It’s not even halfway through day 1 of Splendour in the grass and there’s already been a massive guest appearance. Brisbane’s dance punk duo DZ Deathrays just got old mate Murray Cook AKA Murray from The Wiggles up on stage with them.

This isn’t the first time these guys have all crossed paths. If you remember, Murray starred in the weird and wacky video for their track “Like People” earlier this year. The Wiggle joined the band onstage for a couple of tracks. Including a cover of AC/DC’s classic “Highway To Hell”

The surprise guest was welcomed massively by the crowd, especially when they launched into their energetic rendition of the Aussie classic. Watch below to hear a random punter yelling “YEAH MUZZA!”

There’s a good chance that DZ Deathrays might be found on stage with their mates Dune Rats later tonight at Splendour as those boys are planning a massive show. There’s no word as to whether the Red wiggle will make a cameo then however.

Whatever happens over the rest of the festival, DZ Deathrays have raised the bar for anyone else planning on bring out any special guests during their set. Be sure to check Tone Deaf for all your Splendour updates and watch Murray in DZ Deathray’s video for “Like People” below.
