L-R, Top-Bottom: Chvrches, Khalid, Charli XCX, The Killers
Splendour In The Grass will present an extended reality edition of their festival this July.
When COVID pulled the plug on live music across the world, the Splendour team started work on a way to flick the switch back on, in an event taking Splendour In The Grass to audiences everywhere. Available on mobile, tablet, browser, desktop and VR, Splendour XR combines technology, art and music.
The gang’s all here, whether it be indie rock royalty, critically-acclaimed and genre-defying singer-songwriters, viral pop sensations, hip hop heroes, collaborators, dance producers and boundary-pushing artists.
There won’t be an avatar in sight – Splendour’s bringing you the real deal with the artists performing never-before-seen live sets created especially for this event.
The event has been created in collaboration with San Francisco-based platform developers Sansar.
"Working with Splendour we have been challenged to go above and beyond anything we’ve done before. This is going to be the most impressive virtual live event that the consumer market has ever seen, and we can say that with absolute confidence," Sansar's Pouyan Afkary says.
Build your virtual self, and move through an imaginatively embellished but faithful recreation of North Byron Parklands. You can create your own schedule, travel between stages, do some yoga at Global Village, expand your mental bandwidth at Splendour Forum. . .
“Splendour has always offered patrons a deep programming experience with The Forum, Global Village, Little Splendour and more on offer alongside our favourite artists,” Splendour Co-Producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco say. “We could not be more excited about Splendour XR and the opportunity to take the Splendour goodness online to our existing community and also to new audiences around the globe.”
Splendour IRL ticket holders will receive a discount on early bird tickets.
