The fourth annual Byron Bay Surf Festival beginning tomorrow (Friday) focuses on all creative aspects of surf culture.
It’s a three-day fusion of ‘Surf Culture Now’, featuring surf art, photography, live music, films, history, workshops, literature, markets, design, craft, innovation, presentations, sustainability, youth art, swap-meet, surfing and lifestyle.
Organisers say Byron Bay is ‘the perfect venue to showcase all that is unique and attractive about surfing, drawing from the rich local and national surfing heritage, the creative energy and natural surfing location that is Byron Bay’.
The festival, now in its fourth year, brings together a creative global surfing community within a non-competitive context.
it’s about people who want to celebrate surfing and the associated culture including art, music, film, craft, design, literature, history, lifestyle, and environmentally friendly, sustainable developments for what they are right now.
‘We would like to see the annual Byron Bay Surf Festival become a world-leading surf culture event, embraced by the local community to celebrate our own unique surf culture, diversity, pristine natural environment and history in Byron Bay,’ an organiser told Echonetdaily.
The festival is mostly held in the Byron Bay town centre and events include art shows, live music, surf films, surf workshops and presentations, surf lifestyle markets, ‘stART me up’ youth art and craft events, ‘Freestyle&Stoke’ surf sessions, demos and surf swap meets.
