Re-Cap: Falls Festival Byron Bay 2016/17

You are here

Falls Festival Byron Bay 2016/17 did not disappoint. Held over three days (31st December – 2nd January) at the North Byron Parklands, the festival was packed with great music, delicious food, market stalls, plenty of sun, a bit of rain, and much more.

The impressive Amphitheatre stage filled up each day with enthusiastic crowds dancing and singing the night away alongside this year’s killer lineup. On New Year's Eve, everyone dressed to impress for the Falls Festival Gold theme, transforming the full Amphitheatre into a dress-up party.

On days two and three, the Forest Stage featured some excellent acts from around the globe, including Parquet Courts, a rock band from New York City – they were my festival highlight.

There was also some incredible Byron Bay talent to enjoy in The Grove, including DELI, a local group that improvises every song.

In addition to the music, Falls served up some extra fun, including the Palm Springs pools, Market Stalls and the Ferris wheel. Of course, there was also a ton of exciting food options.

The heat was intense (around 34 degrees each day), and on the final afternoon a storm rolled in and there was a bit of rain. This didn’t stop the fun, and I am sure everyone’s excited to come back again next time.
