Splendour in the Grass 2012 Line-up

This morning, the Splendour in the Grass line-up was announced. A lot was to be expected, especially those who have been following the rumours, with Jack White, Bloc Party, and Smashing Pumpkins chosen to headline each night. With the festival moving back to Byron Bay after two years at Woodford, the line-up is smaller than the previous two years. With no huge mainstream acts like last year, the festival is more suited to the music-fan this year, which is reflected in the cheaper ticket prices.

I still have a bit of a problem with the number of international acts that are touring again. Artists like Explosions In The Sky, Mudhoney, Gossip, Miike Snow and Smashing Pumpkins have all toured Australia in the last 18 months. There’s still plenty of other quality international acts, not to mention a great range of buzz Aussie acts.
