We’re just days away from the gates officially opening for Splendour In The Grass 2016 and by the looks of it, it’s good news for punters heading there.
The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) is predicting mostly sunshine for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the festival with highs of over 20°C.
In fact, it’s looking so good that the worst it gets is “mostly sunny” on Sunday but even then, there’s a very small chance of any rainfall which will come as welcome news to anybody who endured last year’s mud bath.
If you’ve forgotten because you weren’t there or somehow managed to find an unusually dry spot to spend all of last year’s Splendour, it was mud city in 2015 with the festival coined Splendour In The Mud.
You may still want to pack your gumboots just in case but it’s looking like you won’t be knee deep in mud this year, meaning you may even come home with a clean pair.
At night, temperatures aren’t predicted to drop lower than 16°C which isn’t too cold but warm clothes are still definitely a must once the sun drops.
There’s almost no chance of rain all week so hopefully the Splendour fields will be looking magnificent when the campgrounds open on Wednesday.
Despite the forecast, Splendour has warned punters that the weather can be unpredictable.
“Prepare for the best of both worlds – beanies, warm jackets, doonas, cosy socks and something weather proof. A trusty pair of gumboots will never go astray either,” they wrote on Facebook.
