With a solid reputation for booking some of the biggest acts touring the world right now, 2018 saw international heavyweights Kendrick Lamar, Vampire Weekend, Lorde and CHVRCHES take to the stage at the festival’s home at North Byron Parklands. Splendour in the Grass can’t wait to deliver another massive serving of incredible music to Australia in 2019. Now, must be time for a Strummer!
