Splendour in the Grass lock in their 2017 festival dates

Write it in your diary and start applying for leave, because Splendour in the Grass have just revealed their festival dates for 2017.

This year’s event will take place from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 July. Those who are getting in early and camping will be able to pitch their tent from Wednesday July 19.

Once more in 2017, Splendour will take place at North Byron Parklands. This year will also be the first year that the event will be run under touring company Live Nation, which acquired Secret Sounds late last year.

It’ll be a few months time before we get a hint of what the line-up will be, but seeing as the last few years have offered up the likes of Flume, The Cure, The Strokes, The Avalanches and Florence & The Machine, you can count on an A-list cast.

It’s interesting to note that this year, Splendour is not clashing with New York’s Panorama festival – which has unveiled a monster line-up for this year’s instalment – so that could offer a few clues as to who we can expect to see in Byron.
