Splendour In The Grass In Byron for 2012 !

You are here

Yes that's right. Splendour In The Grass is planning to return to Byron Bay for the 2012 event.

The dates for the 2012 event are Friday 27, Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July.

After two years at Woodfordia in Queensland, Splendour In The Grass organisers are currently working on taking Australia's premier winter music and arts festival back to where it all started, Belongil Fields in Byron Bay.

"Despite great efforts to have the festival at North Byron Parklands this year, we are yet to have a determination on the application." said Splendour Co-Producer Jessica Ducrou.

"In the meantime and after much consideration we are excited at the prospect of returning to the birth place of Splendour."

One of Australia's premier holiday locations, Byron Bay is internationally renowned for its beautiful beaches, lush hinterland and laid back culture.

Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham has welcomed Splendour back to Byron Bay for 2012.

"Splendour's home is Byron Bay and there is defined benefit that the festival delivers to the area, especially in winter, so it is a welcome return" said Mayor Barham

"Taking the event back to Byron Bay allows us to give our audience the true Splendour experience, a quality music and arts festival combined with that distinctive Byron culture." Ms Ducrou said.

"We'd like to thank Woodfordia and the very wonderful Bill Hauritz, Mayor Allan Sutherland and Moreton Bay Regional Council for welcoming us with open arms and hosting our event for the last two years."
