Splendour XR is bounding into our homes on July 24th and 25th as the world’s first immersive virtual music festival, all the way from down under.

Splendour in the Grass is thrilled to introduce Splendour XR, a bold and world first extended reality edition of your favorite Aussie festival. It’s online, priced to be affordable and It’s unreal!

Always the innovators, when COVID pulled the plug on live music around the world, team Splendour set to work and is now preparing to flick the switch on a world first online experience, unlike anything you’ve seen to date, that will take Splendour in the Grass to audiences around the globe. The festival will be available on mobile, tablet, browser, desktop and VR, Splendour XR combines technology, art and over 50 of your favorite music artists, in a true virtual Splendour in the Grass festival experience rolled out over two days.
Splendour XR will feature 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, will perform across Splendour XR’s stages alongside the hottest Australian acts of the moment. You can purchase your tickets here.

With single user tickets available from $19.99 for a single day/$34.99 for both days and with a $2.50 discount for Splendour in the Grass existing IRL ticket holders, punters can dive into Splendour XR from the comfort of their couch and watch with family and friends from across the globe or purchase an XR Party Pack and create their own Splendour XR house party. 
You can build your virtual self and move through an imaginatively embellished but faithful recreation of Splendour’s Byron Bay venue. And just like Splendour IRL, you’ll create your own schedule, travel from stage to stage to watch your favorite artists and all while virtually meeting up and partying 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!

Alongside the music, art and festival feels, XR will also hone in on some more serious topics, like raising funds for live music industry workers, mental health and wellbeing, and sustainability. Splendour XR will include an online medical centre to assist any patrons who are struggling with their mental health in this Covid world.
