A festival for your mind!
Byron Writers Festival is set up a bit like a music festival, with five marquees that you can move between as you please, featuring concurrent panel discussions and conversations with more than 140 writers and thinkers from around Australia and the world. The festival has a number of different ticket types, so people from all walks of life can enjoy the stories, discussion and debate that make up the program.
A 3-Day Pass gives you access to all sessions (99 of them!) happening in the main festival program across the whole weekend. This pass is a great choice if you would like the time and space to fully immerse yourself in the festival and wish to attend for more than just one day.
A 1-Day Pass gives you access to sessions happening in the main festival program for your chosen day – Friday, Saturday or Sunday. This pass is the best choice if you have limited time but still want the ‘festival’ experience.
The hardest part about purchasing a 1-Day Pass is choosing which day! Rest assured the festival program is designed so that a range of topics and themes are covered each day and as it’s often the names you don’t recognise that leave the biggest impression, you really can’t go wrong.
Kids Big Day Out Passes
The Kids Big Day Out Pass admits one child (6–12 years) and one accompanying adult to the Kids Big Day Out marquee at the festival on Sunday 28 August for $40. Additional children are $20 each, and pre-schoolers are free. This pass is suitable only if you plan on attending the Kids Big Day Out program with your children.
Sunday Family Pass
The Sunday Family Pass admits one child (6–12 years) and two adults to the festival site on Sunday 28 August for $120. Additional children are $20 each, and pre-schoolers are free. This pass is a great option if you love the idea of sharing the Kids Big Day Out program with your children but also wish to catch other sessions in the main program.
Please note that with this ticket type, children gain access to the Kids Big Day Out program only, which takes place on Sunday in one marquee from 8.45am–1pm. Children must be accompanied by at least one adult at all times. Adults gain access to the whole Sunday program, but cannot leave their children unsupervised, so will need to tag team with the other adult admitted on the pass.
Workshops, Feature Events and Satellite Events
A program of separately ticketed Workshops, Feature Events and Satellite Events takes place over the festival weekend throughout the Northern Rivers region. Feature Events are our special program of separately ticketed events featuring a curated selection of festival guests addressing key themes of the 2022 Festival. Satellite Events are free and ticketed community events taking place throughout the week across the Northern Rivers region. Access to Feature and Satellite Events is not included in 1 or 3-Day Pass.
