  1. Great video. Was at woodford so missed this, but feel like I have been there after watching Sharon’s clip. Excellent thanks

  2. There were those that didn’t “Fall in love with Falls”:

    – Birdlife – barely a bird seen or heard during the entire festival.
    – No sight of any of 50 threatened species that inhabit the locality.
    – Those patrons who when told the story of the locality were disappointed to be drawn there by the promoters and were quite willing to attend the festival at another location that isn’t a bio-hotspot (ie end the 5 year trial period now).
    – 250 signatories to our petition to move the festivals – https://www.change.org/p/hon-pru-goward-m-p-nsw-minister-for-planning-petition-tell-major-music-festivals-to-move-away-from-the-biological-hotspot-at-yelgun-byron-shire
