Julian Assange to take part in Splendour in the Grass debate

SPLENDOUR in the Grass festival's hugely popular live discussion program, the Splendour Forum, will be back this year with more bite, offering up a tantalising buffet of delicacies for your mental palate.

One not to miss will be the Friday night debate Can we trust the media? which will include Dominic Knight of The Chaser, Dan Illic of Hungry Beast and Can of Worms, and WikiLeaks' editor-in-chief Julian Assange from his base in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.

Also on the list is a Q&A session with Australian Greens leader Christine Milne; the inaugural Splendour edition of The School of Life's Secular Sermon, on the topic of Unrest; and Documentary film screening of The Sunnyboy.
