Splendour In The Grass 2013tickets on sale

UPDATE 2/5 at 10:00am: Splendour In The Grass have confirmed that all 3-day tickets are sold out except the Country Club option.

UPDATE 2/5 at 10:17am: All tickets – single day and 3-day options – have sold out except the Country Club option.

Tickets for Splendour InThe Grass 2013 go on sale Thursday, May 2 at 9am. They are available through moshtix.com.au and 1300 438 849.

Single day tickets are roughly the same price as they were last year. A day pass will set you back $140 plus booking fees, a mere $5 increase on last year’s $135 single-day tickets. If you simply can’t decide which day is best, or just have to see it all, three-day event tickets are $350 plus booking fees and camping tickets will set you back $99 plus booking fees (same as last year). Big-spending folks can lash out for the “Country Club ticket” ($699 plus booking fees), which grants punters entry to a VIP bar overlooking the main stage, extra toilets, and added goodies including merchandise and access to a Country Club Concierge to help you plan your Splendour weekend. Only four tickets can be purchased at one time, and will require the correct name and date of birth for each person.

SO WHAT THE HELL IS A SPLENDOUR “COUNTRY CLUB” ANYWAY?

Speaking to FL last week Splendour co-founder Paul Pitcco said that despite problems in the past he is confident with the festival’s current ticketing system: “I think we’ve prepared as well as we can. There is a lot of experience now in the team. There are so many moving parts in those executions: ticketing companies, payment gateways, banks and having a queuing system that seems fair to everyone so they don’t get knocked off.” With demand often outweighing the 25,000 tickets in supply Piticco admitted that it is inevitable some punters will miss out. “Sadly, people will miss out, and there a degree of dissatisfaction, But we are as prepared as we’ve ever been.”

Splendour 2013 will take place from Friday, July 26 – Sunday, July 28 at the festival’s new site in North Byron Parklands, Yelgun. This year’s lineup includes Mumford and Sons, Frank Ocean and Babyshambles.

you'd be a moron to pay $350 for that poor line up.

Yea I'd rather pay $300 for 4 or 5 sideshows. The 40 minute sets at SITG just don't cut it anymore. Pull ya socks up Splendour.

So you might pay a huge amount of money to go to a festival you don't want to go to to annoy someone who won't care?

They do hour sets for the last few bands and the headliner usually gets around 1 hr 15 mins - 1 hr 30 mins. I understand you probably mean for the bands during the day but if they wanted longer sets they'd have to

a) pay them more (I'm not basing this off anything apart from assuming if bands are playing longer they get a larger performance fee)

b) have less bands playing (which could cause complaints), or have more stages (which people could complain about because of clashes).

The general punter could possibly get bored with all bands playing longer sets, especially in a festival atmosphere. Some acts might not even have enough for a longer set as well (e.g. MS MR).

Not surprising there's a lot of complaints about Moshtix, they are seriously the worst ticketing site I've ever dealt with. Last year purchasing GTM tickets was a joke. You'd log on and someone elses details would come up. They just can't handle high demand, feel sorry for those people who waited an hour in the green room just to get an error message and miss out.

At least the Splendour ticketing process is completely fair and there is zero ticket scalping these days.

Ticket reissues haven't been confirmed this year. Hopefully the resale will be enough
