Splendour in the grass 2012 lineup announcement

In 2012 SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS embarks on a new chapter in the life of Australia’s favourite winter festival. Back home at Byron Bay, from July 27 to 29 Splendour will once again transform Belongil Fields into the ultimate playground for music and arts enthusiasts.


Splendour returns to Byron Bay with 3 full days of knockout talent from around the globe! And while the site will feel familiar to many, it will also include all the bells and whistles from 2011.


“The show has grown over the past few years with the addition of an extra day. We have a bunch more bands on the lineup and new venues like The Forum, the Very Small Mall and Day Spa etcetera plus we’ve got some surprises in store this year. It will definitely be the best Splendour ever staged in Byron Bay” said Splendour co-producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco.


In 2012 Splendour will host its most eclectic gathering of artists to date. Over three mammoth days, punters will pick and choose from a lineup that showcases a host of “White” hot international acts – from brand new to massively respected and innovative trailblazers - alongside many of Australia’s finest artists and festival favourites.


The twelfth SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS event will also include all of the event’s most loved festival features…
The GLOBAL VILLAGE is so Byron Bay! It’s back with all the performances, workshops, markets stalls and global food fair that everyone loves.


It just wouldn’t be Splendour without the TIPI FOREST and as all seasoned Splendour punters know, venture here and be prepared to lose all track of time!


Need to brush up your festival fashion? Check out the VERY SMALL MALL and while you’re at it you might want to book a treatment at the SPLENDOUR DAY SPA to be looking your splendiferous best when you meet your mates at the COCKTAIL BAR. Here you’ll find a different club each night including Melbourne’s Survivor, Sydney’s Good God, Brisbane’s Cobra Kai and Byron Bay’s own Sunday Safari.


The SPLENDID ARTS PROGRAM will once again present a series of dynamic and interactive artworks. Keep on the lookout for artists and their work as it emerges across the site throughout the weekend.


As Splendour is a bigger show than it was when last staged at Belongil Fields, this year there will be no CAMPING on site but hey, it’s okay. A beautiful, beachside campground will be set up off-site at NORTH BEACH CAMPGROUND on Bayshore Drive, Byron Bay. It’s within easy walking distance of the festival or you can catch one of the free shuttle buses. You’ll find more information about camping at splendourinthegrass.com.


SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS has a history of delivering innovative environmental initiatives to lighten our carbon footprint. Over the years, SPLENDOUR and its army of committed enviro-savvy punters have offset thousands of tonnes of carbon via carbon-offset tickets and on site recycling programs.

John Fogerty was John Fogerty was the songwriter, sigenr, frontman for a very well known band of its time (late 1960 s) Creedance Clearwater Revival. Green River was just one of many of CCR's many hit songs. Just goes to show that rock and roll doesn't age you, although Keith Richards may have something to say about that.
