The Strokes, James Blake and The Cure to play Splendour In The Grass 2016

The bonza Byron Bay bash also boasts (blimey) Santigold, Sigur Ros, and The Kills.

The Strokes, James Blake, and The Cure are all set to play at Splendour In The Grass festival this year. The Australian bash takes place 22nd-24th July in New South Wales near Byron Bay.

Also billed to play at the winter festival (yep, it’s in Australia, remember!) are Flume, Courtney Barnett, The Kills, Jack Garratt, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, The 1975, Santigold, Spring King, and Years & Years. Check out the full line-up on the festival’s official website, along with tickets, info, and all that other gubbins.

A newly reformed The Avalanches will also appear at the festival. The Australian band released their last album, ‘Since I Left You’, in 2000, and yesterday came out of hiding to announce performances at Splendour, Field Day, and Barcelona’s Primavera Sound.

Splendid news indeed!
