Splendour in the Grass has come and gone once again and thousands of festival goers are still recovering.

This year, Mambo made its mark in more ways than one creating a sensory overload experience covering all the major bases of a festival; the artistic liberation, the fashion and of course the music!

The Venus Fly Trap stood tall at the top of the ampitheatre looking over North Byron Parklands and provided the perfect backdrop for an insta-worthy shot. The Venus Fly Trap was based on Mambo artist Ben Brown's illustration and brought to life by Lee McConnell. 

“Our inspiration for this year was a psychadelic paradise where mutated Venus fly traps quite aggressibely eat people while they camp right near them. People attending this year’s Splendour can get lost in Mambo’s 'Wayside Rest Area’ on their way to the ampitheatre when taking the hill. They might not make the ampitheatre though,” said McConnell. 

Down near the Tipi Forest was an 8m long 3D mural for punters to interact with, created by all four artists, Lee McConnell, Lauren Webster, Ben Brown and Kentaro Yoshida

Mambo brought back the #SITGxMamboLoudShirt for festival goers who just happened to be in the right place at the right time, as well as gifting all of their favourite artists backstage.

Until next year Splendour…

HOODS - AN ART EXHIBITION
Art by Ben Brown

Art by Ben Brown

'Hoods' brings together ten Australian artists under one roof. In late 2015, Fuel Magazine® started production of this exciting project. GM Holden were approached to be involved, their contribution being to provide ten brand new bonnets, each to be used as a canvas upon which an artist would create a piece of art with no given brief. Ten street, graphic and automotive artists from Sydney and Melbourne were hand picked and the bonnets delivered to each studio. A few months later, the bonnets came back as works of art and it's these pieces that will collectively be on display at Suus. 

Created and curated by Fuel Magazine® creative director Luke Ray, the Hoods exhibition is set to be one of Melbourne's most exciting art displays this year.

'Hoods' will be taking place between 23rd July and 7th August 2016 (closed Mondays) at Suus, 12 Smith Street, Collingwood. 

Opening night - Friday 22nd July 6-11pm, open admission.
