4th of October
Red Devil Park

We are celebrating the dawning of a new species of events for Byron Bay with every shape and form of the arts imaginable on colourful display around 5 arenas including 3 big tops for the Evolve Arts Festival. Bursting at the seams with performances and works to dazzle the eye, stir the senses, mystify the mind, flick the funny bone and tease the taste buds, this festival promises to be a weekend to remember!

Be blissfully blown away by the music and dance performances on the main stage including a 61 piece orchestra or skip to the circus arena for some heart stopping stunts and kooky cabaret. Open your mind with the thoughts and inspirations from many talented writers or tickle the belly with some tongue in cheek. The whole family will love the outdoor trapeze by spaghetti circus and the many street performers that pave the way as you float from one arena to another, then kick back for a cinematic experience with 60 short films to be showcased under the stars. Don’t forget to take a gander at the markets that revolve around ‘evolve’ or should you desire a most precious piece of memorabilia for your take home bag, you can visit the ‘EPI CENTRE’ art gallery where works will be available for purchase for you to bring home a masterpiece for your mantelpiece. Perhaps you’d prefer to schmooze over a chai and some great local tucker from the many food stalls or make a dash for the cocktail bar should you feel the urge to wet your whistle where a myriad of acts will also be performing!
With fantastic family ticket prices - children and giants alike will enjoy this all ages event with kids 12yrs and under entering for free and ages 13 to 17 well under half price with specialized workshops running all day for our mini art lovers! What better way for them to evolve!

Join us for an art feast on our first birthday, but rest assured this will be no last supper as we continue to evolve into the years to come.

Come to Byron Bay and evolve with us!!!
