Splendour in the Grass has come and gone for another year. Friday afternoon’s bad news of Sunday night headliner Frank Ocean pulling out of his remaining Australian gigs due to illness didn’t stop thousands of people from having a blast at the North Byron Parklands over the weekend, celebrities included. From Montana Cox and her model buddies hanging out (in the festival’s must-have accessory, gumboots) to Pip Edwards’ festival style and Jake Bugg’s performance, click through to see Splendour as captured on social media.

We’re trying our hardest to not get jealous, but road trip photos have started popping up on our social media feeds, meaning people are ready for this year’s Splendour in the Grass at the North Byron Parklands. Since we can’t be there to see the likes of Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean, Klaxons, Flume, Matt Corby and more, we’re doing the next best thing: listening to their music while perusing pictures from Splendour in years past.
This morning Triple J revealed the much-anticipated line-up for 2013’s Splendour in the Grass festival, which will be held at its new home, North Byron Parklands, from July 26-28. Mumford & Sons are at the top of the bill, followed by fellow Grammy Award-winning artist Frank Ocean, marking his first visit to Australia. Other big acts include The National, Of Monsters & Men and Empire of the Sun, while Aussie favourites Flume, Matt Corby and Flight Facilities are also on the list.
What a week! Alexa Chung and Stella McCartney both gave us the thumbs up, Megan Gale kept herself busy on location at her Isola swimwear shoot in Sydney's northern beaches, designer Michael Lo Sordo visited our new favourite breakfast spot, and Heidi Klum got kicky on set of Project Runway. Add to that every Victoria's Secret model (that we keep tabs on, anyway) posing up a storm: Erin Heatherton reclining in lingerie, Karlie Kloss working it on the street, Chanel Iman showing off her killer swimsuit body and Behati Prinsloo creepin' around NYC. Put the kettle on, pop your feet up and get settle in for our weekly round-up of the cutest candid snaps of the week.
Splendour in the Grass has wrapped up for yet another year, and even though we didn't nab tickets to the Byron Bay music festival that doesn't mean we can't snoop the festival fashion that was on show. Rain proved no obstacle to style, with the well-seasoned festival crowd taking our celeb-inspired advice on what to wear. Add a little on-stage magic to the eclectic mix thanks to Kimbra and Azealia Banks attention-getting ensembles and you've got one fabulously mixed bag of festival 'fits! Whether you want to re-live the weekend revelry, or (like us) just want to see who-wore-what, this street style gallery should do the trick.
It was a weekend filled with amazing sounds, crazy weather patterns and fellow music festival lovers for those who headed to Byron Bay for Splendour in the Grass. Aussie stars who attended the three-day event documented their highlights on social media, including Channel [V]’s Carissa Walford and Danny Clayton, who got face time with headlining acts such as Lana Del Rey and Jack White, and Australia’s Next Top Model alums Montana Cox and Jess Bush.

We get just as excited by a stellar line-up as we do by the fashion when it comes to music festivals. Cue loads of people watching and outfit stalking, as well as the perfect excuse to bust out our closet crochet collection, that otherwise is a little too Almost-Famous-extra for everyday wear. Pity then that we didn't get ourselves tickets to this weekend's Splendour in the Grass festival. Instead, we're putting our envy to good use by collating the top five abolute essential items for anyone winging their way to Byron Bay today. Taking our off-duty cues from the girls who know the side-of-stage dress code, Alexa, the Kates' collective, Alessandra and Rosie have kindly provided the perfect styling inspo' to (shamelessly) steal.
She's here for a series of sold-out shows, culminating with a performance at Splendour in the Grass this Sunday, so it's safe to say that Lana Del Rey is hot property in Australia. With her beehive hairstyles laden with flowers and wreaths, her bee-stung lips and cat-eye liner, the singing sensation is a walking tribute to the retro beauty queens of the '60s. We love the way Lana always gives us a show with her beauty looks — she's the ultimate performer. To celebrate her trip to Oz and her highly anticipated Sunday Splendour performance, we're taking a look back at her best beauty looks.
Couldn’t make it to Coachella? Never fear — Splendour in the Grass is just around the corner and today announced its line-up for 2012! Headlining the Winter music festival are The Smashing Pumpkins, Jack White, At the Drive-In, The Shins and Bloc Party; Lana Del Rey will also be performing. The line-up also features Angus Stone, Missy Higgins, Hilltop Hoods and Spiderbait among many other Aussie acts. Splendour in the Grass will take place at Belongil Fields in Byron Bay over the July 27-29 weekend, and tickets go on sale Friday, April 27 at 9 a.m. EST. Check out the full line-up when you keep reading.
