Byron Bay is one of the most musically oriented places in Australia and consistently hosts many large-scale music events, attracting celebrities and musicians from all over the world.
Not So Humble Beginnings
Most festivals start off small before they become world-famous, the Splendour in the Grass Music Festival was not one of them. The fourth incarnation, in 2005, was sold out within 26 hours, and scalpers were selling tickets originally priced at A$125 for upwards of A$3000.
The festival is massive, and much like other big festivals in Byron Bay has attracted some very famous attendees. These include Elon Musk as well as Amber Heard, who are notable fans of the festival. You’ll definitely find this festival on the best entertainment blogs.
Notable Bands and Performances
The festival mainly deals with indie/alternative music, and some of the most famous artists and bands that have performed include Coldplay, Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys, and The Smashing Pumpkins.
The Biggest Winter Music Festival
With an average crowd of 30,000, the Splendour in the Grass festival is easily the biggest winter music festival in Australia, situated at one of the hottest concert locations, Byron Bay. As winter approaches you’ll find many entities such as My Entertainment Hub covering the event.
