Kevin Parker of Tame Impala performs at the 2017 Panorama Music Festival at Randall's Island on July 29, 2017 in New York City. 

Chance The Rapper, Tame Impala and Childish Gambino will headline the 19th annual Splendour In the Grass, one of Australia’s most popular festivals.   

Gambino, the alter-ego of Atlanta star Donald Glover whose hit “This Is America” went to No. 1 in Australia, makes his awaited return to these parts after a foot injury forced him to scrap his slated tour here last November.

Meanwhile, Splendour veterans Tame Impala will make the trip home after completing headline stints at Coachella (alongside Gambino), Mo Pop and Glastonbury Festival.

Also joining this year’s Splendour lineup is SZA, Foals, Catfish And The Bottlemen, James Blake, Santigold, The Lumineers, The Streets and many others, while Courtney Barnett, Matt Corby, Meg Mac, Dope Lemon, Pond, Wolfmother, Thelma Plum and The Teskey Brothers are among the homegrown contingent.

The brainchild of Secret Sounds CEOs Paul Piticco and Jessica Ducrou, Splendour will be held July 19 to July 21 at its permanent home at North Byron Parklands. 

Since launching in 2001, Splendour has become into one of the hottest tickets on Australia’s festivals calendar. SITG stands out as a mid-winter camping event, held in one of the country’s most sought-after holiday spots, Byron Bay. And the international performers are typically “in-cycle.” It’s not uncommon for the big names to test new tunes, and tickets typically sell out.  

It’s also one of the pricier tickets going. Single day entry costs Australian A$185 ($131) plus booking fees and credit card charges, while a three-day pass is priced at Australian A$415 ($294) plus fees and charges. A “VIP Village” three-day event ticket is A$799 ($567) plus extras.

Onsite camping is available for up to five nights, with early entry into the campgrounds available from July 17. Tickets are on sale via Moshtix from early next Thursday, April 11.
