Splendour in the Grass
Splendour in the Grass
is an Australian music festival that has been held annually since 2001. The festival has been held near Byron Bay, New South Wales for all but two years since its inauguration. In 2010 and 2011, the festival was held in Woodford, Queensland, while organisers made an effort to gain support for a new location at North Byron Parklands at Yelgun (30 km from Byron Bay). The event returned to Byron Bay
Byron Bay
in 2012, when it was held at Belongil Fields.[1][2] The 2013 festival was the first to be held at the new North Byron Parklands location, to much controversy from festival goers and the local community. The festival was jointly created and promoted by the Village Sounds and Secret Service music companies, and began in 2001 as a one-day gathering to cater for Australia's winter season (a period that had traditionally been associated with very few events of this nature); the festival evolved into a two-day event in 2002. As of 2014, the capacity of the three-day festival is 30,000 and it is considered the country's largest winter music festival. The festival was awarded the FasterLouder Festival Award for 'Favourite Line Up' in 2009.[3] "Ode: Intimations of Immortality", by English poet William Wordsworth, was the inspiration for the naming of the event.[4] Splendour in the Grass
Splendour in the Grass
has attracted notable revellers such as Elon Musk and Amber Heard.[5]

Ticketing issues[edit] 2005[edit] The 14,000 tickets of the 2005 festival were sold out within 26 hours and, soon after, festival tickets that initially cost A$125 were offered on eBay at inflated prices of up to A$3000. The festival organisers responded by sending "cease and desist" letters to eBay, as well as around 150 ticket resellers, citing a breach of the conditions of sale. However, eBay refused to block the ticket auctions, claiming it was the seller's responsibility to ensure that they have the ability and right to sell products. The Triple J
Triple J
radio station encouraged its listeners to sabotage the bidding process and fake bids of up to A$10,000 were consequently listed on eBay by protesters opposed to ticket scalping.[6] Following media coverage, the NSW Department of Fair Trading became involved and met with eBay representatives. The then-Fair Trading Minister John Hatzistergos instructed the Office of Fair Trading to investigate the reselling of tickets and determine whether resellers were in breach of the Fair Trading Act. Festival promoters hoped that the investigation would eventually lead to the introduction of anti-ticket scalping legislation. 2006[edit] In response to the events of 2005, the organisers altered the ticketing system for the 2006 festival. In an unprecedented action, ticket buyers were required to register their name and date of birth at the time of purchase. These details were then printed on the event tickets and valid identification was required to gain admission into the festival. Tickets to the 2006 festival went on sale at 9am on Monday 15 May 2006—all camping tickets sold out within three hours, and all general admission tickets sold out after 48 hours.[citation needed]

Editors performing at 2007 Splendor in the Grass Festival

2008[edit] Festival organisers encountered difficulties with the ticketing system provided by the Qjump company in 2008, as consumers were unable to purchase tickets following lengthy delays.[7] Qjump later issued an apology on the festival's Internet forum. Venue issues[edit] For a once-only trial, the organisers obtained permission to stage the 2009 Splendour in the Grass
Splendour in the Grass
at a site in Yelgun. However, the consent provided to the organisers was the subject of a challenge by a group of residents, environmentalist and the Environmental Defenders Office of NSW, who presented their case in the New South Wales Land and Environment Court. The Chief Judge of the Land and Environment Court, Justice Brian Preston, ruled that Byron Shire Council had exceeded its powers by granting the development consent where the land included parts zoned for conservation purposes. The development consent was ruled invalid, prohibiting the festival from being held at the Yelgun site.[8] As a consequence of the decision, the festival remained at the Belongil site in 2009.[9] In 2016 many attendees were forced to walk from the venue or sleep in the mud due to a lack of transport.[10] Artist lineups by year[edit] 2001[edit]
