Revellers made sure to put their best fashion foot forward and this year, everything was all about making the most outrageous statement & showing off their festival best.

The already jampacked yearly event is set to become a lot more crowded in the coming years.
In March of this year, the New South Wales Independent Planning Commission acknowledged approval to let Splendour in the Grass increase from its recent maximum capacity of 35,000 participants per day to 42,500, and eventually to 50,000, provided it complies with several conditions along the way.
Every festival can now be staged from four to five days!
Additionally, the venue will be allowed to present three “medium” event days with capacity of 25,000 fans, five lesser community event days for up to 5000 fans, and two “minor” event days for up to 1500 fans.
That’s a whopping 20 event days annually which is more than double the number granted under the trial period that started back in 2012.
Stay tuned for more exciting news about this.
