Splendour Sideshows Announced!

Penniless students rejoice! If your favourite acts are playing at Splendour and it’s killing you slowly everytime someone flaunts it in your face that they’re going and you can’t afford it… you may still have hope. Start collecting that loose change like it was holy mana sent by the gods, and skip those outside meals for some cheaper homemade fare – because Splendour has begun announcing sideshows!

The list is decent at the moment and only going to get longer as more acts are announced. Check out the offerings below and if someone you wanted to see isn’t on it, start a Facebook campaign or something to let them know how much you want them.
