GYROstream at Splendour 2019

24 Jul 2019

Were you lucky enough to head along to this year’s Splendour In The Grass at the North Byron Parklands? Did you manage to catch some familiar GYRO faces? Whether you missed out, or are looking to relive the mems, here’s our wrapup of our favourite GYROstream acts, Kwame, JessB, The Jensens and Hope D

 

Kwame

Kwame’s set was nothing short of astounding -  debuting his live band, who we first caught a glimpse of during his Like A Version, the instrumentation offered a whole new reinterpretation of the songs we know and love. Just twelve months from his opening triple j Unearthed amphitheatre slot,  the Sydney emcee filled the Mix Up tent on Saturday afternoon, well and truly proving he’s no longer just the man of the year, but the man of the decade.

JessB

Subarctic temperatures couldn’t stop New Zealand’s first lady JessB from turning up the heat for Red Bull’s ‘A Night With’ party on Thursday night. For her first ever international festival, the hungry crowd warmed to her instantly, cycling through the energetic anthems ‘Mood’, ‘Bump Bump’, ‘Take It Down’ and more. Bringing out Brisbane emcee Jesswar to perform her single ‘Savage’, the set marked a bridging of the pond - from NZ to AU.

The Jensens
 
After recently winning two of QUBE Effect’s prestigious prizes, Brissy lads The Jensens landed themselves at The World Stage on Friday night. Their first ever performance at Splendour In The Grass, the five-piece launched into the cosmos with their infectious blend of indie rock, funk, disco and psychedelia. Giving fans a glimpse into their upcoming debut album, the set was nothing short of bliss for those witnessing.

Hope D 

It’s been a huge few months for Hope D, having released her sophomore single ‘Swim’ to extremely warm praise, she took to Bohemian Lounge for a soothing Saturday afternoon set. Cycling through her singles with plenty of room to jam, the enigmatic set was a refreshing start to one of the most packed days the festival had to offer.
