Splendour in the Grass has received news that Yeah Yeah Yeahs are no longer able to make it to Australia for Splendour in the Grass 2022. The band has sent us this message to share with Splendour ticket holders…

“We are so sorry to announce that due to health issues we will be cancelling our upcoming shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Splendour in the Grass. The disappointment weighs heavily on us, we apologize for such disappointing news. We’ve been waiting a long time to see you again and we hope to return soon to fulfill our commitments in good health and spirits for you. Much love, YYYs”

Splendour wishes Karen, Nick and Brian a speedy recovery. We hope to see them back in Australia soon. For further information on Yeah Yeah Yeahs headline tour dates please visit secretsounds.com

In light of this news, we are beyond stoked to announce that The Avalanches are set to raise the vibrations in the Splendour Amphitheatre with their full LIVE show on Friday 22 July!

There are few living musicians as influential and wholly original as world renowned recording artists, producers and DJs, The Avalanches. Fresh off incendiary performances at Coachella and Glastonbury, and a sold-out UK and European tour this will be their first festival performance on home soil since 2018, and the first since the release of their highly acclaimed third album ‘We Will Always Love You’ in December 2020.

“We’re so happy to be coming home to play Splendour again and can’t wait to see you all there. We’re sending love to the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s x” said The Avalanches.

The Avalanches debut album ‘Since I Left You’, released in 2000, laid the blueprint for the future of sample-based music in the 21st century. Similarly, their follow up album, 2016’s ‘Wildflower’, sits on a patchwork of samples earning the band further critical acclaim across the globe. It’s not only through their studio albums that The Avalanches have made a mark on the musical landscape. They have released cult famous mixtapes that have become heavily coveted collectibles. As DJs, they have performed at their own infamous monthly club night ‘Brains’, to the main stage at some of the biggest festivals in the world including Fuji Rock, Primavera Sound, Glastonbury, Coachella, Creamfields and of course Splendour in the Grass. Big believers in the life changing power of music, wherever they’re playing and whatever they’re spinning, The Avalanches’ sets are always joyous, raucous and celebratory affairs. Prepare to join in the joy at Splendour in the Grass 2022!
