Splendour in the Grass 2014 Campervan HireSplendour in the Grass is a popular Aussie music festival held annually in July in New South Wales, Australia. The 2014 festival will be held again at North Byron Parklands after a successful debut of the venue last year. The festival has grown exponentially and is now a much-anticipated winter getaway for many Aussie music lovers. The festival was seeded in 2001 by Village Sounds and Secret Service, both music companies. Originally a small one day event, it has expanded to a 3-day event with 30,000 people attending.
Splendour is the country’s largest winter music festival. It has had some impressive acts over the years, including both local and international acts- Powderfinger, John Butler Trio, Coldplay, Placebo, Jet, Franz Ferdinand, Dizzee Rascal, Moby, Finn Brothers, Scissor Sisters, Snow Patrol, Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party, Sigur Ros, MGMT, The Strokes, Ben Harper, Kanye West, Smashing Pumpkins and The Kooks are just some of the biggest names that have performed at Splendour in the Grass over the years.
The 2014 Splendour is looking to be bigger and better than ever, and although it is too early for many acts to have been announced, London Grammar has intimated that they will be among the acts playing. More information can be found at splendourinthegrass.com, and the dates, confirmed acts and ticket prices will be found there when available.
Tickets to the event go on sale in May, and usually sell out very fast, so those wishing to attend will have to get in quick, especially those wanting to camp onsite and be right in the middle of the action. Motorhomes up to 7.5 metres in length and caravans up to 6 metres are fine to bring onsite, but separate camping and event tickets are needed. There are no powered sites.
