I attended Splendour in the Grass for the first time last weekend and while the rain that preceded it made the conditions less than idyllic, I was still super impressed.
Not having attending an event like this before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Yes it was muddy but from what I observed their crew worked hard to try and do running repairs while the punters had a blast and embraced the atmosphere.
There were short queues for toilets, drinks and food (with an impressive array of dining options) and getting in and out of the site was a breeze. There were plenty of local stallholders who seemed to be doing brisk trade and the crowd spirit overall felt very good=natured and positive.
And I’m not sure if some of the naysayers out there realise just how many world-class artists this event attracts. To be able to see them in such a beautiful setting so close to home was a brilliant experience. It’s a wonderful event that brings joy to so many people.
Hats off to the Splendour crew for pulling off an amazing event in what must have been trying circumstances. I’ll be back.
