Splendour in the Grass has announced it will be postponing its 20th-anniversary event until next year.
The rescheduled festival is slated to take place in July 2021, exactly a year after it was initially due to occur.
No Splendour for 2020: Splendour in the Grass has announced they will be rescheduling the festival’s 20th-anniversary edition until July 2021.
Following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic and the ensuing lockdown, the festival had originally been postponed until October of this year. However, due to circumstances including the indefinite closure of the country’s borders, the festival has now decided to postpone until next year.
Speaking in a statement, Splendour in the Grass Co-Producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco described: “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,” they continued. “We intend to rebook as many of the 2020 artists as possible and we have started to work through that process.”
