Byron Spirit Festival lifted Mullumbimby up last weekend, attracting locals and visitors alike, all on a path of higher consciousness.

Director Kate Little told Echonetaily that the festival grew this year to ‘what feels like a very sustainable, yet still intimate size.’

‘We had over 900 festival attendees, plus hundreds more in the free Spirit Village.

‘The strong support from Destination NSW, our sponsors, our local community, our new and returning participants, and the weather Gods converged to create our most successful event in all ways,’ she said.

  1. Look at where Mullum is at now.
    What a shame, there are so many gullible, misdirected people here.
    Next thing there will be a Steiner Festival.
