Tickets for this year’s Splendour In The Grass festival have sold out.

General admission tickets went on sale this morning at 9am (February 27), but sold out in an hour.

In 2019, Splendour increased its capacity by 7,500 to 42,500, following a multimillion-dollar redevelopment at the venue of North Byron Parklands. The festival also sold out in a matter of hours last year.

Splendour In The Grass celebrates its 20th year this July in Byron Bay, led by headliners The Strokes, Tyler, The Creator and Flume.

The Strokes return to SITG for the third time, off the back of the release of their forthcoming sixth album ‘The New Abnormal’. The sets from Tyler, The Creator and Flume are exclusive to the festival.

The full bill was revealed on triple j on the morning of February 19, with international acts like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Denzel Curry and Glass Animals also set to appear.

Representing musicians at home include Ruel, Violent Soho and Cub Sport.

Upon its announcement, the 2020 lineup garnered criticism over its lack of female headliners and general gender diversity. In response, festival co-founder and producer Jessica Ducrou said, “I’m 100 percent committed to supporting women in any way I can, but I do think there’s a difference between filling a quota to placate the critics and booking what’s right for the festival.”
