Three north coast musical acts have been chosen via a competition to play at Splendour in the Grass. They were selected from a list of hundreds via the Triple J Unearthed website.

JJJ announced that Ballina hip-hop artist MC Splinta, Byron Bay rock/funk four-piece Lifeline and Byron rock duo Wilde Childe will all be given the opportunity to play on the big Splendour stages in a few weeks’ time at Belongil Fields.

The boys from Lifeline (pictured) were thrilled at the news and are amazed that they were chosen from such a long list of talented locals, especially as they are all only 15 years old. Playing a spot at such a well-known festival is an amazing opportunity for all the acts and they can’t wait to play their tunes on the Splendour stages.
