Splendour In The Grass announce the 2012 dates and a return to its spiritual home of Byron Bay.
For the last two years, the festival has been hosted at Woodfordia in Queensland, and now they are working on getting it back to where it belongs – Belongil Fields in the beachside haven of Byron Bay.
Splendour Co-Producer Jessica Ducrou said in a press release, “Despite great efforts to have the festival at North Byron Parklands this year, we are yet to have a determination on the application..
“In the meantime and after much consideration we are excited at the prospect of returning to the birth place of Splendour.”
Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham said, “Splendour’s home is Byron Bay and there is defined benefit that the festival delivers to the area, especially in winter, so it is a welcome return.”
They have also announced the dates, so block out your calendar for Friday 27 to Sunday 29 July.
