With everyone’s favourite Aussie festival now on hold until 23 – 25 July 2021, Splendour HQ has been hard at work to lock in the lineup for the new dates and today we’re excited to announce three of the headliners for Splendour in the Grass 2021!
In good news, we can confirm that both Tyler, The Creator and The Strokes have signed up for the new dates. Unfortunately, Flume isn’t available for July 2021, but silver linings…
Splendour is beyond excited to announce that legendary virtual British band Gorillaz will be heading to Byron to Rock The House for their 20th Anniversary event.
FRIDAY 23 JULY – GORILLAZ
SATURDAY 24 JULY – THE STROKES
SUNDAY 25 JULY – TYLER, THE CREATOR
Virtual British band Gorillaz is singer 2D, bassist Murdoc Niccals, guitarist Noodle and drummer Russel Hobbs. Created by musician Damon Albarn (Blur) and artist Jamie Hewlett (Tank Girl), their acclaimed eponymous debut album was released in 2001.
The BRIT and Grammy Award winning band’s subsequent albums are Demon Days (2005), Plastic Beach (2010), The Fall (2011), Humanz (2017) and The Now Now (2018), producing a string of instantly recognisable tracks including Feel Good Inc, Clint Eastwood, DARE and Dirty Harry to name a few.
A truly global phenomenon, Gorillaz have achieved success in entirely ground-breaking ways, topping charts and touring the world from San Diego to Syria, winning numerous awards including the coveted Jim Henson Creativity Honor. They are even recognised by The Guinness Book Of World Records as the planet’s Most Successful Virtual Act.
This year, Gorillaz is once again disrupting the paradigm and breaking convention in their round the back door fashion with Song Machine, the newest concept from one of the most inventive bands around. Song Machine – the cartoon music contraption which spits out brand new episodes fresh from the studio, as and when they happen – sees Gorillaz joined by an exciting and ever-evolving roster of collaborators which so far includes Fatoumata Diarwawa, Georgia, Octavian Peter Hook, ScHoolboy Q, Slaves, slowthai and Tony Allen. All captured live in Kong Studios, with more episodes to come! The cameras are rolling 24/7, the fourth wall is broken, the kettle is on, the chaos is real, the door is open… What’s coming next? Stay tuned.
