The buzzing Rimmel Room will offer free makeovers, makeup tutorials and phone charging bars over the Splendour weekend! Be sure to swing past to get your on-trend, base, eye, lip or festival look.
KIEHL’S ROCKS SKIN RETREAT
There was always music playing in the pharmacy to promote creativity when Kiehl’s chemists were coming up with new products. In celebration of this heritage, Kiehl’s is bringing their Rocks Skin Retreat to Splendour. The Kiehl’s Rocks Skin Retreat will offer an in-store experience including signature facials to get you festival ready.
SULIS HOUSE OF LUSH – AVEDA
Sulis House of Lush, Byron Bay’s premier Aveda Lifestyle Salon and Day Spa, is excited to offer Splendour festival goers the chance to freshen up over the weekend. Sit back and enjoy a wash and blow dry, hair treatment or special Splendour style. If festival life has you feeling a little bit on the dusty side, then pop into Sulis and revitalise.
You can book appointments for Kiehl’s Rocks Skin Retreat, Sulis House of Lush Aveda Lifestyle Salon and the Rimmel Room via the Splendour app. Walk-ins also welcome. First in best tressed.
Trotting along to the Very Small Suburb are our friends from Sydney’s Unicorn Hotel. The Sydney Time Out 2016 Best Pub Food winner is set to deliver the best classic Australian pub food you can chow down on. And we aren’t talking your average counter meal! It’ll be standing room only as people duke it out for juicy lamb chops, gravy drenched steak and chook-raffle roast chook. Smash it down with a signature Unicorn drink including a ‘Bloody Sheila’ or ‘South Side’.
Gelato Messina is packing up its scoopers, gumboots and gelato making chefs to open a ‘Mini Messina’ at Splendour in the Grass! They’ll be churning three specially created flavours for the event (Flaming Flume, The Stroke, Sticky Date Fingers) and bringing two of their best selling flavours to a cabinet in Splendour’s Very Small Suburb. Think burnt vanilla gelato with choc fudge, caramelised baked meringue, bacon crunch, duck fat caramel, salted peanuts, whiskey puree and sticky date pudding. Not all in one scoop. Or maybe it is.
Single O is a coffee-crazed crew originally from Surry Hills, Sydney and now up in Queensland too, with beans in sweet places all along the East Coast. Single O will be bringing you espresso and filter coffee on their signature Reservoir blend and single origins, with a bit of hot choc, tea and chai on the side too.
BOURKE STREET BAKERY
Bourke Street Bakery is Sydney’s best known artisan bakery and café. They make real food from the best ingredients, the old fashioned way – by hand, with dedication and love. They will be serving up some of the iconic pastries which have made them a MUST visit destination in Sydney. Try the lamb, harissa, pork and fennel sausage rolls as well as a variety of other gourmet pastries and treats at their Splendour in the Grass pop up.
It’s the doughnut brand from Brisbane that has taken Australia by storm, and it’s coming to Splendour! From the oozing waves of Nutella encased in their ‘Love at First Bite’, to the sweet and sour glaze atop the ‘Melon Degeneres’, it’s only a matter of time before you fall in love with the unmistakable mint green box that keeps their treasures safe.
FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH – coconut water
Fountain of Youth was conceived in Berlin by the beloved Michelberger Hotel. Synonymous with the hotel’s reputation for originality, creativity and charm, the story, from palm tree to can in your hand, is an independent project. We’re super excited to bring the monkey to the lips of the Splendour crowd, who will be the FIRST in Australia to try this delicious nutritious sip!
fallenBROKENstreet is a mix up of space ‘n time hailing from the shores of Byron Bay, Australia. We are covered in the mess from our youth but we still stand tall for our dreams. We love making quality felt hats, straw hats, caps, beanies and knitted jumpers and we’re bringing our famous fallenBROKENstreet bus to Splendour. Come along and join us for a ride.
Moondust Merchants is popping up for a visit at Splendour again!

Visit to buy your iconic Hunter gumboots, divine Elke jewelry, bohemian Lilya frocks and snuggly knits topped off with new Pared Sunglasses. Moondust is the designer one-stop-shop in the suburb.

Afends was born in 2006 in the small coastal town of Byron Bay, Australia. Founded off the back of a small screen printing business that was printing merch for punk and hardcore bands, surf culture was added into the mix to create the Afends ethos that we still stand by today. They are constantly evolving from range to range, adapting and inspiring future trends based on the Afends way of life.
