After five long years of hibernation, Spin Off Festival is back! On Friday July 20, the cream of the Splendour In The Grass line-up – as well as a few acts exclusive to Spin Off – will be heading to the Wayville Showgrounds in Adelaide for a concentrated super dose of sideshow revelry.
We’ll have to keep a lid on who’s playing for now, but with previous Spin Off line-ups including the likes of Lana Del Rey, Chet Faker, Dune Rats and Passion Pit, rest assured the 2018 edition is coming back bigger and better than ever. The big reveal is happening on Monday April 23, so keep your eyes peeled.
For now, mark Friday July 20 in your diaries. With Splendour now 100% sold out, Spin Off is now the best sideshow you could possibly imagine, because it’s more like 10+ sideshows all wrapped into one!
Spin Off began life as a way to bring the best acts playing Splendour In The Grass to Adelaide for a big old side serving of the main event. In 2012 the festival launched with a line-up boasting indie goddess Lana Del Rey atop the bill. In 2013 the festival moved venues and returned with up-and-comers at the time including Dune Rats, Chet Faker and The Jungle Giants. After a lengthy hiatus due to the logistical nightmare of booking artists around their Splendour commitments and sideshows, the stars have aligned in 2018 as Spin Off returns to its original home at the Showgrounds on Friday July 20.
