The music festival and performance scene has taken notable hits since COVID-19 entered the picture in March 2020. The industry itself was almost completely shut out, leaving artists to resort to virtual concerts to connect to fans and supporters. Hope may have been lost for a stretch of time, but it is certainly returning after some canceled festivals have recently been scheduled.
Splendour in the Grass is a popular festival that takes place in the North Byron Parklands that is set to take place in July of 2022. Established and emerging artists such as Gorillaz, The Strokes, Kacey Musgraves, Glass Animals, and Triple J are highly anticipated among fans. The lineup drop last week has energized the music scene in Australia.
The rise of new COVID variants such as Omicron has shaken a few nerves, but music fans hold on to the hope that festivals such as Splendour will stay on track to take place.
