Channel [V] has packed up the campervan and is heading home from Splendour in the Grass – a long weekend at the North Byron Parklands filled with music, dance, camping, wacky costumes, live performances, festival food, and some of the hottest artists from Australia and around the world.
Following the mind-melting music festival Channel [V] will be serving up a one-hour Splendour special covering everything that went down including interviews with some of the biggest acts premiering Saturday August 9 at 2pm EST only on Foxtel.
Tune in to catch headliner Lily Allen speak about her latest album release and her on-stage antics, as well as interviews with Violent Soho, Interpol, Grouplove, Rufus, Foals, Ásgeir, Future Islands and many more. Plus with [V]’s access all areas VIP pass, we take you past security to see what really goes on backstage.
Always ready to get amongst it at Australia’s favourite music festivals, hip-hop maestro ILLY and our very own mullet enthusiast Marty Smiley skipped the queues and arrived in style by skydiving into the festival on the first day with the lucky winner from Channel [V]’s Splendour in the Grass competition.
This years’ explosive Splendour festival line-up included headliners Lily Allen, Outkast, and Childish Gambino, as well as Foster The People, Sam Smith, Kelis, Foals, Future Islands, The Presets, Chvrches, Interpol, Grouplove, Sky Ferreira, 360, Vance Joy, Angus & Julia Stone, The Jezabels, City And Colour, Hilltop Hoods, Ásgeir and many more. With performances from over two-hundred artists and DJs, it’s easy to see why tickets sold out in just a few hours.
The special also includes festival highlights from the main stages and the best bits from the tens of thousands in the crowd.
