Both boast a shelf full of ‘Grammy Awards’ and aren’t shy of a little controversy from time to time - but when it comes to fans, it seems Jack White beats Kanye West hands down!

The ‘2012 Splendour In The Grass’ headliner appears to have helped the festival shift tickets WAY quicker than his rap predecessor!

According to the event’s official Facebook page, tix to the Aussie music bash, which went on sale today, were snapped up in record time of just 43 minutes.

"This tops off an amazing week for Splendour,” event producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco revealed in a statement.

“Massive thanks to everyone who has supported our event this year.''

But, for those of you missed out on the chance to hit up the three-day event in Byron Bay this July – don’t fear!

Organisers are giving fans MORE chances to see the bonanza’s line-up in action with a bunch of Official Splendour sideshows.

As well as The Shins, Hilltop Hoods and Missy Higgins - more gigs are set to be announced on Monday!
