T he 2018 three-day Splendour In The Grass festival in Byron Bay is set to be one of the biggest yet, with massive acts signed to perform at the mid-winter concert.

Kendrick Lamar and Lorde are being billed as the hottest artists to see at Splendour in 2018. Kendrick Lamar topped the Triple J Hottest 100 this year with his song “HUMBLE.” and had four songs feature on the list in total while Lorde’s “Green Light” came in at number six, again entering the list with four tracks.

Other international acts like 20 year old American sensation Khalid who released his debut album American Teen last year and had two songs in the Hottest 100, and Franz Ferdinand will be the big-ticket acts at Splendour amongst the massive line-up.

Local talent is also featured. The Hilltop Hoods are part of the local line up continuing their year of non-stop touring despite not releasing an album since 2016.

Gang of Youths are going to be riding a wave of popularity after a massive 2017. Their second album, Go Farther in Lightness, was ARIA certified gold and produced four tracks which made it to the Hottest 100 with “Let Me Down Easy” being voted in at number two.

Other Australian artists like DMA’s, Methyl Ethyl, Ball Park Music and Dune Rats will provide nearly endless entertainment across the three days, not to mention the countless other acts who will be performing as well as the other activities on-site.

Despite selling out tickets within 24 hours, Moshtix will open up a place for the re-sale of unwanted tickets from the 14th of May onwards, in order to combat scalping issues which have plagued Splendour in the past.
