Splendour in the Grass

Splendour in the Grass is an Australian music and arts festival that takes place every year since 2001. Traditionally, the festival is held in Byron Bay, New South Wales, except for two years since its inauguration when it was held in Woodford, Queensland. The 2013 festival was the first to be held at the new North Byron Parklands locations, to much controversy from festival goers and the local community. The buzz recently happened in 20 - 22 JULY 2018.

The festival was created and promoted by the Village Sounds and Secret Service music companies, and began in 2001 as a one-day gathering for festival goers looking for an event in winter as it is a period when there are not that many events of this nature. The festival evolved into a two-day event in 2002.
As well as the latest and top music from Australia and overseas, the festival also features local arts and crafts and cuisine.
Since 2014, the festival holds up to 30,000 and it is considered Australia's largest winter music festival.
Splendour in the Grass was awarded the Faster Louder Festival Award for “Favourite Line Up” in 2009. “Ode: Intimations of Immortality”, by English poet William Wordsworth, was the inspiration for the naming of the event.
In 2016, the headline includes The Strokes (only Australian show), The Cure, Flume, The Avalanches (only Australian show), James Blake, At the Drive-in, Violent Soho, Hermitude, Band of Horses, Sigur Ros, Santigold, Matt Corby, Sticky Fingers, Boy & Bear, Jake Bugg, the 1975, Leon Bridges, Duke Dumong (DJ Set), James Vincent McMorrow, Courtney Barnett, The Kills, The Preatures, What so not, Years & YEars, Gang of Youths, Illy, Peter, Bjorn & John, Golden Features, Crystal Fighters, Ball Park Music, Tegan & Sara, DMA's, Hayden James, City Calm Down, Snakehips, Mark Lanegan Band, Michael Kiwanuka, Jagwar Ma, Jack Garratt, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, The Jungle Giants, The Internet, Motez, Marlon Williams & The Yarra Benders, Lido, Emma Louise, Kim Churchill, Nothing But Thieves, Kacy Hill, Slumberjack, Robert Forster, Beach Slang, Boo Seeka, Ganz, Spring King, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Fat White Family, Total Giovanni, Methyl Ethel, Slum Sociable, LDRU, In Loving Memory of Szymon, Blossoms, High Tension, Roland Tings, Sampa The Great, The Wild Feathres, Harts, NGAIIRE, Montaigne, Tired Lion, Green Buzzard, Jess Kent, Gold Class, Lucy Cliché, Opiuo, Mall Grab, Dom Dolla, Paces, Just a Gent, Dro Carey, Running Touch, Wafia, World Champion, Sui Zhen, Remi, Nicole Millar, Dreller, Feki, Kllo, Banoffee, Moonbase Commander, The Meeting Tree, Twinsy, Purple Sneaker DJ's, Human Movement, Planéte, Swick, Amateur Dance, Ribongia, among others.
