The Splendour In The Grass 2013 lineup has been revealed.

International acts confirmed for this year’s Splendour include The National, James Blake, Mumford and Sons, Empire Of The Sun, TV On The Radio and Babyshambles.

Splendour 2013 will take place from Friday, July 26 – Sunday, July 28 at the festival’s new site in North Byron Parklands, Yelgun. The event has been working for seven years to move to the new site, which lies 25 kilometres north of Byron proper and is a whopping 660 acres. For its first year on the site Splendour’s capacity will be capped at 25,000 people.

Speaking with FL last year, promoter Jessica Ducrou said that for the first few events at Yelgun they will stick with a similar stage set-up to Belongil Fields: “I think we are looking at Big Tops, certainly for the first couple of years. For us it is just about growing into the space and looking at what works best we have a pretty good idea, we have a pretty good idea. Once you do one show, like you do every year, we look at how we can improve for the next.”

The good news is that ticketing prices are pretty much the same as last year. Splendour In The Grass 2013 single-day tickets will set you back $140 plus booking fees, a mere $5 increase on last year’s $135 single-day tickets. Three-day event tickets remain fixed at $350 plus booking fees and camping tickets will set you back $99 plus booking fees (same as last year). The only surprise is something called a “Country Club ticket” ($699 plus booking fees), which given the price point, seems to be a similar concept to last year’s “Gold VIP tickets”.
