CHECK OUT THE LATEST
The lineup drop means we can officially begin the 2015 Splendour rumour mill and if we’re going off this first announcement, we could be seeing The Bohicas, Of Monsters and Men, Happy Mondays and more down-under in July.
Fuji Rock Festival takes place on the same weekend as Splendour (July 24 – 26) and has overlapped with the Splendour lineup a number of times in the past. In 2014, the festivals shared acts like Outkast, Lily Allen, Darkside and Kelis while in 2013, Mumford and Sons and Of Monsters and Men played both.
In contrast, last year’s Fuji Rock headliners Franz Ferdinand, Arcade Fire and Jack Johnson didn’t appear on the Splendour bill.
Unfortunately it’s unlikely that Foo Fighters will make the trip to Australia in July as they are already playing stadium dates in the country in February in support of their Sonic Highways LP. Muse haven’t played an Australian festival since they headlined Big Day Out in 2010.
Check out the full first lineup announcement below.
