Little Splendour… a kids’ festival within the festival.
Why should grown-ups have all the fun? Little Splendour is our very own Children’s Festival within Splendour! Held on a dedicated, grassy field, Little Splendour is fully fenced and secured and designed exclusively for parents, carers and their little festival goers to relax, play and unleash their creative spirit. With special zones designated for both little kids and big kids, Little Splendour has something for the whole fam.
Our Little Kidz area caters for parents with babies and young children. Little Splendour features a giant Tipi where parents can retreat to feed, change and rest up. This parents retreat is open for families each day until midnight and is equipped with baby change table, microwave, fridge, tables, benches and lounge.
The Little Kidz space also includes a play area with mini park, large sandpit, music garden, a second tipi for dress ups and storytelling with character visits from fairies, pirates and princesses, a littlies jumping castle and an art and craft zone called the Artie Fartie Partie.
Meanwhile for the older crew, the Big Kidz Zone has lots to keep your active pre-tweens entertained with sports and games, a jumping castle, face painting, henna tattoos and giant board games. From 12:00pm daily there will be a workshop program of arts, craft, music, dance & yoga for all to enjoy.

Under our ‘little’ Big Top will be live musical performances including the magic wonder of Johnny the Jester, a puppet show from Kidywinks and the Sound Synergy Drumming workshop. Kids will get to clown around with Shorty Brown and Circus Arts Byron Bay will grace our sky daily with their stunning Aerial show. NEW acts this year include Trick Star Freestyle Football Duo, Indigenous Dance and Dreamtime Storytelling, beats by DJ Sol and Kids rockers, Red Rocket 3 and there are whispers of a performance from newly formed Bunny Racket. Are you exhausted yet?!
The Moonshine Roasters will be onsite again this year and open from 10:00am to 5:00pm Friday to Sunday to keep you fueled with their locally roasted coffee brew and tasty treats.

Rock & Roller Wagons
Now, when it’s time to face the music, Rock & Roller Wagons are here to make your life a whole load easier – oh yes, they are! Get on the wagon and your kids will be travelling from campsite to stage in effortless style.
These rockin' festival wagons are exactly what you need when taking the fam bam to a festival. Heavy duty, practical, but most of all – cool. All wagons come with festival friendly features, such as pneumatic tyres, detachable shade covers, sturdy steel frames and comfortable base padding and pillows for those little one's who have just partied too hard.
Plus there’s a huge range of lights and decorations on offer so you can really get creative, show the world your style and Pimp Your Wagon. Purple festoon lights? Oh yes, chuck those on! Shimmering silver fringing? Yep, add that too! Stand out from the crowd and let your festival flow be free. Daytime cruising, nighttime snoozing. Parental heaven. Just don’t take them to the Amphitheatre. Kids, wagons and hills don’t mix!
