Actor, writer, comedian and rapper Childish Gambino, festival favourites The Hilltop Hoods and soul-inspired artist Sam Smith have joined the lineup for this year’s Splendour In The Grass.
“We didn’t get these three confirmed in time for the lineup announce last Wednesday – too many cocktails over Easter – so we have a special edition announce for you! Hilltop Hoods, Childish Gambino and Sam Smith will be playing Splendour 2014. Better late than never!” said co-producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco in a press release.
SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS 2014 WELCOMES:
To say Donald Glover is a man of many talents is one hell of an understatement. With a batch of albums and mixtapes under the belt of his shorts, it’s wit and intellect that sets this actor, writer, comedian and rapper apart from the rest.
Indeed, you could say he has the Midas touch and we can’t wait to see Childish Gambino paint the stage gold at Splendour!
With three consecutive #1 albums including the biggest selling Australian Hip Hop album of all time, a swag of ARIAs and countless other accolades Hilltop Hoods have not only risen to the top of Australian Hip Hop, but have cemented themselves a place at the very forefront of the Australian Music Industry.
Numerous sold-out national tours and standout festival appearances has seen Hilltop Hoods singled out as one of Australia’s most vibrant live acts by press, industry insiders and fans alike.
Best known for his soaring vocal contribution to Disclosure’s 2012 hit ‘Latch’, Sam Smith is an artist garnering a lot of attention and deservedly so. Following the Disclosure hit the soul-inspired artist was again at the top of the U.K. singles chart in February with Money on My Mind. His debut full-length, In the Lonely Hour, has been critically-lauded and he joins Splendour after a massive European tour.
