Time to face the music: 15 must-see acts at Splendour 2015

YOUR annual seaside sonic sabbatical is back and ready to raise the bar even higher.

This weekend, Splendour in the Grass returns to North Byron Parklands with three monumental days of music across Splendour's four main stages.

That's right, four stages.

In 2015 Splendour's Amphitheatre, Mix Up, GW McLennan and Tiny Dancer stages will bring you more than 100 acts touring the planet right now.

At some point though you'll need a break from stage hopping, and when you do, flex your head at the incredibly topical and intellectual Splendour Forum presented by The Guardian, where you'll find an impressive list of clever and witty guests discussing myriad topics and contemplating the big philosophical questions.

Life is all about the yin and the yang, especially in Byron, so each night we throw out the festival academics and transform the Forum space into Splendour Late Night Comedy Club, where you'll find the hottest comedians Australia has to offer.

Here are 15 acts you won't want to miss at this year's festival. Follow the links to read more of each act and see a video.
