Splendour beyond the stages: Many places to enjoy

WHAT makes Splendour in the Grass the multi-layered festival it is are its spaces - all different venues that offer a variety of moods with one common denominator: a general sense of fun.

Here are three areas you cannot miss:

THE GLOBAL VILLAGE will offer a brand new stage. From 5pm each day, Global Village's World Stage will feature contemporary world music acts including Bobby Alu, Kallidad, Ziggy Alberts, Cambodian Space Project, Bustamento and more.

THE TIPI FOREST is where the locals play. Expect to take in tunes from the Rainbow Region's freshest producers and DJs, interactive art, playful performances and a totally transcendental light show while you dance under the stars with your crew, old and new.

SPLENDOUR IN THE CRAFT is that oasis of glitter, bedazzling and hot glue guns with a pom-tacular program of workshops by a bunch of the country's most legendary makers.

SNACKS FOR DAYS will include three food halls and The Truck Stop featuring a bunch of Australia's best food trucks.

Plus there will be a bar for every occasion: Moët Champagne Bar, Contiki Bar, Mo'rockin Wine Bar and Smirnoff Cocktail Bar with a different party each night!

The festival will be held Friday to Sunday, July 22-24, at North Byron Parklands.
