THE KILLS - FRIDAY AMPHITHEATRE 4:30-5;30PM
With four records under their belts all full of punchy rock tracks. I think there are a lot of electronica music at this years Splendour so if you're in need of some real good rock then you gotta catch The Kills. The London duo are set to put on an epic set !
