One of the most acclaimed rappers of our time, Kendrick Lamar is touring Australia in support of his fourth album DAMN. And will headline the sold-out Splendour in the Grass festival in Byron Bay.

Having recently taken the DAMN. tour across the UK and Europe, set lists were built from Kendrick Lamar’s multi-Platinum selling catalogue, including good kid, m.A.A.d city (2012) – featuring ‘Swimming Pools (Drank)’, and ‘Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe’ – To Pimp A Butterfly (2015) – featuring ‘King Kunta’, ‘Alright’, ‘i’ – and compilation album untitled unmastered.

Kendrick Lamar’s fourth studio album DAMN. solidified his standing as one of the world’s greatest artists. Featuring the huge singles ‘Loyalty’ (feat. Rihanna), ‘Love’ (feat. Zacari) and ‘Humble’ – which took out the #1 spot on triple j’s Hottest 100 – Pitchfork called DAMN. “a widescreen masterpiece of rap”, with The Guardian saying it’s “brilliant, sharp-edged storytelling from an artist at the top of his game,” awarding it 5 stars. DAMN. became Kendrick’s third album to surpass 1 million album sales in the US (joining To Pimp A Butterfly and good kid, m.A.A.d city.) and earned him a staggering five GRAMMY Award wins from a total of seven nominations.

With 13 billion Spotify streams, 12 Grammy awards, and over 6 million album sales worldwide under his belt, Kendrick Lamar has an incredible reach that surpasses many of his peers. He was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by TIME Magazine and in the best 10 rappers of all time by Billboard, amongst other accolades. Lamar most recently curated and produced the soundtrack for Marvel Studios blockbuster Black Panther, which he worked on during the DAMN. tour in the United States last year.
