For those who missed out on those much-desired Splendour tickets last week (it sold out in 40 minutes), the much-anticipated announcement of sideshows has arrived.
A number of big names announced sideshows in Perth including Two Door Cinema Club, Asgeir, Bonobo, Romare, Lil’ Yachty, Stormzy, Bag Raiders and BANKS (pictured).
Starting off the gigs is BANKS playing at The Astor on Tuesday, July 18, her only pre-Splendour show. Two Door Cinema Club fans are in luck with their first sideshow being at Metro City on Wednesday, July 19 supported by Last Dinosaurs and The Creases, before the band head to Sydney and Melbourne for their remaining two sideshows.
Stormzy will play Metro City on Thursday, July 20 before heading to Byron Bay, while Bag Raiders play Villa Nightclub on the same night. To finish the bills for Perth there’s Asgeir, Bonobo, Romare and Lil’ Yachty who all play post Splendour gigs.
Iceland’s Asgeir promises an intimate show with full band at The Astor on Wednesday, July 26. Bonobo will perform on Tuesday, July 25 at Metro City along with special guest Romare. Lil’ Yachty will come to Metro City on Sunday, July 23.
These big announcements go some of the way to making up for the side shows we’ll be missing out on with Queens of the Stone Age, Sigur Ros, Father John Misty, Haim, Real Estate, Catfish & the Bottlemen, George Ezra, Rag’N’Bone Man, Tove Lo, Maggie Rogers, Oh Wonder, The Lemon Twigs, Bishop Briggs and Lany among those mainly sticking with the east coast. Insert sad face here.
Presale tickets for most sideshows go on sale next Tuesday 11th April at 9AM AEST (7AM Perth time) and more info is available from secretsounds.com/sideshows/splendour.
