Experience Byron Bay Bluesfest

 

 

Staying true to its eclectic vibe, Byron Bay Bluesfest is a melting pot of music, style and sights. Often described as a “world within a world”, it is one of the most awaited events in New South Wales every year.

Happening on Easter weekend – 13th to 17th of April, 2017 – make sure that you book a camper rental so you can drive yourself and your friends to Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm for five days of music, food and festivities.

Whether you’re attending for the first time or a returning visitor, here are a few tips that can help you enjoy Byron Bay Bluesfest to the hilt.

Bring Gumboots

This is a common tip given to first time Bluesfest attendees. While sunshine is mostly expected during the event, every year like clockwork, a quick rain shower or two completes the Bluesfest tradition and make the grounds quite muddy. If you forgot to pack a pair though, there are market stalls you can buy gumboots from in the event grounds.

See At Least One Artist Perform Every Night

Make sure you see at least one musical performance each night. It’s a great way to immerse yourself in the eclectic vibe Byron Bay Bluesfest is so famous for.

Wear A Hat

Because seriously, what is Bluesfest without hats? The quirkier, the better! You can bring your own or buy one of the available funky hat options sold in stalls  at the festival site.
