This Year's Splendour In The Grass Has One Stage That's 100% Gender Equal
SUBSCRIBE FREE TO PEDESTRIAN DAILY
Splendour In The Grass – arguably the biggest winter party on the Australian music calendar – is about to knock our socks off next week, and one of ya fave bits of festival furniture is returning again to keep your bodies warm until the wee hours of the morning.
New experiences = the most fun. That’s why PEDESTRIAN.TV and Smirnoff have teamed up to help start conversations when it comes to breaking down barriers that put a stopper in good times.
Yep, the Smirnoff House is returning with their two-storey chateau de good vibes, and bringing with them a boonta smorgasbord of DJs to keep the good times cracking all bloody day and night.
This year, the team behind the multi-storey haus party have made a conscious effort to ~equalise music~ by booking an even split of men and women on the decks from Thursday arvo to Sunday night.
So before you get yourself into the thick of it in the Byron sunshine, let's have a peep at the Very Good DJs that will be keeping you toasty in the Lodge.
First night. You've set up your tent, scoped out where the closest loos are, and you're ready to have a little bit a warm-up boogie.
The team from ELSEWHERE are laying down the thick vibes on the first night, with a good run of artists, including a couple of back to backs (aka B2Bs) of the ELSEWHERE crew.
Get that Splendour party started with:
and Elsewhere DJs:
Audun B2B Giv
A solid lineup from the ELSEWHERE Bar team just over the border in Surfers Paradise.
Get yourself ready to stomp with Latour's remix of Tkay Maidza's 'Brontosaurus' below.
On Friday, the good folks from I OH YOU are taking over the Lodge to bring some extremely quality DJ sets from bands and artists and lemme tell ya, it's gunna be a whole lot of a time.
Stuck with a big gap between bands you wanna check out, or you've somehow misplaced ya mates, come get cosy in the aprés-ski lodge and have a boogie to:
Slum Sociable DJ Set
I OH YOU DJs
All In B2B
From what the I OH YOU lords have posted on their Facebook, it looks like they're bringing along some ~very special guests~ as well. INTERESTING.
Here's a little peek from the last time Akimbo DJs were in the Lodge.
Saturday we're well into the full swing of the festival, and the crew from AND THEN will be taking over the Lodge to keep everything feeling nice and warm.
Get down and friggin' dirty to the big party that AND THEN are bringing, with these excellent morsels of fun:
PEDESTRIAN.TV is also going to be at the Lodge on Saturday arvo, so come say hello and throw some shapes with us in the setting sun.
In the meantime, prep yourself to the tasty little snippet from SPORTS.
Sending the weekend out with an almighty bang is CLUB RAIDERS from the local Byron butchery – in that they'll be serving ya bangers all bloody Sunday.
Tell Monday to go get screwed by dancing all day and night to this fresh local produce:
Sammond B2B Shymmo
Here's the first single from DAD BOD, and tbh it sounds exactly like a sunny, hazy Sunday.
See you on the floor, punters & collectors.
