Splendour In The Grass organisers have made the decision to move their 20th Anniversary edition to 2021, rescheduling the festival for July 23rd to 25th, 2021.
The festival was initially postponed to October this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but organisers have decided to push the festival back to its traditional timeslot in 2021, with the aim to rebook much of the line-up, with this year's line-up announcement including Flume, Tyler, The Creator, SZA and many more.
Speaking about the move, Splendour Co-Producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco said, “We have been monitoring the situation closely for the past few months and while Australia is now moving into the recovery phase, there is no timeline yet around the opening of international borders.
"As a result, and with our audience interests front and centre, we must announce the reschedule to 2021 now. We intend to rebook as many of the 2020 artists as possible and we have started to work through that process.
“We send a huge thanks to all of our Splendour community for their support during this time, and hope you are all keeping safe and well. We also send our love to all of the music industry workers who are doing it tough at the moment. We can’t wait to see you all in 2021 for the biggest birthday celebration of all time.”
The move will make Year 12 and university students happy, with the October dates set to clash with exams. Festival organisers hope that students - along with the rest of the Australian music community - will be able to make it for the new dates.
