Byron Bay is an incredible place full of creativity, spirit and soul. Throughout the year there is always something going on that involves music; whether that be the open mic night at Byron Bay Brewery on a Wednesday, the live music every night at the Railway Bar or one for the many annual festivals that take part here in our beautiful region.
Over the Easter break we are blessed with Blues Fest, a 5 day long festival that showcases Blues and Roots music from around the world.
In late April the Byron Bay International Fashion Festival is a big hit and showcases local talent on the catwalk.
Shortly after that we have the Renew Fest in May. This festival celebrates all things renewable - something that the Byron Shire community is really passionate about.
In July we have Splendour In The Grass. This is a 50,000 capacity, 3 day music festival similar to Coachella in the United States.
In August the Byron Writers Festival hits town. This is the perfect festival for aspiring writers and draws many talented, published authors to speak over the multi-day festival.
For the like of all film fanatics, Byron hosts the Byron Bay Film Festival in early November, followed by the Mullum Music Festival.
Then to finish the year off you don't want to miss Falls Festival. Run by the same company as Splendour In The Grass, this music event brings live music acts from all over the world to celebrate the new year with a bang!
