The organisers of the annual Splendour In The Grass have just advised that all 3 day, single day, and camping tickets to the 2013 event, taking place Friday 26 to Sunday 28 July at North Byron Parklands, Byron Bay have completely sold out.

The system laboured a little under unprecedented the demand for tickets, but once it started to move it was all smooth sailing. With an increased capacity this year, all single and three days tickets sold out in under an hour. There are still a limited number of Country Club tickets available from Moshtix but with all other tickets now gone these too are moving fast.

Event Producers, Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco said “What a perfect start for Splendour at our new home, North Byron Parklands! Our housewarming party is going to be awesome. Please don’t bring a pot plant!”

The lineup  was officially announced  last week after many  leaks, rumours, the speculation, much to the delight of music fans everywhere.

Although there were 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 DJ – including a yet-to-be-revealed Mystery Band (who could it be? We’ve got a few hunches…)

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.

Despite the fact that tickets are sold out there is more good news on the way with the folks at the festival disclosing that they’ll be announcing the Official Splendour Sideshows on Monday, stay tuned!
