These changes to the Splendour In The Grass line-up come after the festival had to source a new headliner for the event after the Yeah Yeah Yeahs announced they were no longer able to perform due to health issues.
The band shared a statement at the time saying “We are so sorry to announce that due to health issues we will be cancelling our upcoming shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Splendour In The Grass,” “The disappointment weighs heavily on us, we apologize for such disappointing news. We’ve been waiting a long time to see you again and we hope to return soon to fulfil our commitments in good health and spirits for you. Much love, YYYs.”
Organisers previously announced that Surfaces, Mako Road and Adrian Eagle were no longer able to make it to the festival, adding Pond and recent The Music cover artist Tasman Keith in their place.
Stepping up and filling the space of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs atop the Splendour In The Grass bill are The Avalanches, who will bring their full live show to the Amphitheatre on Friday.
The Avalanches join Gorillaz, The Strokes, Tyler, The Creator and stacks more at North Byron Parklands with Splendour In The Grass running from July 22-24.
