Local Byron singer songwriter Nick Cunningham has scored the spot on the Falls Byron line-up for this year after thousands of votes were cast for the Foster A Band competition.

Nick is a folk singer/songwriter based in Byron Bay who has released two EPs – ‘Letters’ (2015) and ‘In Between’ (2017). 

I’m really pumped to have the opportunity to play at Falls Festival!’ said Nick.

He was up against plenty of quality competition with Aine Tyrrell, Banksia, Garage Sale and Gratis Minds in the running.

‘We had an incredible range of northern rivers talent in our Foster A Band comp for Falls Byron and the best response yet from voters since we launched the initiative in 2016,’ said Falls Byron Director Brandon Saul.
