Set your alarms.

After unveiling an absolute bumper lineup and exhausting all ticket sales within hours, Splendour In The Grass has announced its first run of sideshows for 2019.

UK indie-rock heroes Foals have locked in headline dates in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, in support of last month’s Everything Not Saved Will Be Forgotten Pt. 1 LP. LA-based psychedelic unit Warpaint has also jumped on for support duties.

Electronic wunderkind James Blake has also announced a series of intimate sideshows at Melbourne’s Forum and Sydney’s Enmore Theatre, offering fans a unique opportunity to see the typically arena-bound artist in a smaller venue.

Catfish And The Bottlemen are also locked in for headline shows in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney, while iconic UK hip-hop artist The Streets is also set to play shows on both sides of Australia. Melbourne punters will also receive a DJ set from The Avalanches as support for the evening.

Elsewhere, FIDLAR, Little Simz, Tycho, Maribou State, Honne, The Nude Party, Sam Fender, Jacob Banks, Phony People and The Midnight have also been announced to be performing a string of sideshows for the festival.
