Drawing on the diversity of Australia’s creative subcultures, the Global Village is to Splendour what Byron is to Australia – a centre of cross-cultural creative fusion, living in celebration of freedom and conscious evolution.

This year the Global Village is set to deliver Splendour patrons the biggest mix yet of Australia’s leading burlesque performers, conscious artists, circus acts and workshop facilitators to inspire and enrich our Splendid weekend.

There are so many new creative offerings, including, a brand new venue…

The Lotus Palace, by day a chai temple for yoga and dance workshops galore and by night a burlesque palace of wild delights. This is set to be one of the most opulent festival venues you have ever experienced.

The Splendour All Stars Jam Band featuring Nicky Bomba will keep everyone singing into the wee hours.

For the budding artist within you, the Village also welcomes the wild delights of Dr Sketchy’s world-famous burlesque anti-art school, with local femme fatale Mae Wilde.

In the Village Green, enter the Permaculture Dome for a dose of healthy living ideas and participate in one of our exciting Circus Workshops, and be sure to surrender to the Sunset Drumming Circles with more than 50 live drums.

The Healing Element returns to The Global Village with a wide range of local healers offering a variety of therapies including relaxing massage, Zenthai shiatsu, tarot and psychic readings, reiki, kahuna bodywork and acupuncture.

Now a regular installation in the Global Village, the Gyuto Monks will once again provide four days of peace, pleasure and powerful chanting. Throughout the weekend, the monks will create an intricate sand mandala in their gompa tent, as well as harmonic chanting appearances in The Lotus Palace.

The Lotus Palace doors open at 4pm on Thursday July 25, with a traditional welcome ceremony with local Minjungbal songman Magpie and the Gyuto Monks followed by a night of music and celebration, the perfect way to start your Splendid weekend.
