Splendour line-up revealed
MUSIC-lovers around the country were eagerly scanning the web yesterday morning waiting for the hotly-anticipated 2012 Splendour in the Grass line-up to be announced.
They were not disappointed.
The three-day music festival to be held near Byron Bay between July 27-29 features a line-up this year sure to appeal to a wide range of music tastes.
Headlining the buffet of musical treats is former White Stripes frontman, Jack White while Bloc Party and the Smashing Pumpkins round off the other top spots.
Following them is a broad selection of home-grown and international artists spanning genres from alternative, blues, folk, rock, metal, hip-hop and DJs.
As always, the festival will also pack in tons of markets, workshops, bars, food and buskers to keep the punters happy.
"The show has grown over the past few years with the addition of an extra day," festival co-producer Jessica Ducrou said.
"We have a bunch more bands on the line-up and new venues."
Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Saturday, May 5.
