Splendour in the Grass reschedules to November 2021

Secret Sounds Presents the 20th Annual Music & Arts Festival
SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS
Splendour reschedules to Friday 19 – Sunday 21 November 2021

OK, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties…
 
Groundhog Day jokes aside, Splendour in the Grass 2021 will be rescheduled for a Spring edition, Friday 19 to Sunday 21 November.


 
The good news is that GORILLAZ, THE STROKES and TYLER, THE CREATOR are all available for the new November dates!
 
“Huge thanks to our headliners for being flexible and to our amazing Splendour community for their ongoing support. We miss you and we can guarantee that when we see you in November it’s going to be worth the wait!” said Splendour in the Grass co-founders Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco.
 
“We had so hoped to bring you Splendour’s 20th Anniversary edition this July but we can’t stage the event that you know and love within the current restrictions and international border closures.
 
“Since March 2020, not a single festival in Australia has been able to run at full capacity and the industry is currently operating at a fraction of pre-Covid levels.
 
“Australia’s live music industry is made up of many sole traders and small businesses alongside the larger tour and event promoters. In support of them all, we implore the government to provide some form of continued wage subsidy until the industry can once again operate at full capacity.
 
“And to the music loving public, when a tour or event is postponed we ask you to hold onto your tickets. This is the best way to support your favourite artist or event right now.”
 
In more good news for ticket holders, November in Byron Bay is stunning and you won’t need your winter woollies for this special late Spring edition of Splendour in the Grass.
 
Please retain your tickets and support live music if you wish to attend Splendour in November.

Byron Bay Bypass opened 27 February 2021

It’s been a milestone over 30 years in the making and today the Byron Bay Bypass project officially opened to traffic. 

NSW Parliamentary Secretary for the Energy and Arts, Ben Franklin MLC unveiled the plaque, cut the ribbon and declared the new section of road open in Byron Bay today.

“The NSW Government are building a safe, stronger Regional NSW and it’s incredibly exciting to be here today allowing traffic on the new road for the first time,” Mr Franklin said.

“No longer will locals have to queue on Jonson Street to get across town, the Bypass will offer a more efficient route to connect the eastern and western suburbs of Byron Bay,” he said.

Byron Shire Council Mayor Simon Richardson joined Mr Franklin in a 1977 Bay Kombi van, to do an official first lap of the new road.

“The Byron Bay Bypass project is the largest infrastructure project that Byron Shire Council has ever delivered,” Mayor Richardson said.

“It is important to recognise the project is comprised of far more than just a new road,” Mayor Richardson said.

“Some of the major construction achievements also include three new roundabouts and almost 2 kilometres of new shared path and footpath. The new shared path now means our residents can cycle and walk safely between Suffolk Park and the industrial estate,” he said.

Commencing in July 2019, the project was delivered across four construction stages.

Further construction achievements include

  • 1 upgraded roundabout at Shirley/Butler/Jonson
  • 1.2 kms of new road construction
  • 250 m of road renewal/resurfacing
  • Increased road width by 6-10m on average
  • Increased size of the Butler Street drain and formalised drainage to Belongil Creek
  • Construction of a pedestrian footbridge on Butler Street
  • 12 safer crossing points
  • 2.3 kms on-road cycleway
  • Noise mitigation works at 19 properties
  • Construction of a 200m noise wall

 

“As well as renewed and improved infrastructure, the Bypass project has delivered a number of positive environmental outcomes,” Ben Franklin MLC said.

“While 1.5 hectares of vegetation was impacted to construct Stage 2 of the project, an additional 44.5 hectares of similar vegetation is now protected in perpetuity as a result of two approved Biobanking agreements at Lilli Pilli and Wallum Place,” Mr Franklin said.

“Council has always been committed to going above and beyond on environmental matters, which is why we’ve also invested $81,700 towards the regeneration of 17.5 hectares of potential Mitchell’s Rainforest Snail habitat at Sunrise Boulevard Bushland, Butler Street Reserve and Midgen Swamp Reserve in Suffolk Park,” Mayor Simon Richardson said.

As part of the project, a number of additional environmental outcomes were achieved including:

  • 10,068 new shrubs and trees planted
  • 900 metres of new fauna protection fencing
  • Installation of a fauna underpass
  • 840 meters of bioswales to filter pollutants from stormwater runoff into the wetlands
  • 230 research hours (pre and post clearing surveys) providing a valuable scientific contribution to knowledge on the Mitchell’s Rainforest Snail. It was deemed highly likely based on the findings that the actual number of MRS in the area was larger than the previously researched and assumed number.

 

Council has conducted pre-Bypass traffic modelling, and will commence post-Bypass traffic modelling in the coming months.

The Byron Bay Bypass project has been proudly fully funded by the NSW Government ($20 million including funding from Growing Local Economies) and $4 million from Byron Shire Council.

