Splendour in the Grass Survival Guide 2017

Survival Guide

It’s winter again, and that can only mean one thing for festival goers. Splendour in the Grass 2017. You’ve finally gotten your hot little hands on those tickets and with an awesome line up this year what could be better. Only a few weeks away Splendour is knocking right at our door. We thought why not give you an inside scoop into how to handle one of Australia’s best music festivals right on Byron’s doorstep.

Step 1: Accommodation

If you aren’t aware it’s winter already then get ready for some cold nights ahead at Splendour. Whether you’re travelling with friends or family maybe this is the year for you to all pitch in and split a house together instead of roughing it in the cold? Check out our availability and prices for this winter or give us a call on 02 6685 8749.

Step 2: Equipment

Let’s face it, most of the time the sun is out and it’s quite hot during the day at Splendour but as soon as the sun sets winter is definitely here. Don’t let the warm day time fool you. So dress smart!

Step 3: Gumboots

This one should be a no-brainer, Splendour is renowned for the mud. A pair of trustworthy boots or gummies are invaluable at this festival.

Step 4: Playlist

Ensure that you are 100% prepared for the long weekend and the drive down to Byron Bay. Don’t forget snacks for the car ride either. Be sure to check in with Tripple J for the best pre-splendour warm up, if your playlist isn’t up to scratch. Hit up some of the main headliners like Queens of the Stone Age, the xx and LCD Sound system. Don’t forget about the home-grown Aussie acts like Vance Joy, King Gizzard and Peking Duck. To help curate your playlist, check out the rest of the Lineup here.

Step 5: Don't forget to enjoy Byron

If you have the time why not take an extra day or two to unwind and enjoy the stunning coastal town that Byron Bay is. Experience the crystal clear water, whale watching from the lighthouse and endless dining options that Byron can offer.
