Let the party begin! SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS, one of Australia’s most celebrated music festivals is set to commemorate its 10-year anniversary with its most exciting event yet.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since the little event called SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS made its debut in Byron Bay. The mid winter event which consistently featured quality music acts alongside quirky arts and counter-culture was quickly embraced by music lovers. In the ensuing years SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS has featured a spectacular collection of awesome artists from around the globe and has reached icon status, with tickets selling out within minutes of going on sale.
Fast-forward to 2010 and the beautiful site of Woodfordia in the QLD Sunshine Coast hinterland will play host to SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS in this very special anniversary year. And this year, the birthday party will take place over three magnificent days from Friday July 30th to Sunday August This year, for the first time, we’re proud to serve up our much-anticipated line-up on one big, fat platter. That’s more than 80 acts that will perform across our three main stages – the Amphitheatre, Mix Up tent and G.W McLennan stage.
But first, we need to provide detail on the all-important event ticket and camping information, which The capacity at Woodfordia is 30,000, with enough room on site for 20,000 campers. As a result, there will be a combined event and camping ticket available for the first time. The event/camping ticket will provide access to the campgrounds from Wednesday 28th July with the actual event site opening 4pm Thursday 29th July until 12 midday on Monday 2nd August. Please note the Amphitheatre, Mix Up and McLennan stages will be operating on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only.
The Woodfordia campground will be the most convenient and affordable place to stay during the event. All you need is on site in our splendid mini-city, right on your grassy doorstep. Come join the organisers, crew, staff and many of the artists who will also be camping out under the stars.
