The treasured winter festival is back again. Australia has an incredible music culture that resonates in authenticity and originality. That’s what makes Splendour in the Grass such an amazing festival.
While Splendour in the Grass is fun af, if you’re not prepared you could end up reverting back to your five year old self, throwing a tanty, and praying to a shower like hot water is a god. Come prepared.
Key Survival Kit
Portable phone charger
Key ring torch (to help you find your tent later)
Granola bars, trail mix (slow burning energy is a must)
Electrolytes (key for next morning survival)
Dry Shampoo (prepare for limited shower time)
Hand Sanitiser (porta-loo)
TOILET PAPER ON HAND ANYTIME ANYWHERE (ahem, porta-loo)
Choose a meeting place if/when you lose your friends (re-visit phone charger)
First Aid Kit (ft. multiple band aids for multiple blisters)
Water, water, water, water, water
Portable Speaker (there’s no need to take a break from the tunes)
Pancake mixes – why have anything else for breakfast?
Comfy chairs/ if you have the room (if you have a ute), a dodgy op shop couch/chair can be a life saving comfort
Make your tent site unique (so you can recognise it late at night)
Water, water, water, water
Lily Donaldson & Suki Waterhouse
Prepare all your outfits prior to arriving (a good mirror may be hard to come by at a campsite)
Pack for warm and cold weather
Gumboots/ shoes that you don’t mind ruining + good socks (hello blisters)
Poncho (it’s splendour!)
It hurts to admit but playsuits & jumpsuits aren’t made for festivals unless you like being naked in a porta-loo
Outfit changes pre sunset/ pre near death freezing is highly recommended (layers are also a great idea)
A backpack for your survival kit & snacks
Our THG Picks
Dancing Days Jacket
The End Tee
Bella high waisted pants & Bella crop top
The Hills Maxi
Splendour is your chance to embrace your weirdness & glitter is where the fun is.
Happy splendour folks!
