The July festival will also play host to US indie act The Shins, reformed rockers At The Drive-In and retro pop sensation Lana Del Ray.

The full line-up for Splendour In The Grass was announced by Triple J on Thursday morning with the reaction from music fans generally positive on social networking sites.

Other international bands set for the three-day music event include The Kooks, Explosions In The Sky, The Gossip, Miike Snow, Azealia Banks, Band Of Skulls, Mudhoney and Metric.

Among the many Australian acts are Hilltop Hoods, 360, Tame Impala, Wolfmother, Gypsy And The Cat, Last Dinosaurs, DZ Deathrays and Bleeding Knees Club.

Splendour In The Grass is renowned for showcasing bands on the rise, meaning Django Django, Zulu Winter, Howler and Electric Guest are likely to be on many a must-see list.

The festival will also welcome some returning favourites including Spiderbait, Missy Higgins, Shihad and reformed US art rock act Afghan Whigs.

The music and arts event will take place at Belongil Fields where Splendour In The Grass was held from 2001 to 2009.

For the past two years a temporary location in Woodfordia, Queensland hosted the festival.

Tickets go on sale through Moshtix at 9am AEST on April 27 ranging from $135-$350 plus an extra $99 in camping booking fees.
