Jack White will headline the Splendour in the Grass festival this July, which has moved back to Byron Bay for the first time in three years.

Bloc Party and At The Drive-In will play their only Australian shows at the annual festival which runs from July 27-29.

Smashing Pumpkins, The Shins, Hilltop Hoods, The Kooks, Wolfmother, Lana Del Ray, Tame Impala, Missy Higgins and Angus Stone are among those also performing.

Splendour has also released this novel promo video featuring Byron Bay’s ‘viral’ star Dancing Tommy.

The music and arts event will take place at Belongil Fields where Splendour In The Grass was held from 2001 to 2009.

For the past two years Splendour was relocated to Woodfordia, the Queensland site of the annual Woodford Folk Festival, while awaiting a planning permission to move to its proposed permanent North Byron Parklands site.

The Planning Assessment Commission is due to make a determination on the application imminently.

Tickets go on sale through Moshtix at 9am AEST on April 27 and range from $135-$350 plus $99 in camping and

booking fees.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Aged Care Fail

Our aged care system is broken. We didn’t need a Royal Commission to tell us that many of our old people have been abused by the system that is supposed to care for them. But now we have hard evidence that we are failing our elders. Some of the data that has been released is shocking. One in five residents have experienced sexual or physical abuse.
