JULIAN ASSANGE JOINS SPLENDOUR 2011 LINEUP

SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS is proud to present JULIAN ASSANGE as part of a Splendour Forum discussion panel that lifts the lid on the powers struggling for control of the internet – and what they don't want you to know.

In his first-ever public appearance at a rock music festival, the Australian WikiLeaks editor-in-chief and winner of multiple human rights and international journalism awards will pre-record an address to the Splendour Forum audience as part of a panel on Friday July 29.

The controversial online publisher of explosive classified material, widely credited with triggering this year's "Arab Spring" uprisings, will speak directly to Splendour punters about the truth behind WikiLeaks, his arrest and what it all means for young people in Australia and around the world in a video statement to be recorded just before next week's three-day music and arts festival.

Mr Assange is currently being detained under house arrest without charge in the UK, awaiting a court's decision on a bid by Swedish authorities to question him on allegations of sexual assault.

Mr Assange's mother Christine, who will headline the panel of experts including his Australian lawyer Grace Morgan, his long-time colleague and co-author Dr Suelette Dreyfus, leading IT security analyst and podcaster Patrick Gray and ABCTV'S Hungry Beast presenters and tech-heads Marc Fennell and Nick Hayden, said powerful forces had gone to great lengths to silence her crusading son and cripple his organisation's publishing efforts.

"Splendour Forum is bringing together some of the people in Australia who are closest to Julian and who are aware of what's going on behind the scenes," Mrs Assange said.

"This is a unique opportunity to hear directly from these people the stories the mainstream media has suppressed and the things they don't want you to know.''

The panel discussion, to be moderated by The Chaser's Julian Morrow, is called “Big Brother v Little Brother: From Government and Big Business to WikiLeaks and Anonymous, Who Really Controls Our Online Secrets?" The panel takes place at midday on Friday 29 July.

Splendour Forum is Splendour In The Grass' live discussion program, held in its own tent on the festival site with seating for about 500.

The program runs 10am-4pm each day featuring a keynote address, debates, Q&A sessions, discussion panels on topics of social, cultural and political interest, interviews with artists and light-hearted literary sessions. Last year’s inaugural Forum was, as far as we know, one of the first discussion programs of its kind at a rock music festival and received critical acclaim. All of the well-attended sessions revealed a genuine appetite for dialogue and debate about contemporary issues among festival-goers.

"Splendour In The Grass is honoured to have both Julian Assange and his mother Christine Assange appear at Splendour Forum and we look forward to hearing their views on these important issues,'' said Splendour In the Grass co-promoter Jessica Ducrou.

"We acknowledge Julian's courageous efforts to champion people's right to know the truth and we support him and his mother at this critical time."

The countdown is on people! Today we are releasing the official PLAYING TIMES for SPLENDOUR's three main stages and you know what that means….

In just one month's time we'll be turning up the volume for over 80 of the biggest and brightest acts on the planet when they perform LIVE at SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS from July 29 – 31.

Just over a week ago, a whole bunch of our SPLENDOUR artists took to the stages at Glastonbury in the UK – a little warm up gig before they hit Australia – and by all accounts they were on fire! You can see for yourself. We've included a few links below.

If you want to check out some amazing aerial shots taken at SPLENDOUR 2010 we've just added a wee gallery to the website. You can take a peek here.

Stay tuned though as we'll be releasing the lineups and set times for all of the DJs and musicians who'll be playing in the Smirnoff Cocktail Bar, the Jagermeister Hunting Lodge and La Cantina Mexicana in the next few days, along with all the details of these three rockin' venues. Performance times for the Tipi Forest and Global Village will also be available tomorrow.

In other exciting news, we're thrilled to announce that we've partnered with the tech savvy humans at Virgin Mobile to bring you our first ever SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS Mobile App! The SPLENDOUR App, will be available for both iPhone and Android, and will be jam packed full of cool features.

Visit the THE GLOBAL VILLAGE at Splendour In The Grass this July and take your very own race around the cultures of the world!

With dance workshops, healing arts, cultural crafts, harmonic chanting & late night world music jams, THE GLOBAL VILLAGE showcases cultural diversity and ads to the tapestry of the SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS experience.

The Temple Stage returns in 2011 with an array of dance and music workshops to awaken and inspire you, body and soul - from early morning yoga to warm up your weary body, to afternoon drum & dance sessions to ignite your inner fire.

In 2011, THE GLOBAL VILLAGE will present the inaugural Splendour Peace Parade. Find your own place in the parade - drumming, dancing, twirling, singing or lighting the way. Afternoon workshops on the Temple Stage will prepare punters to participate in this age-old festival tradition.

Inspired by the Gyuto Monks of Tibet, the parade will be dedicated to peace. Join us in the Chai Lounge to make your own prayer flag that will fly high above the parade on Sunday afternoon.

After dark, The Temple Stage will showcase short films from Little Film Big Heart plus a selection of documentaries and world animations. For session times check out the schedule on THE GLOBAL VILLAGE webpage.

This year, with SPLENDOUR campers arriving from Wednesday 27 July, The Temple Stage will be opening a little earlier. We'll be in full swing from the evening of Thursday 28 July.

Join us for a night of gypsy burlesque revelry, earth stomping drumbeats, extraordinary feats of dance genius and soulful sounds. The unique talents of Rapskallion, Sambiliscious, The Next Step, A French Butler Called Smith, Drum Cult and Medicine Drum will be woven together by our MC Mr Percival and topped off by our special guests, The Gyuto Monks of Tibet.

Now regular guests of THE GLOBAL VILLAGE, the Gyuto Monks will offer five days of peace, pleasure and powerful chanting. Throughout the weekend the monks will create an intricate sand mandala in their Gompa Tent as well as harmonic chanting appearances on The Temple Stage.

One of SPLENDOUR'S most popular chill zones, the Chai Tent is back this year with a new décor but that same warm and welcoming atmosphere. Set within this venue, the Chai Lounge stage offers storytelling and intimate music throughout the morning before bursting back to life in the wee hours to seduce you with world music grooves co-created by our house band Channel Free plus special guests.

If you're into alternative therapies then you'll definitely want to check out The Healing Element. Relaxation and KaHuna massage, Zen Thai shiatsu, homeopathic first aid, tarot & psychic readings, reiki and acupuncture will all be available, so be sure to nurture your body & soul in between bands at SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS this year.

You'll find all of the above plus Light'n'Up Lanterns, late night fire extravaganza with bamboo art from the BooCrew, a plethora of fabulous food, craft stalls and of course a few surprises at THE GLOBAL VILLAGE at SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS.
