Splendour In The Grass 2022: What To Bring For Camping Festival

Splendour In The Grass 2022: What To Bring For Camping Festival

Here's a comprehensive list of everything you will and won't need for the 2022 Splendour in the Grass music festival.

Splendour In The Grass 2022 is kicking off this weekend, so preparations are in order for those staying on the music festival’s campgrounds.

The site has moved from North Byron Parklands to Byron Events Farm (BEF), due to recent flooding at the previous campgrounds.

According to the Splendour website, the new campgrounds will have food stalls and 'the usual amenities', as well as regular bus shuttles running between BEF Campgrounds and the festival site Thursday through Sunday—tickets for which you must pre-purchase before boarding.

What Splendour campers should (and shouldn’t) bring

Below is our list of items you should remember to pack if camping at Splendour this year:

  • Your ticket: Camping ticket, Festival Entry ticket and Car Pass (if applicable)
  • Your ID: Australian Licence or Passport
  • Your own tent, fitted with a pillow and a warm, waterproof sleeping bag
  • Your own towels
  • Contactless card, since Splendour has gone cash-free (though buses will still take cash)
  • Rain poncho/raincoat—umbrellas are not allowed on festival grounds
  • Splendour recommends packing a tote bag for shopping at the campgrounds General Store and market stalls

Splendour has also provided a list of items banned from festival and campgrounds—the comprehensive list can be found on their website, but here are a few of the less obvious ones:

  • Video and audio recording devices (other than mobile phones), including Go Pros 
  • Professional still cameras—small still cameras are allowed
  • Drones
  • Bags larger than an A4 piece of paper (30cm x 20cm)
  • Alcohol brought in from outside the event
  • Open / unsealed or partly full bottles of water, juice, soft drinks, etc.—unopened bottles are fine
  • Portable cooking devices
  • Gas lanterns
  • Chairs (folding, portable, camping)
  • Umbrellas
  • Skateboards
  • Anything studded (belts, wristbrands etc)
