is a hip, groovy festival with tons of music, deejays, crafts, food, yoga, teepees, massages, workshops and, of course, circus performers.
Its name alone, Splendour in the Grass, evokes lazy, languid afternoons and evenings hanging around, relaxing, soaking up summer’s rays and life’s best unplanned moments. Or maybe it makes you think of that old classic movie. Imagine instead, you’re looking at Australia and, in an effort to create a destination event during a slow period, the winter. Never fear, the temps are mild enough for enjoyment—Byron Bay is a surfer’s paradise and home to lots of creative types. When you add a lineup of super popular artists, along with food trucks, teepees, crafts, a kids’ area, yoga, spa activities, workshops, speakers and the requisite circus performers—you get more things you could possibly do in three days. You get Splendour in the Grass.
