Get ready to experience a weekend of musical magic this July when Splendour in the Grass returns for their 21st edition, and they have just let us in on a little secret. That’s right, folks; we can share the exciting news that Lizzo is coming to Australia this winter to headline Splendour for 2023.
The 4x Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, rapper and flautist has been shaking up the music industry since the release of her platinum album Cuz I Love You in 2019. With hits like Juice, Good as Hell and the history-making Truth Hurts (which became the longest-running #1 by a solo female rap artist ever), Lizzo has proven time and time again that she’s a force to be reckoned with.
Now, she’s bringing her biggest and boldest revolution yet to North Byron Parklands for Splendour in the Grass. Her highly anticipated second full-length offering, Special, is bursting with chunky disco-funk beats that are designed to make you move, and her spirited, charismatic anthems are sure to be some of the most unforgettable moments of the festival.
Lizzo is one of the most exciting and innovative artists in the game right now. She’s been named Entertainer of the Year by both TIME and Entertainment Weekly, and she’s lit up stages at some of the biggest award shows and events in the world. And now, she’s coming to Byron Bay to light up Splendour in the Grass like never before.
So mark your calendars for Friday, July 21 to Sunday, July 23, and get ready to experience the musical magic of Splendour in the Grass with Lizzo leading the charge. Trust us, this is one festival you won’t want to miss!
Organisers have said, “Joining Lizzo will be over 100 of the world’s most provocative and prolific musicians and DJs, alongside a crew of celebrated homegrown talent. Sit tight and stay tuned for the rest of the lineup, which is coming very soon!”
