In addition to heading into Blues Fest this Easter we thought, we’d give you an especially relevant fool proof plan of attack.

The Guide

  1. If you’re camping at Blues Fest – know the ins and outs of your packed car. First thing you’ll want to do is set up your tent.
  2. You should get used to not showering and using drop toilets…
  3. Pack clothing for all condition. Go to a festival in Byron, they said. It will be sunny they said. Wrong. Prepare for mud.
  4. Have a set meeting place because chances are you won’t have a mobile connection.
  5. Forget camping in the mud – book either of the Byron Bay Beach Houses HERE with all your friends and family.
