Splendour In The Grass Announces Act Lineup; Mumford & Sons Headlining Event


Splendour in the Grass has released the lineup for their 2013 festival, with 2010 headliner Mumford & Sons coming back to play on the main stage. The Australian music festival will see over 80 acts on stage at the North Bryon Parklands, NSW from July 26 to 28.

Also headlining the festival are Frank Ocean, who will take the main stage on the second day, and The National and Empire of the Sun, which will play on the third day. Mumford & Sons, TV on the Radio, and The National are playing their only Australian show in the festival.

Tickets will start at $147 for single-day tickets, $359 for three-day sales, $105 for onsite camping, and $712 for a Country Club Ticket that includes camping spot with exclusive toilets, cloakroom, showers, phone charging, bus travel, and exclusive bar with a overlooking view of the Supertop stage. Tickets will be sold from May, Thursday, at 9am via Moshtix. Prices mentioned already included booking fees.

Splendour members will have first dibs on the first release of tickets. One person can purchase up to four tickets only.

The festival also includes a carbon offset option for $3 per ticket. With the extra payment, Climate Friendly will invest in renewable energy generation and forest protection projects.

It will be back to Byron Bay for the music fest. It was always Byron Bay for the annual fest since its conception in 2001, but it transferred in Woodford, Queensland during the 2010 and 2011 festival due to the restrictions at the original location.
