There'll be jaw dropping circus, absurd acrobatics and side-splitting comedy this year and Ruby Rubberlegs will be squeezing and shrinking, her contortion skills set to astound!
We've broken all creative boundaries to bring a 'floating' BMX and skateboard spectacle, with SPENT celebrity rider Chris James and friends gearing up for our festival first. Our half pipe will become Saturday night's hot spot, with Energy Entertainments closing the night's celebrations atop with thundering fire.
Adam Brand may be one of Australia's most successful recording artists and the winner of 12 Golden Guitar awards, but he's jumped on-board and will be bringing his busking boot scoot. There'll be loads of other interactive jamming with The Lamplights, Electrik Lemonade, The Lyrical, Leopolds Treat, Juzzie Smith and last year's 'Battle of the Buskers' winners, The Scrims also on the line-up. Due to popular demand, crowd favourites Space Cowboy, Kenny Slide, Dan Hannaford, Matty Rogers and Barefoot Friday will be re-appearing creekside.
Audiences will also be captivated by the raw sounds of 2016 Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking Grommet Champions, Maple and also 'discover the undiscovered' with a colourful collection of emerging singer/songwriters thrown into the mix.
An eclectic group of performance artists will be painting and creating their masterpieces and an international menu to please all foodies will also be on offer, with well-known local restaurants dishing up with festival flair.
Karma Kids have got the young ones covered, offering a vast variety of workshops, crafts, circus, music and loads more! Due to popular demand, a child minding service will also be available. For further information and bookings, contact Skye on 0407 400 518.
