Magenta Appel-Pye, Mullumbimby
One selfish person’s anonymous complaint so easily stops what has become over many years a Byron Bay tradition – the twilight drumming at the beach. All we need now is a McDonald’s and a KFC and it’ll be completely insipid and boring as batshit. Then they’ll wonder why the tourists stopped coming and the locals moved out.
Just who are these laws – that can so easily kill a place’s culture – protecting anyway? And why do musicians have no rights in this society?
