The Daily Splendour Returns for 2018!


Why do they keep letting us do this thing?

Because like your friendly neighbourhood postman, come rain, hail, hangovers, lost marbles and tight deadlines, we always deliver. We’re pleased to announce that we’re making our big return to Australia’s best festival, Splendour in the Grass, to bring readers a side of entertainment with their morning cup o’ joe.

The Daily Splendour, as we’ve coined our festival publication, is SITG’s beloved foghorn, the go-to guide for everything you need to see around the grounds, the insights into the biggest and best homegrown and international acts, and so, so much more. The tales and insights into the rich and famous may seem well beyond our accustomed level of glamour and you’re right—after speaking with some of the festival’s biggest acts we will return to our shed out in the backstage area, continue to tap away at our keys, and sustain ourselves solely on a diet of fried chicken and warm beer.

To get us well and truly juiced up for the weekend ahead, we’ve compiled a Splendour in the Grass playlist over on our curator’s page at Apple Music. We’ve got MGMT, we’ve got Kendrick, we’ve got Lord Huron, we’ve got so many delicious tunes you’ll be chomping at the bit for a ticket but alas—they’re sold out. Doesn’t mean you can’t tag along for the ride though, right?

The Daily Splendour is available at the SITG campgrounds, at festival bars and stands, and at select cafes, pubs and retailers in Byron. Or, if you’re playing along at home, you can read every issue, new and old, right here.
