Good news and bad today, as Splendour in the Grass announces all of the set times for this year’s festival, along with the sad news of George Ezra no longer being able to make it to the party.
“Due to unforeseen scheduling issues, George Ezra is unable to make it to Australia this month,” organisers have told fans. “He sends his apologies to all his Australian fans.
“I’m gutted to have to do this at such short notice and apologise to all of you that have bought tickets and were looking forward to it,” George Ezra added in a statement. “This was a shit decision to have to make, I hope you understand and you’ll still be there when we come back.”
Now, Peking Duk will be taking his intended slot at the Amphitheatre stage, meaning “more bangers on Friday” as the festival puts it. The other good news is that both LCD Soundsystem and Sigur Rós will now be playing extended sets on the Sunday to make up for Peking Duk’s shift, so it’s a win-win really.
The festival notes that anyone who really had their hearts set on George can still sell their tickets through the official Resale Facility before 5.00pm on Wednesday July 12, while fans with tickets to the Melbourne and Sydney sideshows will be contacted by promoter Secret Sounds regarding rescheduled sideshows.
As for the rest of the set times, you can check ’em out now by downloading the official Splendour app, which will allow you to plot your course through a minefield of clashes with ease, and is now available on both Android and iPhone.
