2020 Sponsors

The Byron Bay Brewery are the perfect partners for Bluesfest Byron Bay. After all, both have shared the same space and built many stories in the place where the Byron Bay Brewery has called home since2004, the same property where Bluesfest (then the East Coast Blues and Roots festival) started out in its humble beginnings in 1990. Today, the brewery is run by Head Brewer, Alastair Gillespie who likes to brew things a little differently and even created a bespoke ‘Dirty 30’ beer for Bluesfest’s 30th Anniversary celebration in 2019. The Byron Bay Brewery has six beers in their range and although they love a good ale, their focus is now on brewing great tasting craft lagers perfectly suited to the local tropical climate we experience here in Byron Bay. Their most popular being Hazy One Pale Lager.


SAE is a proud sponsor of the Byron Bay Bluesfest for a few years now. We believe that music is one of the most important channels for bringing people together and Bluesfest is playing a great role on this topic, by giving opportunity for both international and local artists to perform and show their work to an excited crowd, enhancing the sense of community through art and music. Long life to the Bluesfest! Andre Comaru, National Campus Marketing Manager – SAE Creative Media Institute
