Looking for the best Byron Bay Festivals!?  Well, you’re in luck, however, keep in mind that Byron Bay is one of the strangest places in the world to visit!  This Australian treasure is widely known as a Mecca for spiritual seekers and is conveniently tucked away in a beautiful coastal pocket of northern New South Wales.

Festivals in Byron Bay have been ranked as some of the best in the world, and that doesn’t just go for their world-class music festivals such as Bluesfest and Splendour in the Grass.

Byron Bay has a smorgasbord of festivals to meet any interest or niche. Food, beer, culture, spiritualism, yoga, film, weed and surfing. Take your pick.

My list of the best 20 Byron Bay festivals aims to inspire your next east coast road trip. And maybe a spiritual epiphany as well….

1) Splendour in the Grass

When: July 2023

Where: North Byron Parklands

Genre: Various

“Its name alone, Splendour in the Grass, evokes lazy, languid afternoons and evenings hanging around, relaxing, soaking up summer’s rays and life’s best unplanned moments.

Never fear, the temps are mild enough for enjoyment—Byron Bay is a surfer’s paradise and home to lots of creative types. When you add a lineup of super popular artists, along with food trucks, teepees, crafts, a kids’ area, yoga, spa activities, workshops, speakers and the requisite circus performers—you get more things you could possibly do in three days. You get Splendour in the Grass.”