6 Lifestyle Trends Influencing Australia in 2021

COVID-19 has played a prominent role in reshaping the way Australians shop, work, travel and live. 2021’s major lifestyle trends have largely been affected by our response to the virus and our ideas about how to best cope with its aftermath. While COVID-19 wasn’t at all a good thing for our economy, our physical health or our mental health, it has actually brought about a few positive changes in the way we live and work. Let’s take a look at 6 of the most prominent lifestyle trends influencing Australia in 2021:

1. A Renewed Appreciation for All Things Local

People have been forced to lead more of a homebody lifestyle than they may have been used to before the coronavirus crisis disrupted our lives. This has led to a greater appreciation for all things local including local travel, local food and local experiences.

Here in Byron Bay, we’ve been welcoming sizable numbers of New South Wales locals who have been looking for fun things to do close to home. Local road trips were popular in 2020, and they’re shaping up to be a thing in 2021 as well.

2. Pet-Friendly Travel

An emphasis on local travel has resulted in a trend towards pet-friendly holidays. It might not be convenient to take your fur babies on an international flight, but they can easily come with you on a short road trip.

This is yet another reason Byron Bay has been busier than ever lately; our area offers some excellent opportunities for pet owners and their furry friends to enjoy spending time together. There are some excellent dog-friendly beaches and exercise areas available in Byron Bay. There are also multiple pet-friendly accommodations available in the area.

3. Greater Acceptance of Flexible Work and Study Options

Before COVID-19 became an issue, there was already a fringe group of people who were enthralled by the idea of working remotely and traveling all over the world. Some of these people refer to themselves as “digital nomads”. COVID-19 put a damper on the digital nomad phenomenon, because many countries closed their borders and experts discouraged international travel.

However, COVID-19 did provide a catalyst for dramatic growth in acceptance of remote work. That means many Australians are enjoying increased levels of freedom to work and study from anywhere. People no longer feel chained to office buildings and university classrooms. The availability of mobile technologies has resulted in increasing numbers of opportunities to work from home – or from your favorite resort or hotel room

The recent proliferation of online degree programs makes it viable to earn a degree remotely while also focusing on other aspects of your life. You could be working, travelling, caring for a sick family member or raising a family while also studying, for example, a Master of Education degree or a certificate in cybersecurity or any number of other interesting courses.

4. The Rise of the Micropreneur

One of the worst things about COVID-19, aside from the actual sickness, has been the closure of many wonderful businesses and the reductions in work hours that many workers have suffered. This has left many Australians either unemployed or underemployed. While many of these people are searching for work, a portion of them have settled into the role of “micropreneur”. The rise of the micropreneur is one of Australia’s key lifestyle trends for 2021.

5. Top Quality Food

People have numerous options for food and drink; but if there’s one thing many of us are concerned with consuming right now, it’s wholesome and healthy comfort foods that nourish and heal the body. On the menu this year: Rainforest foods; plant-based dishes such as leafy green salads with ancient grains; bean dishes, particularly ones that include chickpeas; and plenty of coffee.

6. Reconnecting With the Natural World

Last year, COVID-19 forcibly dragged us out of the gym and into the great outdoors. While some gyms have reopened, and customers are returning to them in droves, we haven’t quickly forgotten our recently-rediscovered enthusiasm for outdoor activities. In fact, Australians are now realising what a crucial role exercise plays in mental health. We’re going out of our way to take part in mind and body activities that renew our spirits as well as providing the exercise we need to stay healthy.


Now you’re updated on 6 of the most important lifestyle trends influencing Australia thus far in 2021. We hope this information is helpful to you as you decide how you want to spend your time this year.

This year’s program celebrates the joy music brings us and the important place it has in all of our lives.

Byron Supper Club Brings a Taste of Broadway to the Shire

We all know Byron Bay as a unique and highly desirable tourist destination. The region as a whole offers a vast array of world-class entertainment options and it is about to add another string to its bow - high-end theatre with the Byron Supper Club.

Michael Cormick is an internationally renowned singer and actor with a diverse career throughout Australia, the United Kingdom and Europe. His leading roles include The Phantom of the Opera, Beauty and the Beast, The Woman in White, and many more.

Michael brings this wealth of experience as he embarks on his new role as Artistic Director of Byron Supper Club. Inspired by Broadway, the show will premiere on Thursday 7 January with two more shows on Friday 8 and Saturday 9.

“Byron Supper Club is a truly unique theatrical experience. It is completely different to anything Byron has seen before. A rare opportunity to dress up and enjoy a glamorous night out at the theatre,” says Michael.

If you've ever loved The Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables or Moulin Rouge, this is your chance to experience musical theatre at its grandest and most intimate.

