This New Year’s Eve edition of Falls Festival us underway with a warm clear day topping 29º promised until sunset.

In the lead-up, Falls Festival, director Brandon Saul and the festival art curator, Andy Mac had a bit of a run in the 51 arts precinct.

Area 51 is the lifestyle precinct, the festival within a festival, where you can sip a cocktail by the pool, indulge in a spot of table tennis/beer pong, get lost in a stone age (silent) disco, maintain your morning yoga routine or exercise your inner artist at our outdoor gallery ‘You’ve Finally Made It’. here you’ll find the unexpected.

Are 51 is being curated by Byron Bay local, Andy Mac, who said he was thrilled to be the 2019-20 artist in residence for Falls Byron. ‘Festivals are a coming together of friends old and new since the dawn of human time. I’m looking to create moments of surprise, delight and serendipity for music lovers and festival-goers’.
