EDM All Day

5 Splendour sideshows you can’t miss!

Do you remember that feeling you’d get as a kid when you’d stumble across a petrol station or news agency with a sweet Pick ‘N’ Mix collection of lollies? Luckily for those who missed out on tickets to the sold out Splendour in the Grass (or are looking to double dip on their favourite acts), there’s a generous serving of sideshows being dished out ?

Touring company Secret Sounds have got you covered with an eclectic array of international acts playing shows across Australia. We could go through a list of all of them, but let’s just talk about the electronic ones which you guys will appreciate knowing about the most.

The list include the human equivalent of a peaceful song bird, James Blake. Soul-filled electronic duo Maribou State. The long awaited Australian return (6 years too long) of the always dancing dudes, Friendly Fires. The smooth, crooning, downtempo melodies of Tycho and finally, the now labelled sophisti-pop duo carving up forward think R&B, Honne!

For convenience sake, we’ve included the relevant ticket information for each performance so you can jump straight to the check out if you’re vibing any of the shows?
