Byron Latin Fiesta has floor space for plenty of social dancing. Photo supplied.

Festival or fiesta, Byron Bay certainly knows how to throw a good party, and next month the 13th Annual Byron Latin Fiesta is planning to set the town on fire.

The event will see a series of Latin Dance workshops and parties with international, national and local instructors and performers strutting their wiggly stuff. Beginners and seasoned dancers alike will find this event way too much fun.

Highlights of this year’s fiesta are international artists Sabiha with Dominican Bachata and ladies style dance, Azzedine with Urban Kiz and Kizomba Musicality, and Umberto with Salsa and Mambo.

No Latin dance event comes without music – the fiesta will feature two bands – El Timbon playing the Cuban Salsa and Timba, and Gonzalo Porta playing Salsa, Bachata, Cha Cha Cha and more.

There will also be a gazillion DJs to keep the party rolling and plenty of room for social dancing.
