BREAKING: Splendour In The Grass 2020 Has Officially Been Shifted To Later In The Year
Well, damn. Another one bites the dust.
Today Splendour In The Grass officials have announced that the famed festival will be postponed until later in the year. SITG was set to celebrate the 20th anniversary across the weekend of 24th - 26th July, with thousands of fans ready to make the pilgrimage to the North Byron Parklands.
The festival will now take place from the 23rd - 25th October which will be a much warmer change to the iconically ~chilly~ event.
“Health and safety is our number one priority. After careful consideration and consultation with our artists, crew and stakeholders, in these unpredictable times we have decided, as a precautionary measure, to move Splendour in the Grass 2020 out of the winter months," said SITG co-founders Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco.

Organisers are hopeful there won't be any changes to the lineup, however they urged attendees to be mindful of the fact this could be subject to change as things develop over the next few months.
"Flume, The Strokes and Tyler, The Creator who have all confirmed their attendance for these new dates alongside most others," they said. "As this is moving quickly and we work through the detail there will be some programming changes but we are confident that rescheduling to October - a one off Spring edition of Splendour - is the best way to ensure we present the Splendour experience you all know and love."
This news will of course be a bit of a bummer for ticket holders who have already locked in accommodation and travel. Let's hope they can recoup some of the costs or shift their bookings.
"We understand that many of our patrons have already made plans for July and we trust local accommodation and travel providers will act in the best interests of all to accommodate these changes without penalty," they continued.
Looking forward to October when we can all get out there and enjoy live music and Gözleme, safely.
