The Australian festival takes place this July.

Vampire Weekend, Lorde, Chvrches and Kendrick Lamar are among the names appearing at this year’s Splendour in The Grass.

The Aussie festival - which takes place between 20th and 22nd July at North Byron Parklands, NSW - will also feature acts such as Franz Ferdinand, Albert Hammond Jr, Marmozets, Alex Lahey, Superorganism and Bully.

Both Lorde and Vampire Weekend’s sets are Australian exclusives.

Lorde released ‘Melodrama’ last year, of course, while we’re sitting all digits, limbs, and whatever else we can find crossed for a new Vampire Weekend record in 2018.
