Splendour tickets sell out
IT only took a couple of hours for Splendour in the Grass tickets to sell out.
Organisers of the festival confirmed the event sold out just before 11am today.
When tickets were released at 9am AEST today via moshtix, every man and his music loving dog (except for Pistol and Boo of course) were waiting online to purchase, at least three times the number of the previous year.
Splendour's co-producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco were very happy with the outcome of today's ticket sales.
"Once again we have been totally floored by the incredible enthusiasm and support from the Splendour community. We can't wait to bring you another awesome edition of Splendour," they said.
The Splendour 2016 official sideshows will be announced tomorrow morning on Triple J and secretsoundstouring.com.
Did you miss out on tickets? Fear not. The official Splendour resale is coming to save your beans.
