Humans of Splendour: Meet The People Who Turn The Parkland Into A Party

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.

Splendour In the Grass is nothing without the people. Humans are what make the festival experience unique, and make the whole thing a lot more enjoyable. You don’t wanna be sitting out there on your own, how will you people-watch?

It’s the place where you’ll find people wearing their absolute best get-ups, experimenting with their image and being their best selves.

We set out to find the folks that make Splendour what it is. From incredible outfits to people that are actively helping to take care of the land that we all come to meet and party once a year, these are the Humans Of Splendour, and they make the festival come alive.

“I’ve planned three outfits, but I might need five.”

“This is my third time doing drag makeup, and the first time I’ve worn it outside my house.”

“Killer whales kill for fun.”
