After something of a quieter year in 2011, the Sold Out signs once again adorn the website of Splendour In The Grass this morning as all tickets for the event were snapped up in just 43 minutes. The festival are reporting this as the fastest sell out in its 11 year history.

The festival, which this year is headlined by Jack White, Bloc Party and the Smashing Pumpkins, has moved back to the lower capacity Belongil Fields in Byron Bay and dropped its ticket price since last year's event, two factors which may well have contributed heavily to this morning's sell out.

Three day event passes, Saturday festival tickets and weekend camping passes were first to go, with Sunday close behind and Friday single-day tickets selling out last.
