Byron Bay Blues Festival and Splendour in the Grass Update

It’s confirmed – Splendour in the Grass is returning to its homeland, Byron Bay, this July. After two years in Queensland, Splendour In The Grass organisers are bringing the festival back to where it all started, Belongil Fields in Byron Bay. The dates for the 2012 event are Friday 27, Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July. No artist announcements have been made as yet, but we’ll keep you posted!

There is no doubt Byron Bay loves a festival! In just over a month’s time, thousands will descend on beautiful Byron Bay over the Easter long weekend for Byron Bay Bluesfest. This year’s line up includes headliners Cold Chisel, John Fogerty Crosby Stills and Nash, Earth Wind and Fire, The Pogues, The Specials and John Butler Trio – just to name a few.

In addition to the incredible artists performing, the Bluesfest also offers abundant food stalls, market stalls, undercover chill out areas and a variety of bars. Not enough? Well, how about a large CD store, street performers and talented buskers performing throughout the day. So much to do, see and hear!

Camping is an essential part of the festival experience. So weather you’re booked to stay here at Suffolk Beachfront Holiday Park or at the festival site – take the time to read our camping essentials guide. Getting it wrong can mean the difference between a miserable few days or the holiday of a lifetime.

And if you are heading to Byron Bay for either festival, why not stay a few more days? The region offers so much to explore from mountain biking through ancient rainforests, learning to surf, diving in a marine park, hang gliding over beach headlands, ballooning at day break or simply relaxing on the beach and recovering. We have some great beachfront accommodation options including:

Our legendary safari tents

Self contained cabins

Powered sites for camping, caravans and camper vans
