Rain continues to wreak havoc on festival-goers in Australia, as Splendour In The Grass its day one program

Organisers of Splendour In The Gras have confirmed the first day of its three-day music festival has been cancelled.

“A significant weather system is currently sitting off the east coast and may reach land later today bringing more rainfall.”

While organisers begun moving some patrons to nearby festival grounds, thousands were still given camping sites within the Parklands area.

Attendees have described the event’s management as “disgusting”, with others saying their experience was the “grimmest night of my life”.

Organisers told those who were still queueing to turn around at around 9am local time on Friday.

In the coming weeks, the festival’s organisers will be in contact with affected ticket holders.

“Please be assured that our event team is working very hard to provide the best experience possible under the current circumstances,” event organisers said.

The festival is expected to go ahead as planned this weekend, with organisers confirming Saturday and Sunday programming will remain.

More rain is forecast in the coming days, with relief not set to arrive until Monday.
