Byron Bay Surf Festival

Surfers, beach lovers, water people – owing to COVID- related complications, the 2022 Byron Bay Surf Festival has moved to a September timeslot this year.

Held in Australia’s much-loved and internationally famous beach town, Byron Bay, the Festival will provide some fabulously immersive experiences of surf culture. The first event will actually be on Wednesday, 7 September, when the Festival will premiere the digitally re-mastered version of George Greenough’s iconic film Echoes along with the original Pink Floyd soundtrack. Thursday night they host Californian filmmaker Jack Coleman’s new feature film Natural High. 

The official opening night, on Friday 9 September, will feature none other than the legendary Jack McCoy and his unique live show called Tales from the Tube – featuring live Indigenous music, and special guests Derek Hynd and Jaleesa Vincent. This could be a hard act to follow!

But follow it they will, with days of surfing and nights of live music and art. 

Saturday at The Rails Hotel expect a party vibe from 4pm with live music from The Terrys, Teenage Dads, Liquid Contours and more. On Sunday evening there is a banging closing party lined up; with more live music and some very special environmental guests at The Secret Garden. Get the dates into your diary and watch this space for the detailed program!
