ORIGINAL STORY: After being on sale to the general public for only half an hour, Splendour In The Grass 2017 has now completely sold out, leaving many hopeful festivalgoers empty-handed, and others literally jumping for joy.
Tickets went on sale at 9am AEST this morning, and after around 20 minutes, all camping and three-day passes had already been snatched up. After 30 minutes, the Moshtix website showed that no tickets were available, including individual day passes.
The process began with a whole lot of stress in the Moshtix ‘Green Room’…

…before some punters came to the realisation that they weren’t going to get tickets:

But, for those who somehow managed to get their hands on tickets, it was time to celebrate:
Anyone who missed out on Splendour tickets today still has the chance of picking up tix in the official Splendour Resale, which will begin on Moshtix from 9am AEST on Monday, 8th May. The service allows people to purchase tickets from people who no longer want the tickets they’ve purchased. To join the resale waitlist, head here.
This year’s Splendour ticket sales were preceded by an exclusive Visa Checkout pre-sale, and all of the tickets allocated to the pre-sale were also snapped up super quickly.
The 2017 Splendour In The Grass lineup is headlined by Queens Of The Stone Age, The xx and LCD Soundsystem. Catch the full lineup and the festival dates, below.
