It's Official — Splendour In The Grass Is Being Rescheduled Due To The Coronavirus Outbreak

The music festival will now take place in October.

With Coachella being postponed, it's no surprise that Splendour In The Grass — one of Australia's biggest music festivals — has been rescheduled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

In a statement posted on Twitter, the organisers explained that the festival — which was originally due to take place on 19-21 July 2020 — will be moved to 23-25 October 2020.

This is in response to both the government's recent ban on gatherings of over 500 people, as well as the unpredictability of events at the moment.

Flume, The Strokes and Tyler, The Creator — the three headliners for Splendour — have all been confirmed to be returning for the new dates in October. Although, there's been no updates as to the other artists who were being featured at the festival.

The organisers also said that "all tickets purchased for the original Splendour July dates are valid for entry on the new October dates." Or, if you're unable to attend, you can apply for a refund from Moshtix.

Groovin The Moo — another popular Australian music festival that was scheduled for dates in April and May — has also been rescheduled due to concerns over the coronavirus.
