Is this the greatest line up to grace our fair country, or is this just some jerk with photoshopping skillz trying to make us cry? I’m kind of going to have to side with the latter.
The camera phone picture of the alleged Splendour 2011 line up was posted by user Sneaker1010 on FasterLouder’s Unofficial Splendour In The Grass forum.

“in my friend’s office, who is in same building as designers of this year’s splendour artwork + website. i have seen the 80% lineup confirmed and tried to take a picture.

For those who can’t read good, Splendour 2011 “Line Up”:
Foster The People
The Black Keys
Itch-e and Scratch-e
Tim and Jean
The Living End
Birds of Tokyo
The Honey Month
Ball Park Music
The Naked & Famous
Esben & The Witch
+ more to be announced
Yeah – A little ridiculous. But if it’s true it’s amazing. There is some merit to this though, as there is a heavy quota of Dew Process bands on the bill, like Delta Spirit, Grouplove & Freelance Whales, all who one would expect to populate the actual line up. I don’t know, Paul Simon and Kanye on the same bill? I’d say someone is on crack – Or it’s mock text.
What do you think?
Addition: Yep; it’s a fake. Promoters have denied the poster’s better-than-an-orgasm claims and even poked fun at its less than awesome design.
Promoters said in a statment:
“Aside from the alleged artwork looking terrible, at this point in time those speculating on line up have got it way wrong.”
