well, if AtDI are gonna be there... and I live 20 min away from Byron Bay...
yep. See you at Splendour bitches.
Who are the Pumpkins? Are they like System or Streetlight?
Digging: Matt Aspinwall/The Brave Little Abacus - Split
Hope they play some stuff off of Gish
where is this festival
Byron Bay, Australia.
grats to band for being
Digging: Deathspell Omega - Paracletus
Splendour should have stayed at Woodford but this is amazing news. Shits all over last year's lineup already
Still gonna cost a fortune and I have no money to get there.
I hope they do sideshows but they never do. Splendour will be difficult for me to attend I think.
It's so expensive, especially if you have to travel a long way (like me). That said, I wish I'd seen the Pixies a couple of years back and am tempted by this so far... Throw in two or three more good bands and I'm there
Splendour usually has really good lineups.
I'm unsure that this IS ACTUALLY "CONFIRMED".
^ if that was a pun I'm gonna have to kill you
Digging: Vektor - Terminal Redux
any word on the cure rumours?
they came out last year and played their first three albums at the opera house, i stupidly did not attend.
that picture of the pumpkins is a bit outdated
if all these people are actually playing, the only one that surprises me at all is the pumpkins. the rest have been rumoured all year, and make sense to be playing.
Digging: Banks - The Altar
updated picture would be corgan in glitter paint with a couple session players paid out of pocket behind him
No pun Thomas. I'd call it more a report or rumor than a confirmation.
Good line up
If I can't go I want EITS, Jack White, Mudhoney and ATDI sideshows
Well I'm pretty certain Jack White and AtDI would have signed contracts preventing them from playing sideshows

Same with EITS. Might just try and get a Friday ticket. Seems like the best day.
I don't think you can do day tickets with Splendour. It's all or nothing.
I just checked the site and you can, but it's a $142. Might give it a pass.
