In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, we’ve seen all music festivals, gigs and live events shut down in order to curb the spread of the disease. Splendour In The Grass is a yearly festival that usually goes down in July but has been postponed until October to ensure the health and safety of fans.
But fear not, if you’re still disappointed after the rescheduling of the event, check out what one fan has put together during his time in isolation.
Splendour In The Grass has been recreated in Minecraft to keep you satisfied until October rolls around.
The creator, Reuben Gore, said that he returned from the United States and had a lot of spare time during his two-week stint in complete quarantine.
“I’d say about 30 hours total build time. We just thought it would be a bit of a laugh to make virtual Splendour during the COVID pandemic.”
Best of all, this impressive Splendour Minecraft world gives us a virtual taste of everything that makes Splendour the festival it is: the Amphitheatre, the ticket line, the bars, the Splendour iconography on the walk into the site. And to make sure that it is an authentic experience, Reuben has even thrown in a few sniffer dogs hanging around the entrance.
This Minecraft world is in the process of being uploaded onto the server in the next couple of days so people can visit. Until then, check out the walkthrough below:
