The SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS is held every year around the end of July or the start of August. Splendour's original home was at the Belongi Fields in Byron Bay, about 8 hours drive north of Sydney. The festival was first introduced back in 2001 and started out as a one-day event. The event expanded to a two-day event in 2002 and as of 2010, it will become a three-day event.
My very first Splendour experience was on Day Two of the 2004 festival.
Over time, the event has attracted some huge artists such as Coldplay, Moby, Placebo, PJ Harvey, Brian Wilson from The Beach Boys and the Arctic Monkeys.
This year will see the festival move north to Woodfordia on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. The site can accomodate up to 30,000 concert attendees, with enough room for 20,000 people to camp each day and night over the three day festival.
