The Natural Future event that was part of the Byron Bay Surf Festival (BBSF) scheduled for this Saturday with guests David Bronner, Dave Rastovich and Dan Fitzgerald has been cancelled.

‘Sincere apologies to all involved,’ said founder of the BBSF James McMillan.

‘Just this morning David Bronner got news of a family emergency at home in the US. Unfortunately, but understandably, he will return home today to attend to his family’s needs.

‘We are very sorry to all ticket holders and the groups that were attending and anyone else that had planned on coming to hear David and the guys talk. All ticket holders will be 100 per cent refunded directly.

‘Thankyou for your understanding.’
