Byron Council is aiming to make 10 per cent of local housing genuinely affordable within the space of a decade, under a brave and ambitious plan to implement a Community Land Trust (CLT) model across the Shire.  

Splendour ‘hump day’ will host another incredible lineup of great acts with one of the major highlights being City and Colour, also known as Dallas Green (get it? city/colour) – the Juno-award-winning singer/guitarist for the Canadian post-hardcore band Alexisonfire.

Green began recording as City and Colour in 2005 and has experienced huge success both on the charts and the road. Released in 2013 his fourth LP, The Hurry and The Harm, went straight to Number 1 in Canada and all three previous studio albums have achieved platinum status there too, while Little Hell is also now gold in Australia. Little Hell also debuted at Number 1 on Canada’s Top 200 Chart, Number 28 in the US, Number 2 in Australia and Top 40 in the UK.

Known for delivering on stage, every one of City and Colour’s 2011 and 2012 shows sold out, including the famed Royal Albert Hall, a two-night stay at the Roundhouse in London and New York’s Terminal 5. He’s just played to crowds at Coachella and he’s coming our way for Splendour!
