SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS have officially confirmed that this year’s festival will again be held in the wonderful surrounds of Woodfordia, near Woodford, south-east Queensland.
Australia’s number one mid-winter music celebration will be held across three big days from Friday 29th to Sunday 31st July. Set those dates aside for more music, arts and culture from around the globe.
SITG would also like to advise that any damage inflicted on the Woodfordia site during January’s devastating floods throughout SE QLD will be well and truly repaired by the time of the festival. “We wouldn’t be announcing Woodfordia as the location for the 2011 Splendour In the Grass festival if we weren’t completely confident that was the case,” said Splendour’s co-producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco.
This will be the second year that Splendour in the Grass will be held at the Woodfordia location while the approval process for the festival’s own permanent home at North Byron Parklands continues. Since 2006, Splendour In The Grass has been working toward establishing a permanent sustainable event venue to stage the festival at the 660 acre North Byron Parklands site at Yelgun in the north of the shire. The Parklands project is still undergoing a comprehensive approval process with the NSW Department of Planning and can’t be considered for this year’s festival. We will keep you posted on any news on a Department of Planning decision.
The big news on the 2011 lineup and ticketing info will be announced in coming months. We’re looking forward to sharing it with you.
