The Mullum Music Festival


In a musical landscape dominated by super-festivals, there's an alternative breed of smaller, more boutique style events making their own very distinctive mark on the industry.

Mullum Music Festival is one such event and its popularity with both musicians and fans is a testament to its musical integrity. Pretty impressive for a low key event held in the little town of Mullumbimby, tucked away in the hills behind Byron Bay!
