Rated one of the world’s top mu­sic fes­ti­vals, Splen­dour in the Grass is in July. Af­ter 14 years, it has be­come some­thing of an Aussie in­sti­tu­tion with 50,000 regularly mak­ing a win­ter pil­grim­age to North By­ron Park­lands for three days of world-class mu­sic, arts, craft, food, talks, com­edy shows, phi­los­o­phy, camp­ing and fun.

Splen­dour 2015’s epic line-up of more than 100 acts, in­clud­ing Florence + the Ma­chine, Blur, Mark Ron­son, Tame Im­pala and Ryan Adams, played to ca­pac­ity crowds across four main stages, in­clud­ing the am­phithe­atre. Stages are up to 20 min­utes apart.

Along­side the mu­sic, fes­ti­val-go­ers did work­shops, got their glit­ter on at Splen­dour in the Craft, for­aged at the many food and mar­ket stalls, prac­tised yoga, did dance work­shops, med­i­tated at The Global Vil­lage, danced their hearts out at the Tipi For­est, in­ter­acted with vis­ual and per­for­mance artists, and lis­tened to lively dis­cus­sions and de­bates at the Splen­dour Fo­rum.
