BYRON BAY PUBLIC SCHOOL – 17 Kingsley Street

Online presale tickets are just $35 (save 30%). Tickets $50 at the door.


Evolve is coming back to Byron Bay on Saturday 5 October at the Byron Bay Public School.  This year on offer is an inspiring line-up of more than 60 teachers and artists in yoga, wellness and music sharing their wisdom and art.  The Evolve Yoga & Music Festival is a celebration of all things yoga with a smorgasbord of workshops, classes and talks on a range of yoga forms, meditation, wellness, chanting and dance.

The packed program of more than 72 sessions across eight rooms caters for all levels of yogis – even first timers. For the first time at Evolve, we have a fantastic music program all day under our very own majestic Bodhi tree, and a new night concert in our Sarasvati-inspired temple (which is sometimes called the school hall). The festival also features a marketplace, a range of healing therapists offering their services, delicious vegetarian food and talks to engage the mind, body and spirit.

Local yoga teachers and artists join with others from around Australia and the globe at this inspired event. There are also sessions for the kids, with free entry for children under 12.
