With less than a month until we return to North Byron Parklands / Ngarindjin for the 21st edition of Splendour in the Grass, the festival is pleased to announce the exciting artists set to replace Slowthai and Rainbow Kitten Surprise this July, as well as reveal the playing times so you can get your festival schedule sorted…
Joining the Splendour 2023 lineup is one of hip-hop’s most animated and inventive artists Danny Brown! With his hyperactive flows, harrowing lyrics and boundary pushing beat selections, the Detroit rapper will have the Mix Up Stage heaving when he takes over on Friday for an exclusive Australian performance. One of the most sought-after global performers, Danny Brown’s career is the uncompromising work of a virtuosic talent who understands how to use his unique personality as a vicious instrument. There is the lingering sense of paranoia, the requisite survivor’s guilt and anxiety, but also hysterical punchlines and party anthems built to cause speakers to crumble into ashes. With reflection and celebration in each performance, Danny Brown will hit Australia fresh off the release of his collaborative album SCARING THE HOES with JPEGMAFIA
Thelma Plum will also be gracing Splendour, bringing her stunning live show to the GW McLennan Stage on Sunday. Plum will perform tracks from her latest EP Meanjin which captured hearts, garnered multiple ARIA nominations, and landed two spots in triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2022 with ‘Backseat of my Mind’ and ‘The Brown Snake’. The Gamilaraay woman, musician and creator released her debut album Better in Blak in 2019. The record is a story about culture, heritage, love and pain and captures what it’s like to be a young Aboriginal woman in Australia. Better in Blak became one of the most successful albums of 2019, nominated for 7 Arias and spawning 3 Platinum and one Gold singles. The title track came in the top 10 of the Triple J Hottest 100, the highest result ever for an Indigenous artist at the time, as well as winning the prestigious Vanda and Young “Song of the Year” award.
As for who will be replacing Lewis Capaldi, with news of his cancellation so recent the Splendour team are currently working through options and will have an update as soon as possible.
