Splendour in the Grass 2012

 Splendour in the Grass is coming home! After two years on sabbatical at the Woodfordia Festival Grounds (in QLD), Australia’s premier Winter Festival is returning to Byron Bay (July 27-29). With a purpose built festival ground still in the works, the three-day music love-in will be held at the Belongil Fields, the site of the festival’s birth in 2001.

With a smaller capacity (Belongil’s capacity is just over 17,000) and a more “Splendour-friendly line-up” this year, the festival sold out in under an hour – the quickest sell-out in the festival’s history.

Two of the Rain&Hale family will be packing their bags and road-tripping up the Pacific Highway for the weekend, and we’ve both put together our top-fives – an extremely arduous task, sifting through the incredible line-up of international and local talent.

Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Electric Guest, Tame Impala, At the Drive-In, Here We Go Magic

See you there (more updates to follow)!
