‘Splendour In The Grass is CANCELLED’: Fans gutted as Kylie Minogue-headlined festival becomes latest music event to get the axe

The iconic Splendor in the Grass music festival has been canceled for 2024, industry sources say.

Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue, 55, was due to headline the three-day music festival held in the North Byron Parklands from July 19 to 21.

Other popular artists scheduled to perform included G Flip, Arcade Fire and Future.

It is not yet clear why the event was canceled, although the 2023 festival recorded a 30% drop in ticket sales.

At the height of its fame, the festival attracted 50,000 partygoers over three days.

However, this year’s festival line-up was criticized for its lack of renowned international acts, with US rapper Future, 40, the only global star set to perform.

In the past, SITG has had a host of global superstars perform at its concerts, including Kendrick Lamar, Tyler the Creator, Flume, Queens of the Stone Age and The Smashing Pumpkins.

In addition, the festival has attracted some of Australia’s most renowned artists, including Powderfinger, Missy Higgins and Hilltop Hoods.

However, reception to the 2024 lineup was lukewarm, with fans wondering why they couldn’t attract a more well-known lineup.

Earlier this month, SITG 2024’s lineup sparked backlash for its lack of prominent international acts.

However, these Australian talents weren’t enough to impress many fans, as online critics pointed out that there is only one major international artist on the lineup: Future.

‘Absolutely nonsense. It’s one of the few festivals in Australia big enough to offer a semi-exciting and decent line-up, and the biggest in terms of overseas headliners is Future,” one frustrated fan commented.

“Australian festivals suck. Why is Future the only good international act?’ another agreed, with someone else adding: ‘Australian music festivals are so boring omg.’

Festival organizers have not yet commented publicly.
