We know that Gorillaz, The Strokes and Tyler, The Creator stand for Splendor’s long awaited return. But that is only the beginning of a mastodon line-up.
This morning, Bryce & Ebony rolled out the red carpet for the Splendor In The Grass 2022 series at Triple J Breakfast, with nearly 100 names booked in for the revised three-day extravaganza in North Byron Parklands next July.
At the top of the long list of international players searching for are Glass Animals, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Duke Dumont, Jack Harlow, Yungblud, Jungle and Kacey Musgraves. Dillon Francis, Mura Masa, Sofi Tukker and Aitch are also coming, as well as the buzzing British actor Wet Leg, breakout star Holly Humberstone, Biig Piig, Oliver Tree, JPEGMAFIA, renforshort, Maxo Kream, PUP and Liam Gallagher! (Oasis does anyone sing along?)
Ruby Fields, DMA’S and ARIA and J Award sweeping Genesis Owusu lead the impressive Australian contingent. You also have NIMA’s winners Baker Boy, Budjerah, Miiesha and JK-47, Violent Soho, G Flip, The Jungle Giants, Amyl & The Sniffers, Ruel, Cub Sport, King Stingray, Stella Donnelly, The Chats, Sycco, Confidence Man, Julia Stone, Triple One, Sly Withers, MAY-A, George Alice and Hooligan Hefs.
Gorillaz, the world’s greatest virtual band from the brains of Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, will surely bring a giant spectacle to the amphitheater as Friday night’s headlines. NYC’s finest indie rock The Strokes closes Saturday night, and hip-hop author Tyler, The Creators’ incredible live show, closes Splendor 2022 on Sunday. (They also play side shows if you can not come to the festival)
There are MANY more we could focus on, but it’s best to just see the whole series day by day below. And also check out who Double J is excited about (Tip: these are Parquet Courts, Grinspoon and Orville Peck).

(Please do not buy from scalpers. Bad idea.)
Today’s line-up announcement follows several major postponements and reorganisations of the 20th anniversary celebration of one of Australia’s largest and most beloved festivals.
“We are confident that moving the festival to July 2022 will finally see us enjoy Splendor In The Grass in all its glory,” festival co-founders Jessica Ducrou and Paul Pittico said back in August, about yet another date change in response to ongoing influences by COVID.
“[By July] more of the population will be vaccinated, international talents will have the opportunity to enter the country more freely and we will be able to deliver [Splendour] that you know and love. ”
triple j is itching to get back to the event and we’re planning a big comeback to bring you the best of Splendor In The Grass next year. Expect exclusive live sets, interviews, backstage talk, photos on the ground, videos and more hot coverage across all three days. We are already getting very excited!
