I love festivals, especially those that combine music, arts, crafts, creative performances, and FOOD.  Death Cab played one such festival at the beginning on the month.  Splendour in the Grass is a festival held Woodford Queensland, Australia.  Yet ANOTHER awesome reason to go visit (or move) to Australia.  It’s cool and all that Death Cab is playing half way around the world, but they need to tour North America, and soon!

This year, the event was held from July 30th to August 1st at Woodford Queensland, Australia.

The Splendor in the grass started in 2001 as a one-day event and soon evolved into a two-day event in the following 2002 festival. Splendour in the Grass is generally considered to be the country’s largest winter music festival, and attracts a large number of visitors from interstate. Splendour in the Grass won the FasterLouder Festival Award for ‘Favourite Line Up’ in 2009. Splendour In the Grass is an annual music, arts and youth culture event.

Every year, the event has taken place on the outskirts of Byron Bay during July/August. However, the 2010 Splendour temporary relocated to Woodford in Queensland, home of the Woodford Folk Festival. The last year event have featured a staggering array of the world’s leading music talent including Coldplay, TV On The Radio, The Flaming Lips, Arctic Monkeys, Death Cab for Cutie, Queens of the Stone Age, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Brian Wilson, The Presets and more.

The festival has also featured local arts and crafts, creative performance and cuisine with the latest and best in music from Australia and overseas.

The festival is on the top of most discriminating Australian music fan’s wish-lists of must-go Festivals, which combined with the event’s relatively small capacity compared to many of the summer festivals, results in excited activity on the day tickets go on sale. […]
