Splendour’s Spin Off Festival expands with another huge Aussie act

Can’t make it to Splendour In The Grass this year? Well Adelaide’s Spin Off Festival has you covered, with a bunch of brilliant artists making it to the overlooked South Aussie capital this July. Now, the one-day fest has expanded, with the addition of one of Australia’s best live acts.

Back in April, Spin Off announced its return to Adelaide for the first time since 2013, with acts such as The Wombats, The Smith Street Band, Meg Mac, and The Jungle Giants all making the trip over to SA for the fest.

Now, the festival has announced that none other than Skegss will also be appearing on the day, just a matter of weeks after they wrap up their national tour in support of their latest single, ‘Up In Smoke’.

Of course, this news also comes only a number of days after the band managed to perform with Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson at the Townsville leg of Groovin The Moo, with the Aussie rock legend riding his motorbike onstage to perform ‘New York California’ with the group.

Tickets to Spin Off are on sale now, so if you can’t make it up to Splendour In The Grass this year, maybe a trip over to Adelaide will help assuage that FOMO?
