Liam Gallagher, Duke Dumont, Jack Harlow, Oliver Tree and Mura Masa all have Perth dates added to their itineraries (in addition to the expected shows in Sydney and Melbourne), while Jungle will treat their third show to punters in Hobart instead. Aitch and Sofi Tukker will join the first five of those acts in playing Sydney, Melbourne and Perth gigs, but will also take to the stage in Adelaide.

Brisbane’s sole inclusion in the fray comes courtesy of Yungblud, who’s primed to play the Fortitude Music Hall on Sunday July 23. He’ll also play sets in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

The 47 new gigs join previously announce sideshows from Splendour ’22 headliners The Strokes (playing two shows in Sydney and one in Melbourne, all sold out) and Gorillaz (playing Melbourne and Sydney). All but four of the shows – Oliver Tree’s in Perth and Sydney, Joy Crookes’ in Melbourne and Duke Dumont’s in Sydney – will down across the last 10 days in July, tying in with Splendour’s run from Friday July 22 to Sunday 24.

Tickets for all of the new gigs go on sale at 9am local time on Monday February 14, with a presale kicking off at the same time this Friday (February 11). More details on tickets can be found via Secret Sounds.

Splendour In The Grass will make its return to the North Byron Parklands this July, celebrating the festival’s 20th edition. Initially slated to run across the same three dates in 2020, the festival was postponed four times before its current schedule was locked in. Tyler, The Creator rounds out its trio of headliners, with a total of 105 acts spread across the weekend.

Today (February 8) also came with a string of headline tours announced by acts set to perform at the festival, but don’t formally count as its own sideshows. Tai Verdes, Dayglow and Starcrawler will all play shows in Sydney and Melbourne, while Texan duo Surfaces have slated shows in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide (as well as one in Auckland for those in New Zealand).
