IT was always going to be a quick sell, but the frenzy that ensued for the last hour for Splendour in the Grass tickets was uncanny.

Splendour in the Grass organisers confirmed just after 10am that all tickets for the 2017 event have now sold out.

The festival will be Friday 21 to Sunday 23 July at North Byron Parklands,  

Tickets were released at 9am AEST today via Moshtix. 

Splendour's co-producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco said they were overwhelmed by the demand.

"Once again we have been overwhelmed by your love and enthusiasm for Splendour," they said in a statement.

"We can't wait to bring you another awesome show.

The organisers also announced a fundraiser to help people affected by the recent floods.

"Our thoughts are with all those in our local Northern NSW community that have been devastated by floods over the past week," they said.

"We will be announcing a fundraising initiative soon to assist with the recovery. In the meantime, we're sending you all our love."
