One of Australia's favourite music festivals, 'Splendour In The Grass' is back again for another year.
The lineup includes top artists such as Powderfinger, Kaiser Cheifs, Lily Allen, Sarah Blasko, Grinspoon, Arctic Monkeys, Hilltop Hoods, The Shins, The Klaxons, Josh Pyke and Bloc Party!
Organisers of the 2 day event have this year introduced their 'Green Ticket Initiative'. Punters can purchase a 'green ticket' for an additional $3.50 to offset the carbon emissions generated from travel to and from the event. As stated in their press release, "'Splendour' has always recognised the importance of protecting the environment while putting on a great show. For the past two years 'Splendour' has offset 100% of its carbon emissions associated with running the show."
