Did you manage to get Splendour in the Grass tickets this year? Given they sold out in less than two hours, we’d say there’s a reasonable chance that your answer is, fuck no.

But there’s still a chance to be involved in the festival. Tickets went on sale yesterday to the official Brisbane edition of the Splendour in the Grass Pre-Party.

It’s a solid line-up skewed towards the dance floor. Taking over The Triffid in Newstead on Thursday 21 July, the day before the festival, the show includes the gliding pop of Britain’s Years & Years, Norwegian multi-instrumentalist Lido, Sydney bass artist Moonrise Commander and former Yacht Club DJ Twinsy.

It rolls in tandem with the traditional pre-party in Byron Bay itself, the line-up for which is still to be announced. Tickets are on sale now via Secret Sounds.
