Your only chance to get Splendour locals tickets

NORTHERN Rivers music fans have a chance to get tickets before everyone else for the 20th version of Splendour in the Grass.

Tyler, The Creator, Midnight Oil with new music, Flume, Denzel Curry, The Strokes and more are part of a strong line up announced for the 2020 version of the festival.

The locals sale will be held this Sunday, February 23, at The Northern Hotel, 35/43 Jonson St, Byron Bay, from 10am to 4pm.

Everyone living in the postcodes 2478 through to (and including) 2490 will get an opportunity to buy tickets to this year’s festival before they go on sale to the general public.

Purchasers will need to show valid photo ID showing their home address/postcode. They will be able to buy event and camping tickets for up to four people.

Splendour organisers confirmed to The Northern Star that Alstonville area residents will be also allowed to purchase tickets, despite being in the 2477 postcode.

“Alstonville people can come to the sale, tickets will be available to them,” a spokesperson said.
