Mullum Music Festival

 Since 2008 the Mullum Music Festival has brought villagers Mullumbimby to their be-jangled feet and showcased over 600 world-class artists. Dust off your top hats and velvet waist-coats, deck yourself out in splendorous festival garb, open your arms for hugs on the street and rock on over to Mullum for a brilliant  2018 line up. 

As nourishing as a Santos Organics hot-pot, Mullum Music Festival will feed your soul with gyrating goodness. Village halls, clubs, pubs, cafes and the high school will host a feast of artists.

Byron Spirit Festival

The Byron Spirit Festival celebrates the unique character of the Byron Bay Shire, featuring workshops and panels on yoga, music, culture, dance, healing and world music. Participants attend their choice of workshops during the day and then gather together for evening concerts featuring world music from local, national and international performers and dancers.

The event is based in the town of Mullumbimby, 15 minutes from Byron Bay. The Byron Spirit Festival provides workshops and entertainment for the whole family and incorporates existing venues in the town, such as the high school, civic centre, local halls and churches.

Bluesfest 2017 greatest guitar players on the planet

Bluesfest Byron Bay is proud to welcome even more of the greatest guitar players on the planet to the 2017 festival with Eric Gales, Mud Morganfield, Devon Allman and Experience Jimi Hendrix joining the line up. Bluesfest is renowned for bringing the world’s best Blues artists to the Tyagarah Tea Tree farm, just outside Byron Bay on the east coast of Australia every Easter. This year the festival begins Thursday April 13 and finishes on Monday 17 April.

Eric Gales stands head and shoulders among other guitarists in his genre and is out to blow your mind and expand your musical horizons, in fact Joe Bonamassa calls him “One of the best if not the best guitarist in the world today”.

Bluesfest celebrates women artists

Bluesfest is world renowned for having many inimitable artists who happen to be women on the bill each and every year. Ahead of International Women’s Day, they would like to celebrate the ladies who are performing at the festival in 2017. 
 
They come from many genres and musical backgrounds, but one thing they have in common is their powerful voices and important contributions to music today. Patti Smith’s revolutionary album Horses changed the face of rock forever, inspiring generations of musicians to create loud, sincere music that could change the world.

VulgarGrad at Mullum Music Festival

The Darker the night, the brighter the stars, the deeper the grief, the closer is God’.
  The words from Dostoevsky’s ‘Crime and Punishment’ echo the visceral sentiment at the heart of tales of crime and redemption, and that of VULGARGRAD’s musicality.
Russian criminal folk revolutionary bards VulgarGrad delve into the songs of thieves, along with the punk classics of the Perestroika era.

Its been 7 long years since the criminal 7 played Mullum Music Festival, leaving audiences reeling from the stench of the gutters of Moscow, with wallets missing and ears ringing with Russky expletives.

Tim Fischer Touts Train Travel


“An itinerary without train travel is very lack lustre”, says Tim Fischer [Former Deputy Prime Minister], who is returning to Byron to speak at the Writers Festival. He describes his last trip to Byron, “I loved the beaches and hinterland but was very sad to see the rusty train tracks. I’m glad to hear light rail is coming to Byron”.

Mr Fischer, is a prolific author, including “Transcontinental Train Odyssey. The Ghan. The Khyber. The Globe.” and “Trains Unlimited, in the 21Century.” He says,” You can enjoy relaxation of train travel on every continent in the world.

Voila..A touch of Magic at Muoi's


­­Voilà – a touch of magic at Muoi’s
Story and photos by Caz Parker

The first time I heard about Muoi’s Feast was as I was being captivated by my hairdresser, while she raved about the virtues of Muoi’s duck spring rolls. I’ve since learnt that Muoi’s has claimed a special spot in the heart of many locals, for their consistently good grub and affable service.

As my dinner buddies and I lingered over the menu, on a recent visit, a neighbouring diner chimed in to help. She gushed, “We’ve been ordering the exact same meals here, every time for the last ten years.
