Ok, so we know it's only March and the most aniticipated winter festival that is Splendour In The Grass is 4 months away, but it wouldn't be right if there wasn't some SITG line-up speculation being thrown around, right?!

So did Matty Healy just reveal he will be heading Down Under with his band The 1975?! Sort of!

It all started as a normal interview with Smallzy (albeit with a bad phone line), and somehow ended with what can only be described as a promising revelation that The 1975 could in actual fact be playing at Splendour In The Grass this year.

Chatting to Smallzy, Matty Healy said he 'cannot confirm or deny' the rumour that his band will be down under for the festival, however did admit that they will be in Oz at the same time that it is happening.

Coincidence? We think not!

It could all fit in really well for the UK band, who have just released their second album 'I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it' and are also no strangers to the festival having played in 2004. 

So as the rumour mill is now officially in overdrive, we can't wait for the official announcement coming soon!

Fingers crossed our hunch proves to be right!
