Richard Ashcroft’s Splendour leak

CLICK HERE FOR THE OFFICIAL 2010 SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS LINE-UP!

Though the official Splendour line up is still to be officially confirmed we can add another name to our growing list of acts for the festival – former Verve leadman Richard Ashcroft and his new band The United Nations of Sound.

The leak has come via Ashcroft’s official website where the news section reveals that “Richard Ashcroft’s new band RPA & The United Nations of Sound have confirmed their first live dates [including] the bills of Summer Sonic Festival in Japan and Splendour in The Grass Festival in Australia.”

The bands debut album, intriguingly produced by Chicago hip-hop pioneer No I.D, is due for release in early June.

Goldfrapp’s tour drummer has also accidentally leaked that the pop act will be gracing the Splendour lineup, while a Pixies facebook update suggests they’ll also be in attendance.

And of course there are those suspiciously-close-to-Splendour tours from Mumford and Sons, 30 Seconds to Mars, The Temper Trap and The Strokes.

Looks like the Splendour bill is shaping up rather nicely.
