Music In Byron Bay

Music in the Byron Shire

Music is a huge part of the Byron Culture. Everyone plays music and you can often catch buskers, colourful rythymer’s drumming up a storm with fire dancing on the streets and in the parks.

Tune into 99.9 Bay FM, our local funky radio station that’s got all the goods and goings on in the Shire.

A surgence of music cafe’s has been delightful, where one can enjoy the intimacy of great original music and funky food and atmosphere. Not only that, but it’s world’s away form the raging hoo-ha of the pubs. Some music cafe’s to watch out for in the local paper are;

Kokopelli in the main street of Bangalow
Yellow Flower - Indian restaurant in Suffolk Park
Manipura- Wood fired pizza in Mullumbimby
Aquariva in Brunswick Heads
Sounds Delicious Bakehouse in Newrybar
Poinciana cafe in Mullumbimby
Seven @ 13 in Byron

AND there’s always new and interesting venue’s! One of the things that everyone in the world should catch are the ‘hall gigs’. Often there’ll be a great line-up of locals or not so locals for a benefit for something good and kind or just for the sheer fun of it. They often come complete with a yummy cafe. These gigs have the best atmosphere with heaps of kids, chai, herbal highs and hardly any alcohol. They’ll usually be advertised in the local paper and have funny names which all end in ‘hall’. Such as Coorabell Hall and Broken Head Hall etc...How to get there? Ask a smiling local or at the Visitors Centre.

The Markets feature a band and buskers every week and how better to spend your Sunday than to see some music, eat yummy food and pick up all your veggies and bargains in one fun filled friendly day!!!

The Doof Party could be anywhere way out there and are often advertised on flying flyers and noticeable notice boards and by word of mouth.

The Pubs are good value and the local gig guide will fill you in on who’s playing and when. There’s three good one’s in Byron and a good one in Brunswick.

After midnight and beyond we have the Verve nightclub, Cocomangas and the ever La-La Land in Byron.

The ECHO, Byron News and The Northern Star are our local papers and guides to the gigs and local markets.
