It was a case of ‘power to the people’ when Mullumbimby was hit by a storm, followed by a power outage, during peak hour at the Mullum Music Festival on Saturday night.

At one point the Magic Bus was the brightest and loudest thing in the town.

But, as usual, Mullum made the most of it with the streets lit up by mobile phones and buskers’ LEDs.

Inside the darkened Civic Hall, Saint Sister led the audience in a chorus of Dancing in the Dark.

Mercifully, not all the town was affected and power was restored quickly to the main venues.

Over at the High School, Osaka Monaurail had everyone dancing so hard they were almost self-illuminating.

Fortunately, the weather held for Sunday’s parade, and yet another successful weekend wrapped last night with a punters spilling out of venues all over town reeling off their own personal ‘best of the fest’ lists.

    Mullumbimby enchants, chants and transcends again. Praises to the organizers and musicians, especially those Ohio sisters.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
