Time Out says

Dates for Australia's favourite winter festival has been shuffled again to July 2022

Amongst the slew of events that were called off due to the great big ‘you know what’ last year, the 20th anniversary of Splendour in the Grass was on that sorry list. 

But now, the famous winter music festival, which sees many people make the pilgrimage to North Byron Parklands in Byron Bay, has been confirmed to take place in 2022. After the winter festival was initially pushed back a few months for 
a spring fling in November, the dates have again been reshuffled. Organisers are now placing their bets on July 22-24, 2022.

The same international headliners slated for November are still on the bill, including the world’s biggest virtual band, the Gorillaz, and American rockers the Strokes and rap sensation Tyler, the CreatorMore acts are to be announced.

“With vaccine rollout progressing more slowly than anticipated, we have made the decision to move the 20th Anniversary edition of the festival to July 2022," Splendour's co-founders Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco said in a statement.

"We are confident that moving the festival to July 2022 will finally see us enjoying Splendour In The Grass in all its glory. More of the population will be vaccinated, international talent will have the ability to enter the country more freely and we’ll be able to deliver the Splendour in the Grass that you know and love."

All previously purchased tickets are eligible for the new dates. Tickets start at $189 (plus booking fees) for a single day and $399 for the full three days, with VIP and camping options also available. Check them out here
