Whether you come to Splendour in the Grass for its amazing line-up of contemporary musicians, the stunning beachfront setting of Byron Bay or the great outdoor experience with friends, this winter music festival boasts unique accommodation and attractions for visitors of all ages.

Running from Friday July 26 until Sunday July 28 2013, this year’s Splendour in the Grass features more than 80 of the hottest acts from across Australia and around the world. Festival goers will be able to check out the likes of international artists Mumford & Sons, The National and TV on the Radio, as well as Aussie acts Empire of the Sun, Something For Kate and Sarah Blasko, among many others.

The Tipi Forest, for example, is a brilliant place to get your groove on with the hottest DJs from Australia and across the globe, while the nearby Global Village is the perfect place to check out a range of performing artists – you can even learn how to spin, juggle and hoop with trained circus performers, who are on hand every day of the festival. With the underpinning themes of healing, personal evaluation and global awareness, this is a place to feel uplifted and refreshed.

Even young ones can get in on the action with Little Splendour – an entire field packed with safe attractions and activities for children. From drumming workshops to dress-up boxes, there are tons of things to take in.

Of course, while you are in the Byron Bay area, make sure you leave some time to explore! Cape Byron, which is home to a historic lighthouse, is the easternmost point in mainland Australia and the walk here is well worth the stunning views of the beach and out to the Pacific from the top.
