The Bands

So what have I got to look forward to at Splendour In The Grass 2010? Celebrating their 10th anniversary, Australia’s biggest winter music festival has just gotten even bigger and better! Having moved out of the contested Byron Bay to the countryside of Woodford, and spanning 3 days and 3 night, with more stages over more acreage than ever before, the roll call is pure quality!

Aside from Glasto or Coachella, neither of which I have ever been to, I can’t imagine so many brilliant bands in one place. The lineup reads like a mix between JUICE editorial planning for Listen Up and Chats over the last year – lots of exciting new bands so fresh their still playing the smaller club circuit and plenty of those dream bands that fill stadiums. And The Strokes headline! Hamagad!!!

Here’s a list of some of the standout bands due to perform. I can’t wait!! If Malaysia can’t bring these bands here, then at least Air Asia X can take you to them!
