Missed out on Splendour tickets? Don’t worry, Splendour’s Official Sideshows of 2022 are finally here and set to roll into venues around the country this July!
This monster pile of tours is the biggest Official Sideshow announcement in the history of Splendour, so be sure to hold your hat as you get your head around this one…
Born in Ireland, Biig Piig spent her formative years in Spain, before moving to London. Despite speaking English at home, she initially only knew how to read and write in Spanish. This ability to adjust is a driving force for Biig Piig. While she’s cemented her aesthetic with her sleepy, jazz-tinged bops, she is inherently a creature of adaptation, shapeshifting to fit the environment around her. Her instantly identifiable, bilingual voice, blends a suitably global mix of influences (hip-hop, R&B, dance music, stripped-back soul) into confessional, genre-fluid modern pop.
With special guest Yb.
Soaring out of Meanjin/Brisbane and straight into our hearts is rising indie icon Yb. His latest drop was Coffee Shop, the extra smooth summer release that overflows with syrupy, golden goodness. Collaborating with Winston Surfshirt and Fossa Beats on production, Yb’s vocals float through warm balanced layers and orchestral undertones, with smiling hints of brass and sax.
Signing off from a momentous year, 2021 saw Yb. spotlighted as a triple j Unearthed feature artist and applauded with glowing reviews and triple j airplay for his single DANCE WITH ME TODAY. Previous singles Don’t Crash and Waiting have got the whole industry talking, whilst Stay (with nearly 2 million streams) remains a breakout classic.
Presale available from 9am local, Friday 11 February. General onsale 9am local, Monday 14th February
