The organisers of Splendour In The Grass have advised that all tickets for the 2016 event, taking place Friday 22 to Sunday 24 July at North Byron Parklands, have now sold out.

Organisers say that when tickets were released at 9am yesterday at least three times the number of punters were ready to purchase than last year.

It’s probably not surprising given the massive line-up on offer this year, which includes ‘only Australian shows’ from the likes of The Strokes, The Avalanches, James Vincent McMorrow and Sigur Ros.

Co-producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco said, ‘Once again we have been totally floored by the incredible enthusiasm and support from the Splendour community.’

Locals’ tickets, which went on sale in Byron Bay last weekend, were also snapped up quickly.

Desperados still have a chance to get their hands on a ticket via the official resale facility.

If you purchased tickets and can no longer attend the show, the ticket resale facility gives you the opportunity to offload your ticket to someone who missed out.

The resale will kick into action via moshtix from 9am AEST Monday, May 30. Organisers warn this is now the only place where you can purchase legitimate tickets as those resold elsewhere will not be honoured.

You can find out more info about the resale and join a waiting list here.

Day parking and camping tickets will also go on sale on May 30
