Splendour’s Sideshows Are Here If You Missed Out On Tix To The Main Event

If you missed out on Splendour in the Grass tickets yesterday, then here’s your (second) chance to see your fave acts.

HAIM, Two Door Cinema Club, Maggie Rogers, Bishop Briggs, George Ezra, Father John Misty, Lemon Twigs, Rag’n’Bone Man and Tove Lo are all doing sideshows this year, with Sigur Rós doing a special lot of shows titled ‘An Evening With Sigur Rós‘.

It’ll be the first time the Icelandic group have toured Australia without a support band, with audiences being treated to a transcendental, career-spanning set that’s as “characteristically stunning, intense and cinematic as ever”, designed by the same team being their award-winning Knights of Illumination tour.
