Splendour In The Grass announce world-first immersive virtual music festival

This July, Splendour is bringing the festival to you!

Normally Australia’s three-day winter music festival extravaganza Splendour In The Grass requires a trip across the ditch to Byron Bay, but this July things are looking a little different – enter Splendour XR.

Taking place on the traditional Splendour In The Grass weekend, in a world first, the team are creating an extended reality version of the festival – and the lineup is incredible.

Find tickets

Taking place across two huge days, more than 50 of your favourite artists from Australia and around the globe will be beaming directly into your home. We’ve got indie rock royalty, critically-acclaimed and genre-defying singer-songwriters, viral pop sensations, hip-hop heroes and sought after collaborators, pioneering dance producers and artists who push way beyond boundaries into the unknown.

And they’ll all be performing never-before-seen live sets created especially for this global online event. 

Splendour XR: A World First Immersive Virtual Music Festival Experience


Build your virtual self and move through an imaginatively embellished but faithful recreation of Splendour’s Byron Bay site. And just like Splendour IRL, you’ll create your own schedule, travel from stage to stage to watch your favourite artists, and [virtually] meet up with your mates along the way.

Kick off your Splendour XR day with yoga at Global Village and expand your mental bandwidth at Splendour Forum. Kids getting in your grill? Set those rug rats up with Little Splendour and buy yourself some chill time. Then dive in all over again!

Available on mobile, tablet, browser, desktop and VR, Splendour XR combines technology, art, and your favourite music artists, in a true virtual Splendour in the Grass festival experience.

Splendour XR will stream into a screen near you on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 July 2021. Tickets are on sale now via Moshtix.
