The family-friendly alcohol-free street party Soul Street is set to take place again in Byron Bay for New Years Eve.

Jonson Street will be closed off to make way for six hours of live music, dance pieces, kids’ play zones, comedy, circus, DJs, henna, tarot readers, body painting, an interactive art piece, silent disco and high-quality food stalls.

Creative director Renee Simone says, ‘Byron Bay is setting a new precedent for NYE celebrations. It doesn’t need to be about trashing ourselves or our beautiful town.’

2019 will be welcomed with a sunrise gathering at the Byron Bay Lighthouse called First Sun, starting at 5.15am sharp. Participants are encouraged to walk up to the lighthouse. Bring a yoga mat, cushion or blanket.
