Splendour in the Grass Pre-Party Announced
We’re just over a week out from one of the nation’s biggest festivals of the year and people are starting to show Splendour fever already. The official Splendour in the Grass Pre-Party Byron Bay is a traditional ritual thrown by Secret Sounds and we are stoked to let you know it will kick off on Thursday July 21 on the the eve of day one.
This mighty pre-party line-up will warm us up for the rowdy weekend including The Avalanches, Harts, The Kills, Methyl Ethel and a KLLO DJ set.
All of these artists are crunching the scene right now and we are stoked to have The Avalanches back on the stage after 16 years of us waiting patiently by the door. This will be just a taste of their highly anticipated live show at Splendour and comes right in time for their sophomore album Wildflower.
Harts will be setting the room ablaze with his Earth-defying performance. We’re obsessed with his hit single ‘Peculiar’ and his live presence is stamped with rock n’ roll royalty ‘cause this guy oozes talent left right and centre. We have his Splendour set on our go-to list, but this pre-party show is just the cherry on the cake. It’s no wonder the late, great master of music Prince spent time jamming with him at his Paisley Park Studios in Minneapolis.
The Kills continue to dominate with their brand new album Ash and Ice while Perth trio Methyl Ethyl welcome the attention they so totally deserve. we can’t wait for Melbourne male duo Kllo to be spinning electro-pop feels around the room.
Pre-sale tickets go on sale this Wednesday July 13 at 9am, with general tickets going on sale at 9am Thursday July 14.
