As is tradition with Splendour in the Grass these days, the festival still has changes and surprises up its sleeves, even weeks out from playtime in North Byron. Today, the official set times and maps were released, but not without a sneaky line up change. Unfortunately for George Ezra fans, the British musician has had to cancel his trip out to Australia, leaving a spot on the line up that party-starters Peking Duk have now stepped in to fill.
Scheduling issues has meant Ezra’s original Australian plans have had to be postponed, with him offering the following apology.
“I’m gutted to have to do this at such short notice and apologise to all of you that have bought tickets and were looking forward to it. This was a shit decision to have to make, I hope you understand and you’ll still be there when we come back. George x”
Sunday night at Splendour also signals ultra party times, with LCD Soundsystem landing an extended set time out in the Amphitheatre. Sigur Ros as well have an extended Sunday night show, meaning all the feelings will be flourishing in full out in the open air.
