Byron Harmony Festival is coming back to Mullumbimby on Saturday 21 March, with a special focus on the Solomon Islands this year.
With over 250 performers, many cultures from around the globe will be featured on the Civic Hall stage, including Thai, Romany, African, Indonesian and Bollywood performers. This year’s special international guest will be Solomon Islands custodian and musician Natty Dolaiasi.
Following the devastating bush fires, Byron Harmony Festival is fundraising this year for our local Rural Fire Service heroes from Mullumbimby, Byron Bay and Burringbar. These legends have been directly engaged in active deployment locally since September 2019, saving lives and homes not just in the local area but in the front line across NSW.
Fundraising efforts are being led by long-term festival volunteer and MC Tjintana Matahari, who has already organised donations of $2500 worth of meals and gifts from generous local businesses including The Balcony, The Mez Club, Bang Bang, Top Shop, Il Buco, Kura, Miss Marguerita, Dominoes, Empire Cafe, Hooked and Cooked, Lulu’s Cafe, Beef and Beach, Elixibar, Red Ginger, Iluh Massage, Red Ginger, Barber of the Bay, Orgasmic, Bombay to Byron, Byron Bay Pork and Meat Butchery, Combi, Yaman Restaurant and Rock and Roll Cafe.
These donations have gone directly to volunteer firefighters.
Keep an eye out for Harmony Festival raffles and bucket collections at local farmers’ markets during March, and during Harmony Festival Day. Put it on your calendar! Saturday 21 March, from 11am-6pm at Mullumbimby Civic Hall. That night there will be a Benefit Concert from 7-10pm, featuring Lucy Gallant (Bluesfest), Ben Jansz, Yoyo Tuki and Spirit Belly Dance.
