Splendour and its sideshows are soon upon us, and things just seem to be getting sweeter and sweeter. If you’ve got tickets to Azealia Banks, you’ll now get some stellar raps from Aussie boy Ivan Ooze, if you haven’t got tickets yet we suggest you get them now! This lad is tops. Prince Bandroom, Melbourne – July 26.
Known for their clean record in releasing high quality albums, the live set is much the same with the ground-breaking heavy music band The Dillinger Escape Plan. If you’re not convinced, head to the Prince Bandroom in Melbourne on August 28, be ready to be proven wrong. Tickets are available via Oztix now.
Beyond the valley will return this year, but not as we know it. The festival will return over New Years Eve and this time will be held at an exciting new location within The Gippsland Parklands. With a similar two-stage set up, this year’s event will run over three days, beginning on 29th December, with the options of two day tickets also available.
Are you in a little need of some education on the human body? Well, Josh Pyke’s your man and his lyrical clip for ‘Hollering Hearts’ is where it’s at. Donning a skeleton suit, Pyke slowing gets transformed into the man we know him as, organ by organ. “It was great fun getting dressed up to create the foundation for the Hollering Hearts lyric video, I’ve been wanting to rock a skeleton body suit for a while now,” jokes Pyke.
The time is nigh to sort out your clashes. The set times were released last week and with the festival this weekend, time to get those pens out and circle the lucky musicians who’ll be seeing your faces over the four days. Head to: http://splendourinthegrass.com/ to see the times.
