New Aussie Music Festival Announced, Kimbra & Lana Del Rey To Headline
Missed out on Splendour In The Grass tickets? Thought all the cool bands were bypassing Adelaide this year?
Well think again because this year Adelaide is getting its very own slice of Splendour In The Grass action in the form of a brand new music festival, aptly titled SPIN OFF.
The inaugural SPIN OFF festival will feature exclusive Adelaide appearances by international acts LANA DEL REY (in her debut Australian show!), UK rockers BAND OF SKULLS and Brooklyn-based buzz band FRIENDS.
The festival is rounded out by the hottest acts in Australia right now, including world beating sensation KIMBRA, Bloc Party’s new favourite band LAST DINOSAURS, young punks and all around trouble makers BLEEDING KNEES CLUB, internationally hyped trash-pop duo DZ DEATHRAYS, eternal party starters YACHT CLUB DJ’S and next big things THE RUBENS.
And with tickets priced at only $99, Adelaide music lovers need no longer travel across the country to catch the best Splendour In The Grass has to offer. They can watch it from their very own backyard!
Launched as a joint venture between Splendour co-promoter Paul Piticco and Adelaide company 5/4 Entertainment, SPIN OFF will take place on Saturday July 21st in the Jubilee Pavilion at Wayville Showgrounds.
It’s also potentially the spoiler that derailed plans to hold the On The Brightside festival in Perth this year, a festival that has previously taken a number of the Splendour acts and showcased them in the West.

There’s a hell of a lot at stake when performing at a festival – potentially the biggest crowd of an artist’s career, being pitted against nature’s elements, sound and lighting that could go wrong at any moment. There’s the pressure to blow the act after you off stage, there’s the pressure to live up to hype and show that you are capable of pulling off a show on a massive stage. Mnay acts have come a cropper when trying to do this but many have risen to the occasion; the adrenaline and the massive crowds either overcoming them or proving that they are capable of being one of the best bands in the world. Join us as we count down some of the best festival performances ever. Watch this slideshow »
