Byron Bay Bluesfest is Australia’s premier blues and roots music festival.  Winning gold for Major Festivals and Events in New South Wales, the  much loved Easter weekend festival has presented a staggering array of contemporary and legendary artists from the blues, roots and myriad sub genres for 27 years.  It’s history runs parallel to Byron Bay’s  evolution into an iconic destination renowned for vibrant arts and creativity around the world.

What they all have in common is a commitment to delivering superlative memorable experiences. We are just delighted that these fantastic tourism and event businesses  and valued clients have been recognised for excellence, and to have played a role in telling their story to stand out amongst the judging panels and industry peers.
