Sunday is an odd day for Splendour; given the hectic run-about the first two days gave us, Sunday is a slow burn, and combining that with the tiredness accumulated just means it’s a goddamn slog, and being honest, most of the day is a big blur.

Triple J rewarded dedicated costume-wearing festival-goers by hosting a pre-party at The Great Northern in Byron Bay.
As part of a Splendour Sideshow triple treat. Friends, Howler and Zulu Winter played the Oxford Art Factory and Pete Dovgan was there to capture the action
With Splendour sideshows set to hit the country TOMORROW with the Spin Off Festival in Adelaide, we thought we'd take a look at 5 sideshows we don't reckon you should miss....
There’s been a lot of build up and hype surrounding Zulu Winter over the past year or so. The London act, soon to make their debut Australian appearance at Splendour in the Grass, have released their debut record Language to prepare us all and after a few playbacks, I’m just cut that I won’t be seeing them perform on their first tour over.
With the 2012 Splendour in the Grass festival boasting some sweet international and local talent once again, the usual round of sideshows have been announced today. If you missed out on tickets to the festival itself, you can score yourself some tickets to any of the following shows. Sales commence from 9am, May 4.

WEDNESDAY JULY 25 – THE HI-FI, MELBOURNE
In just a few hours we'll be finally hearing the 2012 Splendour in the Grass lineup. But so far we do know ONE artist who's making the journey: UK's Zulu Winter. From their forthcoming record Language, which is due out locally on May 11th, here's the latest single "Key To My Heart". Let's see what the contributors think of this one!
Hitting Australia for Splendour in the Grass in July, we caught up with Zulu Winter while they were in Texas to chat about the impending Australian tour, their experiences in Texas, what we can expect from their debut record (due out in Australia on May 11th), what it meant to sign to Dew Process and much much more!!

UK'S Zulu Winter will be playing Sydney and Melbourne.
The new music video from Zulu Winter - "We Should Be Swimming" - has recently dropped and we have it for you here on the AU! The UK group have been making huge waves of late, supporting Friendly Fires in the UK recently, and they will soon head to the States for a trip that includes SXSW. Here's hoping we catch up with them over there. Until then... here's the clip!
