Sunday Safari’s hot summer sets

Oi! You! Yeah, you. You, with your head slumped over your laptop, under the grating fluorescent lights of the office you call home for 50 weeks a year. Guess what? It’s about that time again where you can hang up the shirt and tie and put your ballet flats away for two weeks of pure, unadulterated vacay! From Hayden James to Bag Raiders, tell your Grandma you won’t be home during the holiday period, because Sunday Safari has a string of events that’s sure to keep you salivating. Boxing day sees Hayden James on deck at The Beach Hotel from 9pm. Hayden James has managed to solidify his particular vintage of electronic music to the top shelf this year. Hot on the heels of his undeniable belter Just Friends reaching over 30 million plays, he’s just freshly squeezed another one for you all at the juice bar – his new single Better Together, featuring Running Touch. There really has never been a better time to see the sonic embrace that is a Hayden James set.

Dragon Celebrates Countdown at Byron Services Club on Sunday 30th

Enter the 80s Dragon

Beach Hotel, Byron Bay | Sunday December 30 | 8pm | $31.20 | All ages

After two massive tours traversing Australia to celebrate the revered music institution that is Countdown, Dragon are taking the concept back out on the road again by popular demand for a third series, this time celebrating 80s UK chartbusters! What started as The Countdown Years, paying homage to the television show in 2016, grew into the ‘Aussie edition’ in 2017, and saw Dragon play more than 50 Countdown-inspired shows over the past two years.

The 80s UK chartbusters takes some of Dragon’s favourite songs – by the bands they respect the most – for a massive party jam-packed with hits! For bassist Todd Hunter it has been an exciting undertaking pulling the tour setlist together. Dragon cover classic hits from bands like Queen, Tears for Fears, The Police, Madness, and Duran Duran. Picking the tracks was a tough process, but something that the entire band was part of. The 80s themselves was a fun era for music, and something that has made an indelible imprint on each member of the band one way or another. The 80s was about freedom, about acid-wash jeans, bad hair, pouty lips, too much attitude. 

Everyone was a dickhead in the 80s! Go back in time and experience the 80s – Dragon style.

All ages show. Tix: trybooking.com.
