Splendour in the Grass has officially started, with a stellar line-up in store. But what we’re here for is the wild outfits.

Before headline acts including Tame Impala, Childish Gambino and Chance the Rapper hit the stage, revellers are already showing off their festival best.

The outfits are spectacular, from leopard prints and barely-there pants to glitter and fluoro.

The look first turned heads at this year’s Coachella festival, when beauty blogger James Charles wore a white version.

Lots of vinyl and pleather is cropping up at this year’s festival already, with some rocking a cheekier look than others.

Most have taken some serious pointers from Coachellas past, keen to embrace an animal print wherever possible.

Despite being smack bang in the middle of winter, thousands of fashion-conscious, music-obsessed punters are braving the cold in crop tops and mesh.

Please note: crystals and/or body glitter are also a must.

The first headline act — Tame Impala — is on stage at 10.45pm. But in the lead-up to tonight’s show, revellers have been heading in early to check out the rest of the festival’s offerings.

But for those still en route to the grounds, some have been experiencing difficulties.

One visitor at a local Coles took to social media to warn others not to try getting cash out, as Splendour-goers had drained the place.

Despite festival organisers stressing there’d be no cash on site this year — and advising people they’d have to tap and go — it seems the warning may have fallen on deaf ears.

Organisers (along with Tweed/Byron Police) also promised there’d be a high-visibility police operation underway during the three-day event.

Police with dogs were already out in full force today, targeting illegal drug use and supply, alcohol-fuelled violence and anti-social behaviour.
