Splendour In The Grass have revealed the first details for their 2017 instalment

Write it in your diary and start applying for leave, because Splendour In The Grass has just revealed their festival dates for 2017.

This year’s event will take place from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 July. For those of you that are making the trek and camping, you’ll be able to pitch your tent from Wednesday July 19.

It’ll take place at North Byron Parklands. This year will also be the first year that the event will be run under touring company Live Nation, which acquired Secret Sounds late last year. 

It’ll be a few months time before we get a hint of what the lineup will be, but seeing as the last few years have offered up the likes of Flume, The Cure, The Strokes, The Avalanches and Florence & The Machine, it’s probably going to be huge.

It’s interesting to note that this year, Splendour is not clashing with New York’s Panorama festival – which has unveiled a monster lineup for this year’s instalment – so that could offer a few clues as to who we can expect in Byron.
