Byron Bay Festivals 2017 - 2018 Calendar

The Best Festivals in Byron Bay

Byron Bay is a small town resting in the northeast corner of the Australian state of New South Wales. About a two-hour drive south from Brisbane, Byron Bay’s abundance of beaches and wondrous wilderness make it a target for tourists. People kick back on its beaches—maybe they’ll take a drive to the Cape Byron Lighthouse and peer into the painting-worthy scenery surrounding the Pacific Ocean. Toss in the pleasant year-round temperatures (An average temperature around 15–21 degrees Celsius during the winter. Whaaaat?) and Byron Bay is solidified as a first-rate outdoor festival zone. Byron Bay festivals include Splendour in the Grass, which provides a profusion of internationally known EDM, pop and rock acts; and the award-winning Byron Bay Bluesfest in nearby Tyagarah, which boasts some of the best blues and roots music in Australia.
