Event Details


Important information for Camping patrons to read before you drive to Splendour in the Grass


There will be set limits on the number of vehicles that will be allowed to enter the Venue car parks and campgrounds each day. This will be controlled through a quota on the number of Vehicle Passes available for each day.

** Please note: You are only required to pre-purchase a Vehicle Pass for the day you are entering the Car Camping or Tent Parking areas, NOT for each day your vehicle will be onsite. Only purchase ONE Vehicle Pass per vehicle for the day you wish to arrive. REMEMBER each person wishing to camp in the campgrounds or wishing to stay in a vehicle in the Car Camping area, must hold a valid 2016 Event and Camping ticket.

To help control the amount of traffic in and around the Venue, vehicles entering the Car Camping or Tent Parking areas will require a Car Pass or Tent Pass. Any vehicle with a valid Car Pass or Tent Pass entering the Car Camping or Tent Parking areas with 3 or more Event and Camping ticket holders inside the vehicle will be entitled to a redemption voucher to the value of $30. Redemption vouchers will be redeemable within the event site at a designated location specified on the voucher.

The Tent Parking area is located adjacent to the campgrounds. Please consider when you are packing for your trip that your car will NOT be located next to your tent.

Campervans, camper trailers, caravans and vehicles designed to sleep in will require a Car Pass to access the Car Camping area. Sleeping in or alongside your vehicle in the Tent Parking area is not permitted. 

Campervans up to 7.5m and caravans up to 6m in length are OK to access the Car Camping area with a pre-purchased Car Pass. Anyone intending to bring motor-homes or caravans larger than this will need to check with us first via campgrounds@splendourinthegrass.com

Any drop-offs of caravans or camper trailers will require advance notice via campgrounds@splendourinthegrass.com. A Car Pass is required to be pre-purchased for these vehicles to be allowed access into the Car Camping area.

Please note that once your vehicle is parked in the Car Camping or Tent Parking areas it must be left there for the duration of the event. Vehicles cannot come and go from the campground car parks over the weekend as this only adds to the level of traffic both inside the site and on surrounding approach roads. Camping and Event wristbands may be removed from occupants of vehicles who exit prior to their final departure. Please use a shuttle bus instead or call Byron Taxis (02 6685 5008).

Ride-sharing or public transport is a great way to help the environment, reduce traffic congestion and make new road trip friends. Go to La Mule or check out 'Getting There' for bus info.


While those campers with a valid Car Pass or Tent Pass for Wed 20 July will be able to enter the Car Camping area, campground and Tent Parking areas on this day, please note the festival entertainment precinct will not be open. Some food stalls will be available in the campgrounds. Shuttle buses will operate between North Byron Parklands, Brunswick Heads and Byron Bay. Bus information can be found here.

The festival's entertainment precinct opens for campers from 9am Thu 21 July to allow access to additional food stalls and restaurants. Most venues except the main stages will be operating from 11am to midnight, so if you arrive by then, please come in, check out the site, enjoy the hospitality and warm up by the bonfires in the evening.

Car Passes and Tent Passes will be emailed to you as electronic PDF tickets. You will be required to print this ticket off and place it on the dashboard of your vehicle on the driver's side. Please have your Vehicle Pass in place well before arriving at North Byron Parklands so that this is easily visible to traffic controllers and staff.

There is a ticket limit of 2 Vehicle Passes per buyer. 

The following should be read in conjunction with the Terms and Conditions printed on your Camping ticket and reproduced elsewhere on this website.

Please don't arrive between 10pm-7am as we will not have staff available to admit you into the Car Camping area, Tent Parking area or campgrounds during those hours.

If you want to camp alongside friends you must arrive at the same time.

Campsites will be allocated by Splendour staff. You cannot save campsite space next to yours for friends arriving later.

Make sure you know what you cannot bring into the campground, Car Camping and Tent Parking areas - check the banned items here. Pay special attention to the restrictions on fires and flammable items.

Don't forget to bring your ID and your Camping and Event tickets.

All private vehicles entering the Venue carparks MUST have a valid appropriate Vehicle Pass purchased in advance (not on site) from www.moshtix.com.au on sale from Monday 30 May. A redemption voucher to the value of $30 will be given to vehicles with a pre-purchased Car Pass or Tent Pass when arriving with 3 or more occupants holding valid 2016 Event and Camping tickets. Vouchers are redeemable within the event site at location/s specified on voucher. Full terms and conditions will be displayed on the Car Pass / Tent Pass.

Once parked, your vehicle cannot be moved again until you depart the festival.

Shuttle buses will run between the festival site and surrounding locations including Brunswick Heads and Byron Bay. Fares apply.

Be smart when planning your trip. Expect delays when arriving and departing as a lot of vehicles will be trying to get in and out of the Venue carparks at the same time.
