Splendour in the Grass, Byron Bay

Let the music play. This weekend we make the annual pilgrimage to NSW’s North Byron Parklands for Splendour in the Grass, Australia’s biggest mid-year music and arts festival. Grab your friends, and your boots, and lose yourself in a weekend of local and international talent and outdoor revelry. Because music sounds better with you.

Festival-goers find themselves spoilt for choice with the calibre of talent forming Splendour’s 2016 lineup. The Strokes kick things off on Friday for their only Australian appearance, while the Avalanches will debut their recently released sophomore album Wildflower. The Preatures, British duo The Kills and soul wunderkind Leon Bridges are also on our weekend set-list.

Take …
Channel your inner Woodstock attendee with butterfly-adorned Valentino denim and star-spangled dresses, ensure festival-fresh hair, even after a night of dancing, with Klorane Gentle dry shampoo with Oat Milk, and while the music might end on the stages, it doesn’t have to be over at home – continue listening to those Splendour acts into the early hours with Sonos Play:1 wireless speaker and relive your favourite festival moments.

The Tipi Forest makes its return for 2016, featuring an enviable line-up of DJs, electronic producers, outdoor dance floors and interactive art spaces.
