TICKETS ARE ON SALE – FIND OUT ALL THE DETAILS HERE!

It’d be safe to say that the anticipation for this year’s Splendour in the Grass lineup announcement has been big. After the promise that the bill won’t feature any headliners of the Coldplay ilk (phew), a relocation to the original site of Belongil Fields, some exciting lineup rumours and the confirmation that this year’s event will still be three big days long, the 2012 edition could very well be one of the festival’s best yet. So without further ado, here’s who we’ll be seeing at Byron this year.

Jack White - headlining? seriously?
Bloc Party - one album wonders who were tepid at Splendour '05, so let's give them another go in 2012 shall we? pffft
Smashing Pumpkins - aka Billy Corgan and his backing band
At The Drive-In - middling band with a couple of good songs written 13 years ago
The Shins - with a lineup this weak should probably be headlining
Hilltop Hoods - making their 500th appearance at an Aussie festival
The Kooks - crap dadrock
Gossip - decent enough I guess
Miike Snow - decent, but played Splendour 2 years ago
Dirty Three - decent but can see them at a pub
Lana Del Rey - OK if you wanna deal with sardine crowd of teenie whippets
360 - OK if you wanna deal with sardine crowd of teenie wiggas
Azealia Banks - who?
Tame Impala - lame impala
Explosions In The Sky - cult band nobody will watch 1
The Afghan Whigs - cult band nobody will watch 2
Missy Higgins - compulsory Aussie bore-folk signing
Wolfmother - lol
Metric - OK but played Parklife 3 years ago
Kimbra - OK played Splendour 2 years ago
Mudhoney - OK if you wanna relive your 1992 flannel days
Spiderbait - OK if you wanna relive your 1992 ozrock days
Ladyhawke - OK
Django Django - OK

So $350 for half a dozen acts I've seen a couple of times before, plus Django Django. Pass.
