    'Coldplay at Splendour 2011' rumour is gathering steam

    festival.jpgAlready at least three bands have revealed that they’ll be on the Splendour in the Grass lineup in 2011 – The Kills, The Vaccines, and Cornershop – and now as we countdown the days to the official announcement the rumour mill has inevitably gone into overdrive, multiple online sources are reporting today.


    Fuji Rock will be held from Friday 29th July to Sunday 31st July, and Splendour will be on during the same weekend, held at south-east Queensland’s Woodfordia site. Coldplay will play T in the Park festival in Scotland on July 9th which would give them a 3 week break ahead of Fuji and Splendour. More on the as-yet-unconfirmed Splendour date is at the Coldplay Live forum now [thanks njshaw]

    Last year Fuji Rock and Australia's Splendour in the Grass festivals shared a fleet of acts, so the announcement of the Fuji lineup provides excellent fodder for the favourite late Summer game: Guess The Splendour Lineup. Last year the Splendour in the Grass lineup was released on the 15th of April and as we approach that date an article has been posted on the SPA website claiming that Pulp has been “confirmed” to headline Splendour, with Elbow, Noah and the Whale and Coldplay on a very English festival lineup.


    Coldplay’s place on the festival lineup has been a persistent rumour ever since the 2003 Splendour visitors were announced on the Fuji Rock lineup back in March. Earlier this week Herald Sun music journalist Nui Te Koha also declared on Twitter that “Coldplay [are] coming for splendour in the grass. no side shows” so the rumour certainly seems to be gathering steam.
