loved Go Forth, so many great tracks on there. So good to see that he's back.

But I can imagine Splendour being really bad for people talking over him, especially if he's in the middle of the day or couple of spots before a big act.

gumbuoy

gumbuoy said on the 26th Apr, 2013

Yeah Go Forth was fantastic. I was always kinda torn over his quitting (especially since he never explicitly said it was because noone paid attention to him or bought his album). On the one hand, it's all just part of being a musician, and you gotta be able to deal with it. On the other hand, it's not like he had a big cry or temper tantrum or anything. He just decided he didn't wanna do it any more, which is fine - musicians don't owe us anything, except for Arcade Fire, and the Thermals.
