It’s about to get dusty, as a night of radical self-expression, set against a backdrop of Burner-style entertainment comes to Byron Bay.
The Portal, presented by Flow Music and Burn Byron, was born out of a need to connect with the Nevada-based gathering in a time of great world angst. Co-creator Effi Shwintarsky said he wanted to create an event that embodied the magic of the Burn for the local community – music, exotica, dance, wonder and mayhem.
Shwintarsky says, ‘in the midst of everything that was happening in the world, and a fear that we may never get to experience such an event again, I was determined to get together the musicians, magic and design of the Burn to give to my community a taste of that freedom’.
Guests can expect to have all their senses awoken, with an expertly curated night of music, featuring the likes of German heavyweight Dave Dinger, intersected with three mind-bending performances from the likes of Burner alumni such as Zoe L’amore, and Stella Kinesis.
Also appearing are Chayne Hultgren – The Space Cowboy – who is not only MCing the event, but also creating a one-off show about our liberty just for The Portal: Friday, 30 December at 7.33pm.
