After two years at Woodfordia in Queensland, Splendour in the Grass is set to return to where it all started, Belongil Fields in Byron Bay.

The move has been supported by Byron Shire mayor Jan Barham.

‘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,’ she said.

Splendour co-producer Jessica Ducrou said ‘despite great efforts to have the festival at North Byron Parklands this year, we are yet to have a determination on the application’.

‘In the meantime and after much consideration we are excited at the prospect of returning to the birthplace of Splendour.

‘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.

The dates for this year’s event are Friday 27, Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July. For full program details go to http://splendourinthegrass.com/#main-lineup.html.
