Byron braces for splendid skies
The skies will probably be lower than most of the punter's jeans.
But if you're prepared for torrential rain, sniffer dogs and you already have a ticket, Splendour in the Grass hits Byron Bay again this weekend.
Returned from exile in Queensland, the massive festival will sprawl across five stages, a Tent of Miracles, heaps of bars and dance-tents at Belongil Fields from this Friday, July 27 till Sunday, July 29.
The international superstars braving Byron include the reborn Smashing Pumpkins, Jack White and English heavyweights Bloc Party.
Home-grown artists include uber-hip hop crew Hilltop Hoods, The Dirty Three, Tijuana Cartel and Kate Miller-Heidke.
Tips; don't try fence-jumping, stage-diving or crowd-surfing.
Security will be full-on and there'll be a huge police presence in town.
All that said, if you haven't got a ticket by now, good luck. Try
www.splendourinthegrass.com/reissues-resales.html on Friday morning at 9am.
