REVEALED: Splendour in the Grass 2019 line-up

CHILDISH Gambino, Chance the Rapper, SZA and Foals are some of the big names headlining this year's Splendour in the Grass music festival.

Also playing at the 19th annual event are Aussie hit-makers Tame Impala, Courtney Barnett and Dean Lewis.

Tame Impala front man Kevin Parker told Triple J's breakfast show he was looking forward to following up his Coachella debut, happening later this month, with a show at Splendour.

"We're flying by the seat of our pants now but i think by the time Splendour comes we'll be a well-oiled machine," he said.

Childish Gambino is the musical moniker of actor, singer and comedian Donald Glover, whose hard-hitting This Is America came in at number four in this past year's Hottest 100.

While some fans hoped to see Janelle Monae on the bill, the PYNK singer was noticeably absent from the list of 100 artists.

Today's announcement also teased a 'mystery' Australian act.

Splendour in the Grass plays the North Byron Parklands from July 19 to 21. 

Tickets go on sale at 9am AEST next Thursday, April 11 through Moshtix and 1300 GET TIX (438 849).
