And music is just one piece of the Splendour multiverse! Alongside the stages you know and love, there’s a treasure trove of experiences waiting for you and your crew…

Thump. Thump. Thump. That’s not your hangover. It’s Splendour’s beating heart, The Forest! Your bass camp for traversing sub-genres and exploring boundary-pushing sounds, let the Rainbow Region’s spiciest spinners bring the doof to you. Dance into a new dimension as awe-inspiring lightscapes, playful performances and psychedelic art guide the way.

Ready to take a different trip? The Global Village is your one-way ticket to a unique ecosystem of expansive experiences. Add some namaste to your day with a yoga class, indulge in a tarot card reading, relax with a steaming mug of chai or get involved in some circus play. When you’re ready to find your groove again, salsa your way to the World Stage, Splendour’s musical melting pot serving up sounds from all corners of the sonic spectrum.

Keep your head in the game at The Forum! Sit down and listen up as some of the greatest thinkers and storytellers of today deliver an array of thought-provoking talks and panels across the weekend. Discover new ideas and new people. Get inspired, be challenged, cultivate new perspectives and experience innovation. Round it all off with a healthy dose of sh*ts and gigs at The Comedy Club, where the funniest people in the comedy biz come together for three nights of self-deprecating silliness.

Think reading your horoscope is a science? See yourself over to the Science Tent, where you’ll dive into out-there topics and learn about everything from fungi to fossil fuels. If you loved 2022’s presentations with green thumb Costa Georgiadis, the future of psychedelics and mental health, or the interactive live dating show that tested your romantic compatibility via climate values, Science Tent will keep you stimulated again in 2023!

Somewhere over the Amphitheatre hill, where skies are sparkly and utterly fabulous, you’ll find Splendour’s Rainbow Bar. Back for a second year in 2023, celebrate with a glass of bubbles an outrageous programme of DJs, dancers and drag, curated by some of the LGBTQIA+ community’s iconic party starters, unfolds around you.

For self-anointed kings and queens, Splendour’s VIP Village is here to tick all of your bougie boxes. Enjoy access to your private oasis and VIP access to the Golden View bar in the Amphitheatre. There’s also a concierge, express event entry lanes, coat check, fancy toilets and loads more.

From bubs to tweens, there’s something for everyone. You’ll find incredible performers and entertainers, babysitting services and so much more. Please be sure to check out Splendour’s Youth Policy, all U18’s must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times throughout the event site.