For three nights only, the Byron Theatre will transform into Byron Supper Club, with cabaret style tables replacing traditional theatre seating. The night will feature five pop-up shows over three hours in an elegant supper club setting. Expect the unexpected in this submersive, intimate theatre experience. 

“I love the live element of performing in a theatre. It’s an immediate exchange between the performer and the audience,” says Michael. “I have been a performer all my life, and have experienced this in many forms in lead roles across London, New York, Paris, Italy and at home here in Australia, but to be in such an intimate setting makes this truly special.”

West End star Michael draws on his extensive theatre experience as he presents some of Australia’s most iconic musical theatre stars, along with Byron’s best local talent.

Michael leads a world-class cast, with musical theatre icons Rachael Beck (Cats, Beauty and the Beast, Les Misérables), Blake Bowden (The Book of Mormon, Fiddler on the Roof) and Graeme Isaako (Aladdin). They are joined by soul powerhouse Lisa Hunt and jazz ensemble the Sharny Russell Trio.

“The audience can expect a night of incredible entertainment. Music all night and theatrical extravaganzas that pop up throughout the evening. Also, the luxury of table service and, of course, our Taste of Byron supper platters, full of delicious local produce,” says Michael.

Bangalow Film Festival 14-23 January 2021

A trio of Bangalow locals have banded together to bring the hinterland village its very own Bangalow Film Festival in January.

An annual event, held in the Bangalow Showgrounds and A&I Hall. The festival is both an outdoor and indoor event launching for the first time on January 14 to 23, 2021. Screening features, documentaries and short films, both local and international.

Christian Pazzaglia, Ben Alcock and Lyn McCarthy all have experience in mounting film events. Christian has worked internationally as a curator and producer of film programs and festivals; Ben is the co-founder of Bangalow’s Flicks in the Field, and a well-known travel writer and marketing consultant, and Lyn is one of the founders of the Dendy Cinema chain and ex-General Manager of the Sydney Film Festival.

Christian Pazzaglia is an experienced festival curator. He has produced multidisciplinary programs and special events for leading festivals and cultural institutions in Europe, Asia and Australia—including Dark Mofo and The Sydney Film Festival. It was a walk-through Bangalow soon after arriving in early-2020 that sparked the idea for a local festival.

"The Showground's arenas and the gorgeous A&I Hall just seemed perfect for a film festival", says Christian.

A few keystrokes into a search engine later, and Christian was connected with the Flicks in the Field outdoor cinema team who continued the flow of introductions through the local creative community.

When Christian was introduced to Lyn McCarthy, the idea became a reality. Many in the Northern Rivers will know Lyn as a prolific local photographer and publicist. But as a co-founder of the Dendy Cinema chain and ex-GM of the Sydney Film Festival, her background and industry knowledge rounded out an already impressive team.

"Our aim is to deliver a memorable event dedicated to bringing the local community together to celebrate cinema. In a COVID-safe way, of course," says Lyn.

From January 14-23 the festival will light up the Bangalow Showgrounds and the A&I Hall, and will showcase an exclusive line-up of world-renown classics and new, critically acclaimed, films from around the world. The opening night promises to be a glamorous affair. Film lovers, fashionistas and anyone looking for a fun night out won’t want to miss seeing the beautifully restored version of Federico Fellini’s masterpiece La Dolce Vita.

Martin Scorsese called it, “the film that conquered the world”. An exquisite tale of celebrity, La Dolce Vita casts an adoring yet critical eye towards 60s Rome. Set over seven decadent days, we follow Marcello Mastroianni’s philandering journalist as he pursues a happiness that’s always just out of reach.

“It’s 60 years since La Dolce Vita won the Palme D’Or at the 1960 Cannes Film Festival and this year Fellini would have also celebrated his 100th birthday,” says Christian. “We are very excited to be able to open our first ever Bangalow Film Festival with such a masterpiece of cinema.”

In keeping with the 60s theme, the screening will be an outdoor drive-in event, to be held in the Bangalow Showgrounds. Anyone with a vintage vehicle is especially encouraged to attend and the dress code will be Fellini’s 60s, which allows for a multitude of possibilities from gorgeous gowns and black tie to circus characters, vagabonds and paparazzi. This will undoubtedly be a night to remember.

The full festival program will be announced shortly. As well as La Dolce Vita, patrons can look forward to the Northern Rivers premiere of High Ground starring Jack Thompson and Simon Baker, the winner of Best Documentary at the Sydney Film Festival, Descent, the Australian premiere of The Truffle Hunters (an outdoor event where you can bring your dog) and an inspired blend of classics, new releases, film concerts and fabulous events for families.

"With our local Agricultural Shows, Christmas Carnivals, Music festivals, and other major events, being cancelled this year, we're looking forward to bringing the community together, attracting visitors to town to support local business, and showcasing some wonderful cinema," says Ben.

Full program and ticket sales available from December 14 at:  www.bangalowfilmfestival.com.au
