Splendour In The Grass says that you can still get a ticket… as long as it’s a VIP Gold Pass for $700.
If you missed out on a ticket to this year’s Splendour In The Grass, you have another chance, as long as you have $700 and a thirst for the high life.
For the first time, Splendour will offer the Gold Pass. Co-producer Jessica Ducrou says in a press release, “Many overseas festivals, and other Australian events, offer VIP tickets and it’s something our patrons have been asking us about. We withheld a very small allocation of tickets to provide it as an exclusive offer this year.”
What do you get for your money? There’s access to the VIP Express Lane entry and the exclusive Gold Bar and its facilities. They’ll also be able to mingle with the artists, media and industry in a VIP area, as well as side-of-stage viewing and direct entry to the VIP toilets. Nice.
The tickets are available for 700 clams (plus a booking fee) but those who already have tickets can tack on another $350 to get an upgrade. The very limited Gold Passes go on sale from moshtix.com.au and at 1300 GET TIX (438 849) from midday this Friday 8 June.
We’re estimating this is the view you’ll get of Billy Corgan’s head.
