After much anticipation, wild guesses and a few acts letting the cat out of the bag early (thank you, James Blake), the 2013 Splendour In The Grass line-up has been revealed. Leading the way is an act who has eluded Australia until now, Frank Ocean, backed up by TV On The Radio, The Presets, James Blake, Flume, Passion Pit, Klaxons and oh-so-many more. Scroll down for the full list.

Splendour In The Grass 2013 single-day tickets will set you back $140 plus booking fees. Three-day event tickets remain fixed at $350 plus booking fees and camping tickets are $99 plus booking fees (same as last year). The only surprise is something called a “Country Club ticket” ($699 plus booking fees), which given the price point, seems to be a similar concept to last year’s “Gold VIP tickets”.

Splendour 2013 will take place from Friday, July 26 to Sunday, July 28 at the festival’s new site in North Byron Parklands, Yelgun. The event has been working for seven years to move to the new site which is whopping a 660 acres. For its first year on the site Splendour’s capacity will be 25,000 people for the first year of a 5-year trial, with the potential for that capacity to increase annually by 2,500 if conditions are met.

Speaking with our sister site FasterLouder last year, promoter Jessica Ducrou said that for the first few events at Yelgun they will stick with a similar stage set-up to Belongil Fields: “I think we are looking at Big Tops, certainly for the first couple of years. For us it is just about growing into the space and looking at what works best we have a pretty good idea, we have a pretty good idea. Once you do one show, like you do every year, we look at how we can improve for the next.”
