As per usual, we spent much of our day at the Carlton Dry Bar, nestling up against the action of the Mix Up Stage. Giving us a sofa-filled area to rest our feet throughout the day, the Carlton Dry Bar also became a certified party zone in its own right – filled with arcade games, heaters, fresh beverages and vivacious street art splashed on the walls. Notable names in the house included Steph Gilmore, Aisha Jade, Mitch Crews, Ryan Ginns, Charlotte Best, Laura Enever and Chloe Chapman.
A giant screen at the bar displayed all the acts on the Mix Up Stage, where punters created their own DIY dance floor with the live stream featuring Lil Yachty, The Kite String Tangle and Cut Copy before a thunderous finish from bass overlord RL Grime. Head on over to the Carlton Dry Bar over the next two days at Splendour in the Grass, and see what went down on the opening day right here:
