Blues Festival - Should I book a place to sleep?

Hi people!

I'm traveling to Australia Feb- March.

I know that the Blues Festival is going on during these dates.

Should I be worried and book a place to sleep in Byron ahead of time? I don't know where I'm going to stay yet. Probably one of the bag packers joints on the beach!

Absolutely - Byron Bay is heavily booked at this time of the year (Blues Festival) . I highly suggest you book something months ahead ...

The Blue Festival is at Easter. Easter 2010 is 1st week of April. Your travels may be over by then.

In 2010 Blue Festival is moving to a new site further away from Byron town, but I imagine all Byron accommodation will still be booked out months ahead.

Byron accommodation (including backpackers-non of which are actually ON the beach) are heavily booked right through the year. Byron is somewhere forward bookings are always wise. The Arts Factory, well away from the beach is somewhat alternate and well regarded by vistors and locals. Google it. Limited accommodation in both Brunswick Heads and Mullumbimby will also be heavily booked for Blues Festival.
