Northern Rivers Flood Fundraiser

50 x Flood Relief Gold Passes (18+ only) To Be Auctioned
Bidding open from 9:00am Tue 2 May to 9:00pm Fri 5 May AEST
A few weeks ago, the day after Splendour announced its 2017 lineup, the Northern Rivers area of NSW was devastated by flooding in the wake of ex-tropical Cyclone Debbie. Homes, businesses, schools and community spaces were destroyed and the emotional toll for the whole region has been immense.
While the flood waters have now subsided and the clean up is underway, the impact that this unprecedented weather event has had on communities across the Lismore, Byron and Tweed Shires is incalculable.
Today Splendour in the Grass is announcing a fundraising initiative to assist with the recovery across the region.
“Splendour is proud to call Northern NSW home and many of our event team live and operate businesses across the Lismore, Byron and Tweed Shires. It has been heartbreaking to see the flood damage on such a huge scale and also to hear so many stories of loss. We hope that this fundraising initiative will provide assistance to those who need it most.” said Splendour in the Grass co-producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco.
From 9am Tuesday 2 May to 9pm Friday 5 May (AEST) 50 x special Flood Relief Gold Passes for Splendour in the Grass 2017 will be released for sale via auction here. These passes are not available to the general public except for this one time release.
A Flood Relief Gold Pass means you’ll do Splendour in the Grass 2017 in style! It includes access to Splendour’s Gold Bar (VIP vibes), Amphitheatre side of stage viewing and also the Golden View Bar, overlooking all the main stage action.
The auction will run each day from 9:00am to 9:00pm with a fresh batch of Flood Relief Gold Passes to be released each morning, each with a $500 reserve. Auction winners will be advised each night.
Please note that these passes are 18+ and for the Event only. They are not transferable. You must enter your full name (as on ID) and date of birth when you bid. Onsite camping is no longer available but you can check out other accommodation options here.
So if you’re keen to do Splendour like a VIP whilst also reaping maximum karma points then from 9am Tuesday 2 May head here, get in on the bidding action and give it your best shot!
Now, we know we’re always telling everyone not to purchase tickets from auction sites. That warning still stands. There are only 50 of these Flood Relief Gold Passes available and they are not transferable. It’s a one time offer and only accessible via splendourinthegrass.com. Do not purchase tickets or passes from any other auction site. Splendour tickets include the name and date of birth of the purchaser. This is checked against your ID at the festival gates. There is NO facility in place that allows a ticket holder to change the name and date of birth on a ticket and transfer it to another person.
100% of the net proceeds raised by the auction of these 50 x Flood Relief Gold Passes will be donated to the following flood appeals.
“Times of crisis make us connect even more to our community. Businesses, council, organisations and the community become one in our actions and responses to our great challenges. I'm stoked to learn of our home grown festival and its staff adding to this response - especially for those in Byron's north who have been hit hard and largely forgotten so far by the Federal government. Good on ya Splendour!” Byron Shire Mayor – Simon Richardson.
“We are thrilled that Splendour in the Grass has come on board to help our flood appeal and our community,” Lismore Mayor Isaac Smith said.
“The level of devastation left by this flood was unprecedented and it will take weeks and months for our city and our community to recover. The Lismore Flood Appeal funds will help those worst-affected by the natural disaster to get back on their feet and rebuild their lives.”
“100% of funds raised by the Mayor Appeal Fund will be distributed to local residents and businesses affected by the floods – there are no administration fees” said Mayor of Tweed Katie Milne.
“We will be appointing an independent Committee, who will join me and Council’s Internal Auditor, to review applications for assistance. The priority focus will be on those people and businesses who have limited access or options to insurance claims, funding or grants and due to this are more likely to slip through the gaps.”
If you already have a ticket but want to donate some money to the appeal – here are some handy links and please give if you can:

On vibe patrol are the regions most respected DJs and producers, spinning a diverse and dance-inducing collection of beats well into the night.

Conveniently timed to start just after your morning caffeine fix, from 10:00am daily you can join some of the greatest forward thinkers from near and far as they debate, discuss and get downright philosophical on yo’ ass, pondering a whole host of pressing and relevant issues.
