This year's Splendour in the Grass lineup has dropped, and hey: it's good enough to actually make one want to go to Byron Bay. Kendrick Fucking Lamar is headlining! Kendrick! K Dot! Kung Fu Kenny! He's back for his first visit since 2016, and his first visit since the release of DAMN. last year. Also headlining: Lorde, making another trip down touring Melodrama, and Vampire Weekend, who will hopefully have some new music by then.

The undercard is stacked too, featuring Soccer Mommy, Miguel, Khalid, Chvrches, Franz Ferdinand, MGMT, Middle Kids, Alex Lahey, Lil Xan and Baker Boy. And, unfortunately, The Wombats. Last year's Splendour lineup included Queens of the Stone Age, LCD Soundsystem and The xx.
