Splendour was glorious. Beautiful daytime temperatures if a bit fffchilly at night. Lots of glitter, hair sculptures, sonic treats, yummy eats and not a lot of pants. Haim, Blood Royal, Queens of the Stone Age and Sigur Ros were amongst the headliners of the 3 1/2 day festival. Check out the selection of pictures from our photographer Jeff (party animal) Dawson.

  1. Gee I am glad people had a great time. Would have loved to see Haim, George Ezra, Tora and others. I could hear it at my place 20 km away near Potty. just Wondering where all the glitter goes when the wearers wash it off. Hopefully it doesn’t end up in the ocean or does it? And hopefully discarded tents go to the homeless.
