Stone & Wood is thrilled to confirm that Festival of the Stone, a celebration of music, community and ancient brewing tradition, will welcome winter to Byron Bay this Saturday 1 June. The 10th instalment of Festival of the Stone will see Byron locals and visitors gather to take in a major lineup of music, tantalising tastes and witness the annual unveiling of the 2024 batch of Stone Beer, while also raising much needed funds for local homeless hub, Fletcher Street Cottage. Wins all round!

Festival of the Stone began as a celebration of Stone & Wood’s annual release of Stone Beer and the first tapping of the keg. The 2024 Stone Beer brew is a wood-fired porter ideal for chilly winter nights. A nod to medieval brewing, it’s a tradition held dear since Stone & Wood’s humble beginnings, seventeen years ago.  Now, every May since Stone & Wood began, alongside others in the brewing industry, Stone & Wood brews its woodfired porter Stone Beer in preparation for winter. This is called Stone Brew Day.

Get ready to spend Saturday 1 June with… Dan Sultan, Beddy Rays, The Beefs, Verge Collection Aka Lei and Mid Drift.

Bringing the ankle biters along? We have that covered with Malt Disney Art & Craft Zone.

Plus there’s garden games galore to keep them engaged and burning up that energy!

“We believe it’s a really important time to support Australian music, events and our community. With Splendour and other festivals having a year off, we’re injecting a little more love into the music side of things this year. Live music in Australia ain’t going anywhere. And with Byron having one of the highest homeless populations in the nation, now is as important as ever to support those sleeping rough. We’re happy to support Fletcher St Cottage’s incredible work in this area for the 10th year in a row.” – James Aris, Stone & Wood Marketing Manager.

There’s nowhere better than Byron in winter! Make your plans to gather in the Bay for music and brews on Saturday 1 June at Stone and Wood, Centennial Circuit, Byron Bay. Get tickets.
