Byron Bay Blues Festival.

Every April over the Eater long weekend, Tyagarah Tee Tree Farm, hosts Blues Fest. 11 minutes from Byron Bay, and over 100,000 ticket sold, its a huge event on the Byron Bay music calendar. People come from all over the world to listen to blues artists such as, Michael Franti and the Spearheads, Nikki Hill, Xavier Rudd, Gary Clark Jr and Paul Kelly to name a few. There are 7 performance stages, 5 bars, 50+ market stalls, 40+ food stalls, a tent city. All held on 120 hectares over 5 days. It always rains, but nobody cares, every one there is having a good time and listening to great music.
Byron Bay bursts at the seems, and if your a local not attending the festival, then you usually stay at home. Byron wouldn't have it any other way, and loves the great vibe Blues Fest brings to the area.

An interview with ISLA Collective.

Every month Alida and Miller will interview their favourite creative people. They may be in fashion, design, food, retail or just hanging out at our place, they will all be someone we admire and who inspires us to be more creative ourselves. Our first team that we interviewed was ISLA Collective Byron Bay.

ISLA Collective.
Born, bred and based in one of Australia's most beautiful beach towns Byron Bay, the label ISLA Collective is a fresh take on basics. The ocean is where Katie and Ayla identify their style, where they spend their time together to find happiness and inspiration. Their pieces are the staples in your wardrobe. Hand printed stripes, soft denim and quality leather is their trade mark. With babies, husbands and households to run, they still find time to put out an extraordinary range for ISLA Collective. Natural and effective - simple & consistent, this sums up the girls clothing.
