The New Language will feature at the flood fundraiser this weekend.

Secret Garden Byron Bay has done a quick turnaround and restructure of their scheduled first live music festival – GardenVibes! this weekend and are now handing over all of the profits to flood relief projects.

The Secret Garden crew have hand-picked some of the best bands and artists Byron Bay has to offer and will showcase their homegrown talent in their beautiful tropical garden on Sunday March 13.

With two alternating stages, the day will flow into night as you dance and sing your heart out to the most soul-satisfying music in the Shire!

The New Language

The headline act is none other than The New Language – an amazing local group of tight friends and musicians creating energetic and soulful music. Each member of the band is a singer/songwriter and brings a unique magic to the group.

Other local talent include the Versace Boys, Mark Chapman, J Squidge, Ty La Moonchild, Jesse Whitney, Pablo Laverde, Jesse Higgins, and Resonant Hand.

The Secret Garden’s licensed bar will keep your thirst quenched and Pocket Curries will fill you full of good food to keep you dancing well into the night.

Bring your friends and your dancing shoes! This is a Secret Garden event you can’t miss and it’s all in the name of helping others.

See you in the Garden!

The Secret Garden is located in the heart of Byron Bay at 121 Jonson St. 

GardenVibes starts at 1pm. Tickets are available on Humanitix: events.humanitix.com/gardenvibes

If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
