If you’re among those who missed out on a ticket to Splendour in the Grass this year, you’ve probably been hanging out for winter – yesterday, the SITG 2015 resale facility officially opened, and you finally have a legit way to get yourself to Byron-hosted festival. We hope you’ve been saving!
If you have no luck finding the tickets you want on your first try, bookmark that page and refresh it as often as humanly possible between now and midnight Monday July 20th. If you want to sell your ticket (are you insane?!) you’ve got until 5pm Wednesday July 15th to submit them for resale. It’s that simple. Because the internet can be a shady place, there’s sure to be a few tickets being sold on various other outlets, but beware: outside the official resale facility there is no way to change the name and date of birth of the originally purchaser that’s marked on every ticket, no matter what you might hear elsewhere.
Vehicle passes for the festival also went on sale yesterday, and as per usual, if you rock up with 3 or more people in your car (4 or more if you’re just a Day ticket holder) you’ll be reimbursed for the $30 cost in the form of a voucher. Got questions? Find more info on vehicle passes here. If you’re slightly short of those refund-friendly numbers at the moment, head on over to the good folks at Lamule and sort out a rideshare, or if you need some other way to get to the festival, the Splendour website details your options for you here.
In less red-tape-related and arguably more exciting news, Blur and Mark Ronson have announced the support acts for their much-hyped Splendour sideshows, with Ronson announcing a stellar lineup of guest vocalists for his live show as well. The Uptown Funk-er is set to give it to you with a show that features “the best band [he’s] ever put together” with live vocals by Kevin Parker, Andrew Wyatt (Miike Snow), Daniel Merriweather, Alex Greenwald (Phantom Planet), MNDR, Keyone Starr and Theophilus London. His supports are equally hot (hot damn): Pond, Yolanda Be Cool, Tkay Maidza and Jones Jr will all preface Ronson’s sets – with the exception of the Perth show, where Tkay and Jones Jr won’t be appearing. Blur will be supported by the much beloved Jamie T for their first Australian shows in 18 years – and because sometimes life just works out, you can purchase tickets for what is sure to be an incredible night from just $99. Woo-hoo indeed.
