Splendour In The Grass Is Coming To Sydney This July

Splendour in the Grass organisers have just announced an exciting new pop-up event series, bringing all the festival feels to the city! Over 9 days in July, Sydney's Overseas Passenger Terminal will be transformed into Splendour in the City.

Supported by the NSW Government, the event series will feature special live performances, bars, dining, comedy, art installations, a Little Splendour program for the kids and more. You'll also get the chance to be the first in the world to catch a glimpse inside Splendour's virtual reality festival, Splendour XR.

Acts featured on the lineup include Spacey Jane, Tash Sultana, Ocean Alley, Illy, Vera Blue, Violent Soho, Masked Wolf, Ziggy Ramo, Dune Rats and more. 

While all events in the Customs and Cargo Halls are ticketed, free activities will also be available throughout the terminal precinct including long table dining, food trucks, market stalls and the festivals favourite watering holes including Palm Springs inspired bar, The Winery, Tinder Container Bar and more. 

There will also be a bunch of wholesome kid-friendly entertainment and activities on offer. Plus, news about their Arts Program and Freak VR pop up to come!

"While we're still working towards our Byron Bay event in November and are very grateful for the ongoing support from our Splendour community, we hope that the Splendour in the City pop up, alongside our recently announced Splendour XR virtual festival, will tide you all over in the meantime," said Jessica Ducrou, Co-founder Splendour in the Grass. 

Splendour in the City will run from Sat 10 July to Sun 18 July, with the precinct open from 12 noon to 12 midnight. Tickets go on sale this Friday 18 June from 9am AEST. Full lineup and event info below.
