SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS
Since its debut in Byron Bay in 2001 Splendour in the Grass has grown to become arguably Australia's most popular music and arts event. The scramble for tickets each year highlights the popularity of this internationally acclaimed event with tickets consistently selling out in record time. Splendour has hosted literally some of the biggest names in contemporary music and continues to be the hot mid winter destination on the Australian music event calendar. For 3 days patrons literally make Splendour their home away from home - there's art, craft, workshops, market stalls, yoga, dance and fusion food. There's the incredibly popular Splendour Forum where guests discuss both the heavy and lighter topics, and ponder the tricky philosophical questions. There's comedy and there's karaoke. There's even a Splendour Day Spa and the Very Small Mall. But most importantly there's music and the spirit of community.
Falls is a multi day camping event which takes place at the end of December in Lorne (Victoria), Marion Bay (Tasmania) and now at Parklands in Byron Bay which hosted the inaugural Northern NSW leg Dec 13 / Jan 14th. The event presents music acts from around the globe and has a strong focus on the arts and environment. Over the years Falls Festival has been developed and fostered by a group of family and friends and this tradition continues today. It is one of the most beloved music and arts festivals in Australia.
"Energy levels were clearly high all over the festival, as punters bounded up and down the steep hill which formed one side of the vast natural amphitheatre surrounding the main stage. It is an impressive site to behold, and certainly adds to the essence of wonder and beauty already established by Byron Bay's sister venues in Lorne and Marion Bay." (Music Feeds 2014)
