Fresh off winning his inner city Sydney seat of Grayndler, Anthony ‘Albo’ Albanese has today refused to rule out challenging the Avalanches for a spot at the musical festival Splendour in the grass.
Speaking to The (un)Australian, deputy leader of the Labor Party Tanya Plibersek said: “The Avalanches did an amazing job campaigning for a spot at Splendour, but Albo has a strong record.”
Opposition leader Bill Shorten could not be reached, for comment however conservative commentator Andrew Bolt opined on his blog: “Why wasn’t my good friend Cory Bernardi invited to play this festival? Typical leftist, warmist inner city trendies going for an Avalanche or an Albo when they could have a Bernardi. The man is a genius on an oboe.”
Organisers of Splendour in the grass have confirmed that The Avalanches will be headlining, however they had no comment on whether or not Albo would be appearing after they had already booked one former politician, John Howard, to DJ. Organisers said Mr Howard came highly recommended as he apparently “DJ’s like a mad ****.”
