Music Roundup. Splendour Edition.
SPLENOUR in the grass tickets went on sale last week and sold out in a record time of just 43 minutes. The three-day music festival has finally returned to Byron Bay’s Belongil Fields this year with one hell of an impressive line-up. Bloc Party, The Kooks, Lana Del Rey, Hilltop Hoods, Kimbra and local Angus Stone to name just a few.
After three years, Bloc Party will be returning to Australia for Splendour 2012. Debuting material from their forthcoming new album (as well as our favourite old stuff) I can’t wait to see these guys perform live!
Ever since Kimbra’s duet with Gotye in the worldwide smash hit ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ I’ve been waiting to see this quirky, soulful songstress perform live… Can’t wait!
LANA DEL REY
Welcome Lana Del Rey. Introduced to many of her fans through her DIY video for, “Video Games”, her contemporary, darkly enchanting album ‘Born to Die’ is currently on high rotation around the world.
Splendour 2012 here we come!
