Alleged Splendour in the Grass 2011 line-up posted on fan forum
Who's saying what
Does a dodgy camera phone photo reveal this year's Splendour in the Grass line-up?
UPDATE: In the wake of online speculation following this article's appearance, Splendour organisers have issued a statement to Triple J: "Aside from the alleged artwork looking terrible at this point in time those speculating on (the) line up have got it way wrong."
Member "Sneaker1010", of Splendour in the Grass affiliated website Fasterlouder.com.au, posted a missive on Tuesday via the "Unofiicial Splendour Forum", alongside a blurry image purporting to be this year's Splendour in the Grass line-up.
in my friend's office, who is in same building as designers of this year's splendour artwork + website. i have seen the 80% lineup confirmed and tried to take a picture.
i will def get in trouble for this: eek:
The blurry image holds a dizzying array of band names, most notably Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Kanye West, The Cure, Sonic Youth, Weezer and The Avalanches. A fanboy's wet dream or the worst camera phone in history?
A list of the more legible band names in the image:
Foster The People
The Black Keys
Itch-e and Scratch-e
Tim and Jean
The Living End
Birds of Tokyo
The Honey Month
Ball Park Music
The Naked & Famous
Esben & The Witch
+ more to be announced
Cons: A blurry image apropos of nothing on a fan forum; wild speculation; disappointment, tears and loss of integrity.
Pros: TheVine having heard whispers about Arcade Fire and Splendour; the alleged forger paying close attention to Village Sounds/Secret Service bands; frantic excitement for Splendour in the Grass 2011.
(Thanks to reader Tim for the tip).
PS: Also a possibility:
