Splendour In The Grass movesback to Byron; announces 2012dates

LOOKING FOR THE SPLENDOUR 2012 LINEUP? HEAD HERE!

Splendour In The Grass has officially confirmed that the event will return to its spiritual home in Byron Bay this year!

Australia’s biggest camping festival will move back to its original beachside location at Belongil Fields for three huge nights of musical action from Friday 27th July – Sunday 29th July, for the first time since temporarily relocating to Woodfordia in Queensland in 2010.

While many fans will no doubt be buoyed by the festival’s return to Belongil promoters are still working on getting approval for the Yelgun site which they purchased in 2006. It has been over six years since the festival’s organisers bought the additional land in North Byron Parkland, where they hope to establish the festival permanently.

Festival promoter Jess Ducrou has said: ““Despite great efforts to have the festival at North Byron Parklands this year, we are yet to have a determination on the application.In the meantime and after much consideration we are excited at the prospect of returning to the birth place of Splendour.”

Since purchasing the Yelgun site Splendour has faced serious opposition from the local council who want to enforce a LEP (Local Environmental Plan) amendment which would limit major music events, that have 6000 patrons and take place over two days.

Despite this opposition, an NSW Planning & Infrastructure report released late last year recommended approval for three major events a year at Yelgun with maximum crowds of 30,000, 25,000 and 15,000 for the three events over a maximum of 10 days in the first year and “approval be given down the track for events for up to 50,000 people if all key performance indicators are met.”

The NSW Public Assessment Commission has held its public hearing about the matter last week at the Byron Bay Community Centre, where 131 speakers presented their cases for and against the development.

When FL spoke to Jess before Splendour last year she told us that “Yelgun has a little more flexibility in its layout to custom build the site to our festival which is appealing. We also have the opportunity to custom build the site for our festival rather Woodford which is built for the Woodford Folk Festival. I just think it will make for the ultimate experience… we’ll be smaller for our first year, smaller than Woodford, because we want to get it right and it’s important for people coming to the show that it’s a smooth experience. And it’s important for the community that it doesn’t feel overwhelming to them either. It really is a year by year thing, we’ll make sure we get it right and everyone’s happy. There’s more space so it’ll be a more relaxed feeling than the last few years where it’s been a little more crowded.”

And as far as the lineup goes, despite early Radiohead and Stone Roses rumours the festival has officially ruled both bands out of the equation but have said we can expect some names in a few months.

Would've preferred that they stay at Woodford for another year before moving to Yelgun. It seems like this is a move to stay that they're here to stay in Byron no matter what.
Isn't the capacity of Belongil smaller than Woodford though?

Yeah, Belongil was 17,500, Woodford is 32,000.

Great news though, very happy to have it return to Byron.

Hinee said on the 9th Feb, 2012

This is bullshit. I'm all for Splendour going back to its roots in Yelgun, but IMO back to Belongil is a huuuuge step backward. In my eyes, Woodford is basically what they want to do with Yelgun, and thus everyone has become accustomed to the giant campgrounds and huge open feel. Now we're having to go back to a total capacity of 17,500? This will have to mean less major headliners, especially now that it's spread across three nights rather than belongils old two. Whether people like it or not, Splendour has well and truly out-grown it's home


I really can't see how this year is going to be able to really shine, but I am urging to be proved wrong.



...btw, wasn't belongil going to be turned into a housing development when they first left, 3 years ago?

jana80 said on the 9th Feb, 2012

I'm definately going to miss the amphi, that place is amazing (not the walk up the hill thought!) but I'm happy it's back where it belongs. Woodford was always going to be temporary. I for one am looking forward to full strength drinks, less crowds and a 3hr less drive for me to get there.

But just saw this on Mess & Noise:

"The line-up for this year’s event will be unveiled in the coming months. Rumoured acts include Radiohead, The Stone Roses and bluejuice."

Um...Splendour dismissed radiohead & stone roses rumours ages ago. And Bluejuice? That's all they could think of? lol FAIL

absolutely love the fact that it's back in Byron, I am from Queensland but Woodford just never felt right for mine, from the first year traffic chaos to the sudden jump from 17500 to 32000 people Splendour in Woodford just seemed to lose its image and become bdo over 3 days (the crowd, not the lineup.) Belongil is an awesome location, so close to the main street of Byron and I love the layout of the festival there. Bring it on, will be best ever!

Assuming they're using the same setup from previous Belongils, no amphiteatre. Which I'm fine with, because getting up and down the hill, especially once it gets crowded, was beyond annoying.

Would've preferred that they stay at Woodford for another year before moving to Yelgun. It seems like this is a move to stay that they're here to stay in Byron no matter what.
Isn't the capacity of Belongil smaller than Woodford though?

Sure is, and as a member of the Splendour Club, I'm fine with that.

Very happy they've returned to Byron, will wait for the lineup, but thinking about booking accomodation right away.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 9th Feb, 2012

I personally think Splendour is a better festival if they go for smaller headliners and more of a Laneway weighted lineup (the bands in the middle of the day/afternoon aren't much smaller than the headliners).

Going back to a smaller festival should make it easier to achieve this. For starters they want have the budget to book Coldplay or Kanye.

gumbuoy

gumbuoy said on the 9th Feb, 2012

Speaking of Splendour Club, I wouldn't be surprised if the Club now has enough members to nearly sell out on that alone, but at the same time they surely have to hold some tickets for non-members, which means there'll be a ticket allocation for the Club, which means there'll be a rush on those tickets too. Dammit.

craig123

craig123 said on the 9th Feb, 2012

i dont know if the members are as high as that - granted it's been going for a few years now but you can't guarantee 100% uptake ...but still ticketing will be tough i expect.

