Splendour in the Grass has officially wrapped up for another year as festival goers took their muddy boots home.

A crowd of almost 25,000 people came together at the festival’s new home at North Byron Parklands to experience the annual three day event.

Main acts included Mumford and Sons, The National, James Blake and Of Monsters and Men.

Sixteen-year-old New Zealand artist Lorde made her festival debut, replacing Frank Ocean who was forced to cancel due to illness.

Festival goer Jacob Harris, who attended all three days, said he was impressed with this years’ lineup.

“There is so much good music this year it’s hard to pick who to see,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to catching Fidlar play and grabbing a beer – it’s just an awesome weekend really.”

Mumford and Sons attracted a large crowd on the Friday night, delivering an outstanding performance at the Supertop Tent.

Fellow Brit, James Blake overcame technical difficulties to wow the crowd as one of the festivals final acts.

While the name ‘Splendour in the Mud’ would have been more appropriate this year, not even the muddy conditions could dampen the spirit of those in attendance.
