Childish Gambino plays Splendour In The Grass sideshows in Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney July 2019.
The Splendour In The Grass carnival rolls on with the addition of official sideshows for this year's festival headliners Childish Gambino and SZA, alongside fellow Atlanta hip hop sensation Russ.
Splendour may have sold out but that doesn't mean you have to miss out on seeing some of the festival's top-billed performers live on stage.
Multi-talented recording artist and innovator Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino returns to our shores after the shock cancellation of his sold-out national tour last year.
Claiming ‘Record of the Year’, ‘Song of the Year’, ‘Best Music Video’ and ‘Best Rap/Sung Performance’ at the 2019 Grammys for his pointedly powerful hit single 'This Is America', Childish Gambino has left fans hungrily awaiting new music. Teasing his highly anticipated fourth record with a 'Summer Pack' of singles, the breezy tracks 'Summertime Magic' and 'Feels Like Summer' have been left to tide fans over in the meantime.

Influenced by avant-garde jazz, alternative rock, and hardcore rap, American singer/songwriter SZA has become one of the most seminal voices in modern R&B, a genre-blurring force akin to contemporaries such as Jorja Smith, Solange, H.E.R., Kehlani and Brent Faiyaz.
American rapper Russ notably emerged onto the music scene between 2011 and 2014 when he released an impressive 11 mixtapes. What followed was 87 consecutive weekly singles released to his Soundcloud account – where a mass audience discovered his sound and vibe as an artist.
Now, having firmly cemented his place as a global hip hop heavyweight, Russ returns for two huge headline shows alongside a coveted spot on the 2019 Splendour In The Grass line-up.
