Splendour In The Grass goes virtual, announces Splendour XR featuring Duke Dumont, KAYTRANADA, What So Not, and more – Dancing Astronaut

Australia’s Splendour In The Grass will take its programming online with Splendour XR, a new and immersive virtual version of the festival coming to the Internet from July 24 – 25. An extensive array of artists will take Splendour XR’s digital stage including headliners Khalid and The Killers as well as Duke Dumont, Grammy history-maker KAYTRANADA, and What So Not. Charli XCX, CHVRCHES, Vance Joy, Of Monsters and Men, and The Avalanches have also received the Splendour XR tap.

Splendour XR will afford festival-goers the ability to build virtual versions of themselves and move through an imaginative recreation of Splendour’s Byron Bay venue. Attendees can create their own schedules and travel from stage to stage within the virtual universe while meeting up with other ticket holders along the way. For a taste of what is to come, view Splendour XR’s teaser video below. Tickets are now on-sale here.
