Let's face it, there's more than 5 top picks at this years Splendour, but we're keeping it simple and giving a taste of our favourites to hit up this weekend (and at non conflicting times!)
8.30pm Friday 20th GW McLennan Tent
Black Flag, punk rock legend, Henry Rollins, while not releasing anything of late, has certainly more than enough material to pull from his decades in the industry, not to mention the potential for a rant or two. Catch this legend on the first night of the Splendour Weekend.
DUNE RATES + FRIENDS
10pm Friday 20th GW McLennan Tent
An absolute festival staple, Dune Rats are where it's at for what will probably be the biggest party to kick off the first night. Plus with the addition of mysterious "friends" helping to smash through their set, you know it's going to be one hell of a good time.
2.45pm Saturday 21st Mix Up Stage
Come Saturday afternoon, chill out a little and enjoy the vibes of Superorganism. London-based, eight person collective of international musicians and pop culture junkies who formed just over a year ago, will take you on an adventure "Feeling like a boss, and Staring at the stars".
AMYL & THE SNIFFERS
12pm Sunday 22nd AmpitheatreKick off the final day with the best looking mullets, some good pub rock and an electric stage presence from bad ass frontwoman Amy Louise. Fairly new to the scene, the Melbourne band channel Australian 70's rock and have all the fun, join them Sunday if you're still alive by that point.
10.45pm Sunday 22nd Ampitheatre
End the weekend with none other than Kendrick Lamar. Making a massive mark in the industry, Kendrick is one of the most critically acclaimed and successful rappers of our time. If you haven't yet been to a performance, this is your chance!
For proven techniques on how to pick up this weekend, watch the film clip for 'Tulips' below, by Tigerilla featuring Gill Bates. Also worth it because the fact is, this is one hell of a tune.
