Byron Youth Service (BYS) says it is proud to be partnering with Byron Music to host the first ever Youth Stage event at the Byron Music Festival, to be held around the CBD and beachfront from June 18 to 20.

Music program co-ordinator at The YAC, Lindy Lou Smith, said Sunday’s free event at the YAC on Gilmore Crescent is the next step in a renewed music program for young people in the community.

‘This is a great opportunity for us to showcase the amazing talented young people in music, arts and the media and a chance for the broader community to enjoy what the youth of Byron have to offer’, she said.

She says there will be food and drink stalls.

The event starts with a performance by Byron’s own Taiko Drumming, a Welcome to Country from local Arawkal representative Delta Kay, live performances by nine local young acts, a livestream from YAC radio and BayFm and the talented young dancers from Dance Lab Studios.

‘Additionally there will be a live interview with Byron locals, Ben Gordon and Winston McCall, from Parkway Drive’, said Lindy Lou.

So, bring your picnic rugs, deck chairs, family and friends for a wonderful day of music and entertainment at the YAC.

To register for a free ticket, visit www.byronmusicfestival.com.au. Doors open at 10.15am and the event runs until 5.30pm. 

The YAC is located at 1 Gilmore Crescent, Byron Bay.
