Spen­dour spins off

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY -

in the Grass pro­mot­ers have an­nounced a sis­ter fes­ti­val will ar­rive in Ade­laide for the first time, fea­tur­ing in­ter­na­tional stars Lana Del Ray and Band Of Skulls as head­lin­ers. The bill-shar­ing event – called Spin Off Fes­ti­val – will see Brook­lyn five­piece Friends take to the stage along­side Aus­tralian acts Kim­bra, Last Di­nosaurs, Bleed­ing Knees Club, The Rubens and DZ Deathrays. The one-day fes­ti­val will be held in the Ju­bilee Pav­il­ion at Wayville Show­ground, Ade­laide, on Satur­day July 21. The an­nounce­ment comes days af­ter Perth’s own scaled-down ver­sion of Splen­dour, On The Bright Side, con­firmed it would take a year off. Dis­ap­pointed fans in Western Australia have been buoyed slightly by the news the Smash­ing Pump­kins and Met­ric will play sideshows in the West. How­ever with no sideshows an­nounced for Queens­land, devo­tees who missed out on Splen­dour tick­ets will have to head south to Syd­ney or Melbourne to see the head­lin­ing acts per­form solo.

The Smash­ing Pump­kins, Jack White and Missy Hig­gins play Splen­dour in the Grass, at Be­longil Fields, By­ron Bay, from July 27-29.
