Splendour Festival Directors Paul Piticco and Jessica Ducrou.

Splendour in the Grass co-founders Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco announced this morning that this year’s event, already moved to November this year, will be postponed again until next year.

‘With vaccine rollout progressing more slowly than anticipated, we have made the decision to move the 20th Anniversary edition of the festival to July 2022,’ they said in a press release.

‘We are confident that moving the festival to July 2022 will finally see us enjoying Splendour in the Grass in all its glory. More of the population will be vaccinated, international talent will have the ability to enter the country more freely and we’ll be able to deliver the Splendour in the Grass that you know and love.

‘Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the recent outbreak and lockdowns. We encourage you to get vaccinated if, or as soon as, you are eligible both for your safety and those around you.

‘Please stay safe.

Music industry already on its knees

Ducrou and Piticco say that Australia’s live music industry was already on its knees and the current outbreak, this time with a lack of JobKeeper or wage subsidy, is having a major impact on the livelihoods of everyone within the sector. From the many sole traders and small businesses to the larger tour and event promoters, our industry is in desperate need of government help.

‘We send a heartfelt thanks to all of our Splendour community for sticking with us during this time, your support means the world to us. Please retain your tickets and support live music if you wish to attend Splendour in July.

‘We can’t wait to be back at North Byron Parklands with you in 2022 for what is going to be one hell of a celebration!’
