Sky Ferreira announces a one-off show, almost certain to be back for Splendour

Sky Ferreira will play a one-off show in Sydney next month, which seems almost certain to build hype for a return to play at Splendour in the Grass later in the year.

The one date visit promoted by Splendour organisers Secret Sounds will see Sky Ferreira playing songs from her debut album Night Time, My Time at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on Tuesday, March 18.

Of course, a visit in March could still pave the way for a return for the festival in Byron Bay. Splendour promoted a hype building tour for Foster the People in 2011, and were so successful deploying the tactic again with Lana Del Rey that she didn’t even have to show up for her tiny club dates to create a pre-Splendour buzz. Early last year dubstep crooner and Mercury Prize winner James Blake played a two-date Australian “tour” in March before returning for Splendour just a few months later.

Other artists on the ever-growing Splendour rumour mill include Outkast, James Vincent McMorrow, Max Frost, Bombay Bicycle Club, SBTRKT,and recent Laneway festival visitors Parquet Courts.
