"They feed their pet crocodile by hand (carefully)."

In the lead up to the Byron Bay Bluesfest we spoke to some of the 200 artists who will be performing over the five day festival, which kicks off on 24 Mar. We found out five fun and wacky things about East Journey:

  1. They are related to Yothu Yindi.
  2. They hunt with spears for their dinner.
  3. The band hails from an untouched remote pristine part of Australia called Yirrkala where the didgeridoo was born.
  4. They merge the didg with guitar like you've never seen nor heard before. 
  5. They feed their pet crocodile by hand (carefully).
