Royal Safari

Prince Philip has officially stepped down from royal duties but the party must go on. At the Queen’s request, Sunday Safari is coming out of hibernation for one winter night only – and so should you. In our humble opinions, there’s no better way to keep warm than having a boogie to some great live music and DJs.

A royally good time is coming to you with a killer lineup including UK dance lords Prok & Fitch, sultry indie rockers Seaside, garage gang The Cinema Wristys, brother/sister syth-pop duo Niterunner and the all-conquering girl band Galaxy Girls. On top of that, Byron’s finest selectors Webber, Dad Bod, Kurt King, 404 and Safari DJs will be treating us with tunes all night long.

With a lineup like that, it would be royally rude not to! Byron Bay Brewery this Saturday from 4pm. Go to www.sundaysafari.com.au for tickets.
