Adding fuel to the ravenous wildfire that is Splendour in the Grass 2012, organizers have just announced the details of this year’s Splendour Arts Program.
Magic, interactive experiences and more than a doctor’s recommended dose of hippy, this year’s program will exhibit local and international talent which will transform the festival into a world of wonder and transcendence, like play-school for grown-ups.
So said curator Craig Wals “In addition to the bands, it’s the installations and unexpected arts encounters throughout the site that help create such memorable festival experiences. In 2012 we will be showcasing a combination of emerging artists, international visitors and Splendour favourites.”
From scultpture to street art to comedy and performance, this year’s program boasts a wealth of talent that is bound to keep you buzzing in timetable lulls.
So without any further ado….
