Splendour in the Grass...1 week to go!

12 Jul 2019

SAE Creative Media Institute is again proud to be the official education partner of Splendour in the Grass for 2019. 

With one week to go, 16 SAE students are eagerly prepping and counting down to the most epic  weekend of the year where they will work alongside distinguished industry leaders in the fields of Audio and Film. 

Working on site with the iconic festival has afforded many local and interstate SAE students the opportunity to kickstart their careers through their Splendour work experience. Making the most of their skills and the opportunity, many students have gone on to work professionally with those they have met while on the job.

The SAE crew don’t just showcase their talent behind the scenes, Byron Bay campus Marketing Officer Dan Musgrave will be performing this year, his fifth Splendour appearance will be first performance under his alter ego Casimir at the Tipi Forest on Friday evening. 

Dan says he is stoked to unveil his new project Casimir at Australia’s largest music festival.  

Wearing many hats at past Splendours and other local industry events, Dan has been a performer, stage promoter and event manager.  

“I’ve been working with Splendour for years, been in the background a lot, in managing positions and running the show at Smirnoff bar, now I’m ready to give it a go with my solo project.” 

DJing for years on other labels Dan started out in the duo Elementals and then with the collective Club Raiders

“After being in the scene for so long, I feel that I’m finally in a position to master my craft.” 

And Dan has intentionally not released any new music as yet under Casimir, wanting instead to premier new music exclusively at Splendour. 

“I was fortunate enough to be added to the Splendour bill not on the basis of my new music, but that they recognised my extensive past experience.”  

“I can’t wait to showcase what I’ve been working on, it's been a long time in the making.”

Dan says the local community is proud to have a prolific festival such as Splendour here. 

“There is a magic that happens around the shire at Splendour, the buzz in the air in the week leading up is palpable.”

“You can understand why Splendour is the biggest festival in Australia, it has a magnetism that is hard to resist.”


 SAE Byron Marketing Officer Dan Musgrave AKA Casimir.
