The P.TV team will be reporting from Splendour allllll weekend long. Follow us on Instagram [@pedestriantv] for all that sweet BTS content.
Possibly in solidarity with the trials and tribulations of the Kermit the Frog puppeteer of roughly 27 years who was unceremoniously sacked last October, Lil Yachty has been toting around a not-very-small plush Kermit as he’s been going about his business at Splendour in the Grass.
The rapper was accompanied by Kermit at a number of interviews in the backstage area, but it is yet to be seen whether he’ll be bringing his amphibious mate on stage to party.
It looks like Yachty’s been chilling with his new mate since he arrived in the country yesterday:

An individual that was so inclined could maybe theorise that he feels a bit of kinship with the infamous frog:
Lil Yachty sounds like Kermit the Frog.

Or maybe he’s just a fan, who can say.
