BYRON BAY’S FIRST MUSIC INDUSTRY CONFERENCE

 

Organisers of Byron Music Festival 2021 are excited to announce the inaugural community music festival has SOLD OUT.

“This demonstrates the need in the community for live music and how much people want events like this,” said Festival Director, Nick Sergi.

“I am so grateful for how many people have backed us and supported our dream to bring a grass-roots, community focused music event back into Byron town. We’ve worked really hard to bring it to life in the most challenging of circumstances and we’re so excited to share it with everyone”.

There will not be tickets available at the gate.

Part of the excitement around Byron Music Festival 2021 is not only it being the first major music festival to be held in Byron Bay since COVID-19, stakeholders and the wider community have come on board from far and wide to celebrate the ethos the festival is upholding, and organisers’ commitment to environmental sustainability, local focus, and accessibility.

“We’re determined to be as aligned with the original ethos of what Byron Bay is famous for – celebrating community, culture, and nature,” said Operations Manager, Monique Hartman.

“We’ve made every effort to instil that in every area of the event, from our commitment to minimising our environmental footprint, partnering with local businesses, people, and groups, and highlighting the connecting power of music – we certainly cannot be confused for being just another festival. There is real meaning and heart behind this. We want to do good for our industry and community”.

Byron Music Festival 2021 has partnered with environmental consultant Earthed Consulting, who are developing a robust Environmental Impact Report for the festival that is striving for zero waste and carbon neutrality amongst more.

 

“We are enthusiastic to be working alongside Byron Music Festival 2021 to help make the festival sustainable and be a leader in this space,” said co-founder Jen Kyna in a recent statement.

“We will calculate greenhouse gas emissions, enabling the event to be carbon negative, having a net positive impact on CO2 levels. Carbon credits will be procured so the festival will not only have a positive impact on the community and local artists, but also on the surrounding environment”.

 

BMF2021 has a strict No Plastic Policy on site – a rule that extends to crew and artists. In an Australian first, Blue Sky Beverages have specially branded reusable aluminium water bottles for the music festival, which can be purchased and refilled at special water stations throughout the site.

Celebrated local eco-warriors the Byron Rangers are enthusiastically partnering with BMF2021 to help patrons participate in making the event clean and green, by reducing litter, protecting the nearby dunes from access by the general public, and a volunteer lead beach clean-up event on the Sunday morning after the festival.

“Byron Rangers brings like-minded people together, inspiring the community to take action and care for our environment as custodians,” said Byron Ranger Founder and CEO, Dean Steele-Bennett.

“Rangers focus on Keeping Byron Beautiful. Byron Music Festival 2021 is committed to this vision, and we are proud to be event partners”.

The community clean up will be another way the festival shows its commitment to not only leaving the festival site clean, but the surrounding areas better than before.

Byron Rangers and BMF2021, along with event partners Byron Accom, are calling on the community to join them for the clean up on Sunday 10am at Dening Park. Anyone interested in assisting can register via www.byronrangers.com

The culminating event of the festival weekend is Byron Bay’s first Music Industry Conference on Sunday 20 June at Byron Theatre, where the public can join some of our most celebrated, experienced, and knowledgeable artists and industry professionals in profound conversations around why music is important to us all. Tickets are selling fast and available at www.byronmusicfestival.com.au

 

Byron Music Festival 2021 is proudly presented by Byron Music, and supported by Arts Northern Rivers, Create NSW, Byron Bay Brewery, The Beach Hotel, Lifecykel, McGrath Real Estate, Byon Accom, Roland, Cole Clark, Earthed Consulting, JD Property Group, Calbria Wines, Husk Distlers, Gigl, Scenstr, Bay Fm, Thrifty, Byron Rangers, Harley Graham Architects, Byronbay.com, Simmos, Sovereign Accounting, Woody’s Surf Shack, The Great Northern Hotel, Frank & Joy, The Secret Garden, The General Store, Eat Drink Catering, Wormald, Byron Bay Chamber of Commerce, Destination Byron, Byron Bay Exotic Plants, and many wonderful people in the community.