Hinee

Hinee said on the 9th Feb, 2012

lol, don't think there are 17000 members. would say 2-3k MAX, and of that, not all of them come again each year.

Ticketing this year is going to be total balls. I'm going to assume the presale is as painless as ever though.

Because the Woodford amphitheatre shits on the Byron venue. And it's closer to my house and there's more room for more campers at Woodford.

horrible news! so disappointed the last two years at woodford have been amazing.

woodford site easily trumps belongil. now we're back to over priced over populated byron bay.

lineup will need to be amazing for me to make it this year. so sad so very very sad :'(



i doubt the location is going to change the strenght of the drinks.

my point is though, splendour has clearly outgrown the boutique feeling. having the last two years at woodford with massive numbers and massive acts is what we've become accustomed to, and exactly what they would be doing at yelgun too. why not have one last big hoorah at woodford while waiting for yelgun to be approved, then moving the whole scale directly to the new site.


of course i'm completely on the speculative side here. I could be completely wrong and they whip out a 2010 themed lineup, but for me, i just fucking love the sheer size of woodford... being able to make a huge campsite for a group of 15 with tonnes of room for privacy will be missed. Oh well, i guess we get fires back...


lol, actually it does. the midstrength law is only a queensland thing man.

Blasted

Blasted said on the 9th Feb, 2012

will miss the amphitheatre and the abundance of camping but think this will be a back to roots move with a more indie flavour. i think they will not have an issue selling out tickets as it will be smaller with less camping. lets hope they don't try to pack too many in to that site.

so? nearly every festival in sydney only does mid strength drinks (only one i've been to in last 2-3 years was pete's ridge). its all about the $$ so i wouldn't be excited for full strength beverages just yet. i hope i'm wrong but i get a feeling they'll be trying to milk us for all its worth

humanracin said on the 9th Feb, 2012

This will only work if they don't go for too many big names like last year, I agree they need to go for more indie bands, back to basics like laneway.
I only say this because if it's moving back to the old setup, there was always so many problems with the tents filling up too quickly and you're basically left standing outside depending on who's playing...
Unless they build an outdoor natural rise amphitheatre to combat this problem?

The one more year thing was just so they could have to time to sort out Yelgun and move it there in 2013 instead of having a random year at Belongil Fields

gumbuoy

gumbuoy said on the 10th Feb, 2012

Could this also be a reaction to not selling out last year? As much as everyone seems to like the bigger venue and bigger crowd, they had arguably two of the biggest artists in music today last year, and still couldn't sell it out.

It seems that there is definite festival exhaustion atm, and if its a choice between having the bigger venue and only selling 75% (and having that be the story, like it was last year) vs a smaller, cheaper venue which sells out, I know which one I'd go with.

Purely lineup based dude. Last year just didn't have the mid-tier names to justify the $500.


This then leads to another interesting point; how much will tickets be? 2009 was $370 for event+camping, i really can't imagine this year being over $400. If so, expect another absolute shitstorm of criticism about being overpriced.

01seb

01seb said on the 10th Feb, 2012

I'd expect it to be about $500 still, remember that 2009 was only 2 days

Smaller crowds are better and waking up (in an apartment), going for a swim and chilling around Byron then heading into the festival trumps

yeah i agree. not selling out was a major blow but i think it's more a matter of pricing rather than artists. the lineup has been amazing the last 2 years with a good mix of indie acts with more mainstream music.

i think this is their attempt to reign costs in. i imagine hiring woodford compared to belongil is a massive massive cost saving for the organisers which will allow them to lower ticket prices. hopefully ticket prices should be back around the 300-400 dollar mark.

god i'm going to miss that amphitheatre

Hinee

Hinee said on the 10th Feb, 2012

i also have to mention that i think byron bay is by far the most overhyped holiday destination in australia. 10 years ago, when it was a sleepy seaside town it was okay, but nowadays it really doesn't have that much to offer that others not too far away can't trump.

smaller crowds in a smaller area so same effect. waking up in an overpriced apartment. chilling around bondi with 20-30thousand other people isn't chilling. then heading to a caravan/camping park to listen to acts on small stages. yeah trumps in every way....

Blasted

Blasted said on the 10th Feb, 2012

unlikely at belongil i would think.

anyway i reckon they were planning on a smaller more indie festival this year to ease in to the new site, unfortunately the new site is wrapped up in red tape still. this is what has allowed them to go back to belongil as i don't think they have been planning the 2012 festival with the bigger headliners that could be supported at woodford and thus lets hope they have a good balance that they have strived for in previous years. can't say i saw any of the headliners last year (apart from the end of janes) so that won't bother me.

damn will miss that amphitheatre though.

This isn't just a huge backwards step for the festival, it's a huge backwards step for Australian festivals in general. If you wanted your Laneway-style lineups and less crowds that bad, Aunty Meredith was doing a much better job than Splendour ever did at it, by all accounts. Splendour was a chance for a musical event in Australia to be put on the international radar and be considered in the same breath as some of the world's most prestigious events. Now it's just another festival trying to cater to an indecisive audience.

the last time splendour was in byron, we drove from byron to the site. super lazy, but it was only $10 or $15, and there's nothing better than at the end of a long festival day, taking a short walk into a field and straight into your car...

I thought that meant that the capacity will drop by almost half.

camping on site is over rated imho
