The Splendour In The Grass 2013 lineup is finally here! We’ve had the leaks, the rumours, the speculation, but now the official lineup for Australia’s biggest winter music festival is here.

Although there’s been quite a few bands and artsist we knew were going to appear on the bill (looking at you The National, The Growl, James Blake, Airbourne, The Polyphonic Spree, and Cold War Kids, Of Monsters And Men, Deap Valley and Jake Bugg), there’s still plenty of surprises on the 2013 bill.

Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean, Empire Of The Sun, Bernard Fanning, The Presets, TV On The Radio, and Klaxons are just a taste of the excellent additions to the 2013 bill, which has a total of 77 bands and DJs.

Taking place over three days, from Friday 26th July to Sunday 29th July, Splendour returns to its purpose built site at the North Byron Parklands in Yelgun. Organisers have waited and worked for seven years to return to their new permanent residence, 25 kilometres north of Byron, on a massive 660 acres of parkland for all the festival camping delights.

Ticket prices have also been announced, capped at 25,000 allocation and the pricing is very similar to Splendour 2012. Single-day tickets cost $140 plus booking fee (just $5 more from last year), three-day event tickets remain at $350 plus booking fees, while camping tickets cost $99 plus booking fee once more. There’s also a newly named VIP tier called the Country Club Ticket, with a price tag of $699 which seems to be the 2013 edition to last year’s Gold VIP tickets.
