Splendour XR will hit your screens on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 July. Available on mobile, tablet, browser, desktop and virtual reality.
When COVID-19 made it impossible to experience live music in person, the Splendour team went to work. Now they’re getting ready to flip the switch on the world’s biggest virtual festival.
Totally different from anything you’ve seen before, Splendour XR combines technology and art with more than 50 musical artists. A true virtual experience held over two unforgettable days.
The lineup will include artists from the worlds of indie-rock, pop, hip-hop and dance, as well as some unique collaborations. Featuring the world’s biggest artists alongside today’s hottest Australian acts.

How does it work?

Move from stage to stage to see your favourite artists, while virtually meeting other festival-goers along the way.
Splendour XR has been created in collaboration with San Francisco-based market leaders in social virtual reality, Sansar.
“ Working with Splendour we have been challenged to go beyond anything we have done before. This is going to be the most impressive virtual live event the market has ever seen, and we can say it with absolute confidence, “said Pouyan Afkary , Sansar Business Development.
Along with music, art, and festivals, XR will also focus on some more serious topics, including fundraising for workers in the live music industry, mental health, wellness, and sustainability.
