Gambino, SZA, Foals to play Perth and other Splendour sideshow news

Plus, sideshows by Catfish and the Bottlemen, Friendly Fires, Dave and more.

After dropping a lineup topped by international hip-hop heavyweights and local legends alike, Splendour In The Grass can once again boast a same-day sell-out, moving all their tickets in a couple of hours – a little slower than usual, but considering a dire market for Australian festivals and increased capacity, still notable.

Now, comes the sideshows. After the first handful arrived on Friday, the full list is now in our hands and to be frank; it's a monster mix. There's also a lot of representation on the west coast, a great sign considering that last year, the only Splendour sideshow to drop into Perth was a $180 Kendrick Lamar arena show (which, to be frank, was bloody sick). Gambino, SZA, Foals, Catfish and FIDLAR will all play Perth this year, while the full list also includes acts including James Blake, Russ, Dave, The Lumineers and more. Dive into it all below, and see you there:
