Spill the beans.
2017’s Republic of ‘Grass is almost a Concrete Reality.
We’re unfolding this year’s epic lineup in two phases – with this, the first announcement, merely a little teaser for what’s to come. We’re as impatient as you all are to get this all out there, so bear with us as we put the final finishing touches on this year’s towering musical goodness. You’re going to love it.

The full lineup in all its four-dimensional glory is coming soon soon soon, but here’s a small (very small) list of acts coming to the ‘Grass this year. Expect a lot more lineup announcements next week!
