“absolutely amazing weekend” The Music
“outstanding” The Australian
“Splendour is an institution for any music lover.” The AU Review
From July 24 to 26 Splendour In The Grass returns to North Byron Parklife (er, Parklands) with three monumental days of music across Splendour’s four main stages. Stop. Wait a minute. Four stages? Yes!
In 2015 Splendour’s Amphitheatre, Mix Up, GW McLennan and Tiny Dancer stages will bring you over 100 of the most awesome acts touring the planet right now. And with a program that spans the full three days of the festival, Tiny Dancer will be jumping to the tune of Australia’s preeminent DJs! From revered internationals to the freshest homegrown acts of today, they’re on their way to Byron Bay!
At some point though you’ll need a break from stage hopping, and when you do….
Flex your head at the incredibly topical and intellectual SPLENDOUR FORUM presented by The Guardian where you’ll find a super impressive list of clever and witty guests discussing myriad topics and contemplating the big philosophical questions.
Life is all about the yin and the yang, especially in Byron, so each night we throw out the festival academics and transform the Forum space into SPLENDOUR LATE NIGHT COMEDY CLUB where you’ll find a bunch of the hottest comedians Australia has to offer!
Find your balance at The GLOBAL VILLAGE where you’ll discover a heady mix of Australia’s leading burlesque performers, conscious theatre, jam bands, live art classes, yoga, healing, massage, tarot, circus acts, indigenous elders & dance workshops. The Global Village is to Splendour as Byron Bay is to Australia.
Bands? What bands? We all know the punters are coming to Splendour for the uptown craft! SPLENDOUR IN THE CRAFT is back with more workshops, beard embellishment, impromptu body painting, glitter, hot glue guns, Of Monsters & Mending and more Florence & The Sewing Machine fun than ever before! Splendour In The Craft loves you like Kanye loves Kanye!
THE TIPI FOREST is a Splendour institution, a rite of passage, a wormhole and an unmitigated awesome fun time! Head to The Tipi Forest across the Splendour weekend for a mammoth mash of underground sounds and alternative beats from an array of Byron’s best electronic Producers and DJs!
Every year since the inaugural event SPLENDOUR ARTS has pushed the Splendour experience further! With a program that spans the length and breadth of the site, its unexpected installations delight, confound and sometimes just look really cool. Who could forget Patricia Piccinini’s magnificent Sky Whale soaring over the site last year! Splendour Arts makes memories! Stay tuned for details about what they’ll dream up this year!
Tiny Dancer is not Splendour’s only new addition! In 2015 Splendour is reconfiguring the onsite campgrounds to include The Meadow a family friendly camping zone where you can set up your kit with your kids, surrounded by other young families. In addition to this our festival for the littlest punters, LITTLE SPLENDOUR, will be going totally ham this year with a tipi area for parents and babies, mega sandpit, music garden, a story telling tipi with character visits from fairies, pirates and princesses, littlies’ jumping castle and an art and craft zone called the Artie Fartie Partie. The bigger kids will also be kept busy with a climbing wall, ropes course, sports and games, a jumping castle and giant board games. Plus during the day there’s also arts, craft, music, dance, clowning workshops, balloon twisting, juggling, facepainting and a huge circus tent with performances, comedy acts, magicians, puppet shows and more fun than you can poke a pogo stick at! What’s that? You wanna go to Little Splendour too? You can’t! You have to be 0 – 15 years.
Plus there’s RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY, MISS SAIGON KARAOKE, SING FOR YOUR SUPPER (buskers stage), eclectic MARKETS and a vast array of CULINARY DELIGHTS including no less than three food halls and The Truck Stop featuring a bunch of Australia’s best food trucks. Keen for a tipple? Why not hit the SMIRNOFF COCKTAIL BAR with a different club each and every night. Or if you’re feeling a bit fancy you can head along to the MOET CHAMPAGNE BAR. More details to come soon!
Onsite camping is available for up to 5 nights – with early entry into the campgrounds available from Wednesday 22 July – so bunk in for an easy and affordable way to experience Splendour. Remember you will need to purchase a vehicle pass for the day you want to arrive, available 1 June!
While you can’t park your vehicle next to your tent, the campers’ carpark is adjacent to the campgrounds and they’ll have carts on hand to help ferry your gear to your digs. They also have an RV area, to cater specifically for vans, camper vans, camper trailers and caravans. You can find more information about camping and vehicle passes at splendourinthegrass.com.
