ICONIC Australian music festival Splendour In The Grass has locked in the majority of the line-up for its rescheduled 2020 edition.
It was announced earlier this week that the North Byron Parklands festival would be unable to continue as planned on July 24 to 26 due to the uncertainly surrounding the global coronavirus pandemic.
Headline acts The Strokes, Tyler The Creator and Flume have confirmed they will perform at the first Splendour to be held during spring on October 23 to 25.
"Flume, The Strokes and Tyler, The Creator have all confirmed their attendance for these new dates alongside most others," organisers said.
"As this is moving quickly and we work through the detail there will be some programming changes but we are confident that rescheduling to October - a one off spring edition of Splendour - is the best way to ensure we present the Splendour experience you all know and love."
All tickets are transferable to the new dates. Full refunds are also available through Moshtix for ticket-holders unable to attend in October.
Splendour In The Grass will return to its regular July scheduling in 2021.
ALANIS TO RETURN
