Splendour In The Grass Reveal Forum, Science Tent and Comedy Club Program
Tune in.
Entertainment 2m

Podcast lovers rejoice: for the tenth year running, SITG has announced the return of the Splendour Forum, as well as its popular Science Tent and Comedy Club.

Breaking down big ideas from climate change and how to unf*ck the planet, to the future of work in an AI driven digital economy, they’ve truly got something for everyone. Love Blackmirror? Step into the dark world of tech dystopia with an AI powered (and incredibly creepy) Biometric Mirror that can read your face and tell you about yourself, before Australia’s favourite Black Mirror guest star Brenna Harding participates in a live demonstration of the tech. Huge.

Still not sure where you stand on the risk-reward and social capital of doing a shoey? Understand the science (and hygiene issues) behind the polarizing national trend in an informative Fizzics lesson with Dr Karl. Prone to finding yourself locked in fierce political debates at house parties every weekend? Take a break from the tunes to hear from Federal Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese, Greens Senator Peter Whish-Wilson, pill-testing and harm-minimisation advocate Dr David Caldicott, and (obviously) Will Connolly, aka #Eggboy. BYO poultry. Of course, you can also hear music chat with Allday, Courtney Barnett, Jacob Banks (!!!) and… uhh Eggboy, as well as well as stand up from a selection of Australia’s finest comics.

Explore the program in full here, and if you’re still yet to cop your ticket head over to Splendour’s official resale site via the link.
