Site in north of shire sold for concerts

This article was on the Northern Star.

It is notable that it is a Splendour linked consortium rather than Blues Fest, as we know they were looking at it. This means the Blue's festival might still be looking for some other place to impose their festival on.

Possible new site for Byron music festivals


BYRON Bay's biggest music festivals could move to the far north of the shire.

Ocean Shores developer Chum Vidgen and a Murwillumbah businessman have sold a vast tract of land, with natural amphitheatre-like areas, to a consortium of 15 people associated with Byron Bay's Splendour in the Grass music festival.

Council and real estate officials say the site is the ideal venue for most of Byron's music gigs, including the annual Blues and Roots festival.

The land stretches across both sides of Jones Road in the very north of Byron Shire towards Wooyung Road on the border of Tweed Shire.

Mr Vidgen confirmed the sale had been settled on Monday but said consortium member Brandon Saul had "the right to make any announcement".

Mr Saul said he was simply one of a consortium of 15 "like-minded" people but declined to elabo- rate on future plans.
