One thing that Byron has increasingly become home to is festivals! There are several big music festivals that happen every year in Byron bay. The biggest one of these is the Byron Bluesfest. It is a five day festival which showcases some of the best folk, blues and roots music from around the world.
The Uplift festival is on in December and is all about personal, spiritual and human growth. It will no doubt be an enlightening experience for all those who attend this year.
Although tickets to festivals in Australia can be expensive, there are sometimes opportunities to be involved and either volunteer or work at market and food stalls within these various festivals. Keep an eye on Gumtree.com.au and in The Echo for these opportunities. Alternately, visit the websites below.
