2019 Splendour in the Grass one of the biggest and best yet!

It was all blue skies, big tunes and huge vibes at Splendour in the Grass 2019 as North Byron Parklands played host to a gigantic bill of music, art, craft, food, discussion and debate over three epic days.

“What a huge weekend! We want to say thanks to our Splendour Community for their ongoing enthusiasm and love for the event. We also want to say a massive thanks to Hilltop Hoods and their whole team for heading to Byron at such short notice and turning the Amphitheatre into a huge sing-a-long on Sunday night. It’s the crowd that makes Splendour so special so big love to you all! We’ll see you in 2020 for our 20th anniversary!”

- Splendour co-producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco

The festival site is always fun to explore, interact with, watch and listen... with plenty of tasty food and drinks to try. My pick for the performance of the 2019 Splendour goes to Childish Gambino - a full amphitheatre loving every minute of it.

I'm already looking forward to what will be in store for us next year when Splendour celebrates it's 20th anniversary in 2020!

Byron Bay’s markets to be temporarily relocated

Byron Bay’s popular monthly community market and the weekly farmers market are to be temporarily relocated for six months while the Byron bypass is being constructed.

Byron Community markets move to the beachfront from 4 August 2019.

Byron Farmers markets move to the Cavanbah Centre starting 11 July 2019.

Locals and visitors who love the markets are urged to continue the great tradition of their monthly poke around artisan stalls or doing their weekly shop and buying amazing produce.

“Our markets are great cultural icons of our community and amazing economic incubators and all Councillors are strong supporters of the markets and the fabulous  businesses that trade there,” Byron Shire Mayor, Simon Richardson, said.

The operators of both markets have been working closely with Council for months, trying to find alternative sites for the markets.

“Staff and market operators have gone through an exhaustive process to find temporary sites, on either Council-managed or private land, that will accommodate stall holders and visitors and the beachfront and Cavanbah Centre are seen to be the most viable venues available,” Mayor Richardson said.

“Certainly there are constraints with the beachfront location for the community market with traffic a key consideration and this is one thing we will be monitoring closely.

“Similarly there are aspects of the Cavanbah Centre that aren’t perfect for the farmers market including the move away from the town centre.

“But when you balance the constraints with cancellation of the markets for six months this is the best option.

“Market stalls are businesses providing regular incomes for people and families, many of them locals, and to cancel the markets would have a huge impact on their livelihoods.

“Change is difficult for people but this is only short-term so I am hoping that local residents and regular market goers will make a conscious decision to continue to support the markets, and the stall holders, as they have done for years,” Mayor Richardson said.

”Keep supporting, keep loving our markets and keep the tradition of a great experience alive,” he said.

The markets will move back to the Butler Street Reserve in February 2020.
