The countdown has begun. For Australians, Splendour in the Grass is almost here.
Splendour is an annual Australian music festival held in July at Woodford, Queensland (previously held at Belongil Fields, outside Byron Bay). The festival began in 2001 as a one-day event, but now spans a full three days. With a current capacity of 30K, Splendour is generally considered to be Australia’s largest winter (yes, it’s winter here) music festival, and attracts a large number of visitors from interstate and overseas.
The diverse lineup this year includes a number of huge international acts, including Kanye West, Coldplay, and the Hives. However, today I’m going to run you through my Top Ten International picks (in no particular order) ready to grace the Splendour stage in a matter of weeks.
