Held over three days in June just north of the surfer town of Byron Bay, Splendour in the Grass is Australia's largest winter music festival. Attracting an international crowd of 30,000, the festival features an impressive line-up of up-and-coming artists and big-name stars -- everyone from Coldplay to Kanye have been played here -- on multiple stages.
Started as a one-day even in 2001, it has since evolved into the three-day extravaganza it is, and there are options for camping on site. Also note, it can (read usually is) cold and wet. Expect to get muddy, and make sure to bring warm clothes, rain gear and boots.
