Byron’s Falls Festival has got a leg-up thanks to the state government, which yesterday approved an increase in capacity, allowing the sold-out event to sell more tickets.
So if you didn’t manage to score yourself a ticket, it’s time to click your fingers – or your mouse.
North Byron Parklands, home to Splendour In The Grass and Falls Festival, has been granted a 2,500-patron increase for the upcoming event over New Year.
The announcement, which appeared on www.byron.fallsfestival.com.au yesterday, also says that although tickets are already sold out, more will be available from today (Tuesday).
North Byron Parklands manager Mat Morris told The Echo the capacity is now 17,500 and that the NSW planning department secretary approved the increase on Monday morning.
When asked how management would improve operations for the upcoming event, he replied that he is working with the Planning Department on addressing noise levels, particularly the lower-end frequencies. ‘We’ll be also focusing on improving recycling, and communicating to patrons the importance of taking their camping equipment away with them.’
