Splendour In the Grass is an annual music, arts and youth culture event which has taken place on the outskirts of Byron Bay each July/August since 2001. Past years have featured a staggering array of the world's leading music talent including Coldplay, Bloc Party, Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, Moby, Brian Wilson and many, many more.
As well as the latest and best in music from Australia and overseas, the festival also features local arts and crafts, creative performance and cuisine.
The festival is on the top of most discerning Australian music fan’s wish-lists of must-go Festivals, which combined with the event's relatively small capacity compared to many of the summer festivals, results in feverish activity on the day tickets go on sale. This year’s festival will be the eighth Splendour In the Grass. The two-day event accommodates 17,500 people and has sold out in advance in each year of its existence, often within hours of going on sale – all tickets to last year’s festival were snapped up in just 5 hours, while the preceding three years’ events sold out in a little over a day.
Many who attend choose to immerse themselves in the full ‘Splendour experience’ by taking advantage of the on-site camping adjacent to the festival site. Campers set up their tents right outside the festival gates and quickly establish their own Splendour village for the weekend.
