Kelly writes: ‘Mullum music festival is a unique experience for people of all ages, and the vibes of such an enchanting little town are something relished by locals, visitors and musicians alike. As a young local, it was amazing to see the involvement of so many from the community and the support they showed to the festival and the visitors it brought. Aside from the character of Mullumbimby, the uniqueness of the festival is due to the fact that the whole town is utilised and people could move freely from venue to venue. But one of the magical things about the festival is how easy it is to enjoy it without even going to the venues. The eccentric street performers provided constant entertainment to people and the Magic Bus was an experience in itself. Having the opportunity to go on a ride with a band and two lovely prize winners was one of many great experiences I was lucky enough to have. I loved how festival-goers and performers were enthusiastic, regardless of grey skies on Saturday.  A fabulous parade under blue skies on Sunday went completely against weather reports, showing how Mullumbimby refuses to be predictable. But one thing is for certain: the Mullum Music Festival will be back again next year in all its glory.’
