It’s that time of the year again! One of Australia’s most loved niche festivals, Splendour in the Grass, is just round the corner and set to kick of on the 24th of July in the North Byron parklands. If you are lucky enough to be in possession of a ticket to the fest, your day is about to get a lot better. As if the lineup wasn’t already packed with worldwide talent thanks to acts like Mark Ronson, Florence and the Machine, and Blur gracing the main stage, the Red Bull Music Academy have just dropped their stage lineup. Their additions are so great, we got an adrenaline rush just reading through the list.
DJ/Producer Nosaj Thing, rapper Jay Electronica, JSMN, and Shlohmo are just a few of the massive names that will be playing at the Red Bull side stage and making you wish that you were in Byron for what is set to be one of the year’s landmark festivals.
While the festival has already sold out, the good people at Red Bull Music Academy are giving fans one last shot to boogie down with 5 double passes to be won. You can enter here.
