The Festival Of The Stone is back for 2019 and heads up, tickets sell out real quick.

This year the festival will be bigger and better than ever, taking place in their brand-new 1160-square-metre Byron Bay brewery. For a sneak peek inside, head here

Kicking off at 3pm, Saturday 8 June, and lasting into the wee hours, you’ll rock out to epic live music with a cold brew in hand. Following her success at last year’s Splendour in the Grass, Alex Lahey will be headlining the festival with her super fun pop-punk energy, alongside internationally celebrated producer Alice Ivy and local soul favourite Lisa Hunt.

There will be food trucks like Spice Pirate BBQ, Gunter's Flammkuchen, Pocket Curries and Zicatela pumping out delicious eats, a Malt Disney kids’ area and brews pouring from their dedicated beer trucks. 

A family-friendly community event, last year the Festival raised $17,000 for Stone & Wood’s national not-for-profit the inGrained Foundation, which it donated to Northern Rivers-based Big Scrub Landcare. This year, all event profits will again go to the inGrained Foundation for donation to a local charity, yet to be announced. 

General tickets are now on sale and will set you back just $45. That will score you entry to the festival and a tasting of Stone & Wood’s seasonal, limited Stone Beer. Brewed with hot stones from a woodfire, Stone Beer pays homage to brewing ancestors across Europe, who stone brewed their beer from as early as the 7th century. Perfect for a winter’s night, the hot stones lend a rich caramelly flavour to the beer, complementing the hints of coffee and dark chocolate.
