Tribal Exodus gathering

The Space Cowboy is not weird everyone has two ears, right? But he does have magic powers and a great show that includes mind-reading and spoon-bending. He is one of the many and diverse acts at the Exodus Live Festival happening soon.

With over 100 performers on five stages, the seventh annual Exodus Live Festival will be the best yet, with an emphasis on audience participation. Punters can jam, workshop and dance at beautiful Bald Rock Bush Retreat near Tenterfield from January 12-14.

This is a totally inclusive event, said co-director Michelle Gibson. The aim this year is to create a really comfortable, safe, and beautiful party environment with all the trimmings. There will be all the eye candy and non-stop music as in previous years, plus super installations, visuals, full amenities and new music genres.

Super Freaky Kinky will present the Forest Freakshow Disco in the Dirty Disco Dome. (Love the names, man.) Expect Astroboy, Electric Dollhouse and The Space Cowboy (Happy Sideshow) to dazzle alongside top DJs like Noodles, Nick Taylor, Jackie Onassid, Chin Bindi, Tone Broker, Scooter and many more.

The dramatic Pyramid Main Stage will host worldwide DJ sensation Tipper (UK) plus live acts such as Ganga Giri, Wild Marmalade, OKA, Slot Machine, Deya Dova, Mission Ignition, Mystic Beats, A.B.Didj Live, Alter-Native, Dubshack and more.

For the first time, there will be a daily shuttle bus from Byron Bay to Bald Rock. For more info on the festival, tickets and to book for the shuttle bus, visit

Rosanna has designs on female taboo

Artist Rosanna Pimm uses 3500 porcelain tampons to created her large scale performance installation  Riots of Passage in The Quad  as part of The Lismore Women's Festival on International Women's Day. Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
