Splendour In The Grass is an Australian music festival held at the end of July. Splendour was first held in Byron Bay from 2001-2009 at Belongil Fields. In 2010 and 2011 the festival was moved and held in Woodford, Queensland. There was a lot of controversy about this change so in 2012 Splendour returned to the Byron Belongil site, and has since moved yet again to be held at the much larger North Byron Parklands site at Yelgun. Yelgun is approximately 15 mins drive from Byron Bay.
Splendour in The Grass is a massively popular festival, usually tickets will sell out on the day of release within the first 10 minutes. For those who are super keen there is always a second release of tickets.
Splendour is so popular because great international artists play each year! In previous years many famous artists have played at Splendour In The Grass such as: Lily Allen, Outkast, The Cure, Kelis, Kanye West, Coldplay, 360, Flume, Empire of the sun and so many more…
