Splendour In The Grass - 2017

2017

Splendour In The Grass 2017 is looking huge, with sets from worldwide *stars* like QOTSA and LCD Soundsystem, and homegrown heroes in Vance Joy, Tash Sultana and more. As is tradition, triple j Unearthed are giving you the opportunity to open up the 2017 mainstage!
 
Here's how it works: we'll fly one winner from anywhere in Australia to SITG, put you up in VIP camping, and you'll have the honour of following in the footsteps of previous Splendour comp winners like Alex Lahey, Tired Lion, Airling, and Kingswood.
 
All you gotta do to be in the running is to have your music up on Unearthed by June 11th. It's as simple as that! We'll pick our winner from there. Don't stress on it if your songs are 'pending' on the website either - we listen to everything before we make a decision! GOOD LUCK!
 
We're also gonna chuck one band from the local government areas of Byron, Ballina, Lismore, and Tweed (Unearthed Region: North Coast, NSW) on the bill! So if you're a local act, get keen.
 
All your Splendour info is on their official website.

Splendour In The Grass - 2015

2015

Splendour in the Grass have pulled out all the stops this year: the festival's 2015 lineup is huge, featuring sets from heavy hitters like Blur, Florence and the Machine, Mark Ronson, The Wombats, Tame Impala and more across its three days this July.

triple j Unearthed will be giving one artist from anywhere in the country the incredible opportunity to be flown to Byron, put up in guest camping for the weekend, and open the festival - performing the first set of the weekend at the ampitheatre mainstage.

We're also searching for one act from the Byron Bay area to play during the event. The selection zone for local bands covers the local government areas of Byron, Ballina, Lismore, and Tweed, with preference given to acts based in the Byron Shire.

To be in with a shot, you've gotta have your tracks up on triplejunearthed.com by June 14th. If they're still pending at that time, that's cool too: we listen to everything that gets uploaded before we make a decision on the winner. If your songs are already on Unearthed, that's great! You're automatically in the running. Lastly, if you're a local band, remember to include your postcode to set your region to NORTH COAST.
