  Blues and Roots Festival
by Amelei


An annual event held in none other than old Byron Bay (yeah okay i love the place what can i say??)

Tens of thousands of people flock from all walks of life, for a weekend of smooth, eclectic sounds drawn from the roots of soulful jazz and blues.

There is always a line up of world renound international acts. Past events included Ben Harper, The Violent Femmes and Spearhead- to name a few.

This festival is really an amazing experience. There are all sorts of Circus tents holding all sorts of music you can have a boogie to.

Market stalls, Food stalls, great people, happy vibes, loads of dancing and sweat..... have to see it to believe it!
