Sam Smith, Childish Gambino & More Added To Splendour 2014

Sam-Smith-SNL

The Splendour In The Grass lineup for this year has received a massive bolstering, with three massive acts joining the already chaotic set of artists at the festival.

Danny Glover aka Childish Gambino aka Troy Barnes will be bringing his energetic and lyrically charged hip hop to Byron this year, alongside Splendour champions The Hilltop Hoods – a move that will certainly see all the hip hop nuts going bonkers for the next few months.

But excitingly, soul-inspired groover Sam Smith – made famous by that track Disclosure track – is one of the biggest wins. He joins the festival after a massive 2013 hat aw him top the U.K. singles charts and his debut record received critical acclaim.

The three artists join a whopping 80+ acts including Outkast, Lily Allen, Two Door Cinema Club, Foster The People and Darkside.

In case these additions have tipped the scales of the “should I – shouldn’t I” debate, tickets go on sale 9am Friday May 2 through moshtix.com.au.
