Waiting it out – Splendour in the Grass 2021 will make a late entrance in November. Photo Tree Faerie.

Organisers of Splendour in the Grass say that Groundhog Day jokes aside, the 2021 festival will be rescheduled for a late spring edition, from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 November.

Splendour in the Grass co-founders Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco said they wanted to extend a huge thank you to the event headliners for being flexible and to the amazing Splendour community for their ongoing support. ‘We miss you and we can guarantee that when we see you in November it’s going to be worth the wait!’

Splendour Festival Directors Paul Piticco and Jessica Ducrou.

Ducrou and Piticco said they had so hoped to bring punters a Splendour’s 20th Anniversary edition in July but they can’t stage the event within the current restrictions and international border closures.

‘Since March 2020, not a single festival in Australia has been able to run at full capacity and the industry is currently operating at a fraction of pre-Covid levels.

‘Australia’s live music industry is made up of many sole traders and small businesses alongside the larger tour and event promoters. In support of them all, we implore the government to provide some form of continued wage subsidy until the industry can once again operate at full capacity.

Hold onto your tickets

Ducrou and Piticco want to send a message to the music loving public: ‘When a tour or event is postponed we ask you to hold onto your tickets. This is the best way to support your favourite artist or event right now.’

Ducrou and Piticco are hopping that the warmer November weather will be an added bonus for the late spring edition of Splendour in the Grass. ‘Please retain your tickets and support live music if you wish to attend Splendour in November.’

Ticket holders who are not able to attend the new dates will be able to apply for a refund from 12pm today until Wednesday 31 March. Moshtix will be in touch with all account holders directly with more information.
