The Byron Bay Surf Festival 2018 will see a few exciting changes and new additions, set to be released soon, but here are a few nuggets to get the froth meter rising!
News Nugget 1: ANOTHER DAY TO PLAY!
With last year being such a cracking wave-blessed success, there has been an extra day added to the festivities. This extends ALL the opportunities to gather, celebrate and get that much needed fix of surf culture now!
News Nugget 2: FRIDAY’S GETTING IT’S OWN SURF EVENT
The organisers walked deep in to the tallows beach sand dunes and came out a day later with a wild idea that will now be a brand new surfing event happening on the Friday – sure to amp us all up for the rest of the weekend’s happenings! More announcements to come on this one.
News Nugget 3: THE SURF LIT LOUNGE GOES LUNA
It all starts the night of Thursday Feb 22 with a rebranded and redesigned Surf Lit Lounge. For starters, it’s now called THE SURF LEGENDS LOUNGE. And because of all the big names that the festival is bringing, it was decided to turn this crowd fave event into a sunset surf soiree all of it’s own! Housed within the Byron Bay Community Centre, expect to meet some of the biggest legends and icons in surfing to bring you insightful and entertaining talks on surfing, adventure, surfboards, the arts and sustainability. Come early for food and drinks and music.. oh my! Catching up with new friends and old – this Fest-starting event will be epic!
Also, Back for 2018:
All the FEELGOOD and FREE events from last season will be back, including the Sunset Cinema, the Art show, Surf Art Markets, Live Music and plenty of parties and other beautiful and radical stuff.
Of course, who could forget the rocking fun times of the Freestyle & Stoke sessions at everyone’s favourite dreamy beach, Wategos?! That is back for sure!
