Splendour in the Grass Music & Arts Festival has celebrated their largest onsale in the event’s history, with punters snapping up all available tickets for their 2020 event within an hour of release.

With an increased venue capacity of 50,000, this year’s effort is a monumental milestone from the 12,500 tickets sold for the festival’s first-ever edition in 2001.

The 20th edition of the iconic festival packs a punch with festival veterans The Strokes and Flume returning to take center stage, along with Tyler, The Creator who is set to bring his Grammy Award-winning album to life in Byron. In addition, fans will be treated to Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Midnight Oil (The Makarratta Project), Denzel Curry and many more, making this one of the festival’s most spectacular lineups.

Event producer Jessica Ducrou said: “The response to our 20th edition of Splendour in The Grass has been phenomenal. We know many people are doing it tough in our local communities at the moment and we’re grateful for the opportunity to bring people together in Byron through the uniting power of music. We never would have thought when we produced our first edition of Splendour back in 2001 that it would resonate and mean so much to so many people 20 years later. We’d also like to thank our long-time ticketing partner Moshtix for their efforts today in delivering another seamless on-sale.”

Managing Director of Moshtix, Harley Evans said: “It’s been Moshtix’s great privilege to be involved in this wonderful event for so many years and the incredible demand for the 20th edition is a testament to the efforts of Jess, Paul, and their amazing team, and the love that the public has for Splendour. In difficult times, it will be wonderful to see 50,000 people come together in July to celebrate music and life.”
