Splendour In The Grass has officially announced the festival will be rescheduling its dates, in response to the global coronavirus pandemic.
Splendour in the Grass 2020 is being rescheduled to Friday 23, Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 October 2020 at its usual home of North Byron Parklands.
“Health and safety is our number one priority. After careful consideration and consultation with our artists, crew and stakeholders, in these unpredictable times we have decided, as a precautionary measure, to move Splendour in the Grass 2020 out of the winter months,” said Splendour in the Grass co-founders Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco.
“We are not expecting any major upsets to the line-up thanks to the incredible support of the artists playing Splendour. Flume, The Strokes and Tyler, The Creator who have all confirmed their attendance for these new dates alongside most others. As this is moving quickly and we work through the detail there will be some programming changes but we are confident that rescheduling to October – a one off Spring edition of Splendour – is the best way to ensure we present the Splendour experience you all know and love.
“We understand that many of our patrons have already made plans for July and we trust local accommodation and travel providers will act in the best interests of all to accommodate these changes without penalty. Huge thanks for your ongoing support and we’ll see you in October.”
All tickets purchased for the original Splendour July dates are valid for October. Ticket holders who are not able to attend the new dates will be able to apply for a refund.
In a silver lining moment, Splendour organisers also say they’ll be doing a special ticket release in the coming weeks for any refunded tickets that become available. You can sign up for the waitlist here.
