Falls Music and Arts Festival has announced a large contingent of local Northern Rivers musicians, DJs, circus acts and comedians will perform at the Falls Byron edition. More than 20 local acts will bring the music and fun to The Grove area, a mini festival within the festival.
One of the local acts announced for Falls Festival Byron, Damien Cooper, treated patrons at the Top Shop café in Byron Bay to a special ‘unplugged’ performance on Friday morning (22 December).
“It’s an honour to have this wonderful opportunity to be part of Falls Byron!” said Damien Cooper “I feel incredibly grateful be chosen as a performer and to share my music with those who come from so far just for the festival. I really hope I can inspire and spark ideas in listener’s minds with my music and lyrics. I really want to give the audience something new and refreshing that they haven’t heard before.”
“The Northern Rivers region produces some of the most exciting, young, talented musicians and performers around. As is evident here today with Damien Cooper coming to the Top Shop with his guitar and having us all spellbound,” said Falls Byron Director Brandon Saul over his favourite chai latte “We’re thrilled Falls Byron can showcase the wealth of our local talent to a large audience.”
On Friday, the Top Shop and their patrons were pretty thrilled too “At the Top Shop we’re big-time fans of Falls. We reckon it’s the best thing to happen to summer in Byron for a long time,” said owner Charlie Gordon. “We’re so proud to have Damien come along to the Top Shop and play a few songs! Lucky us…”
