Plenty of good vibes at Falls Festival

ALL that was left to do yesterday was pack up and go for Falls Music and Arts Festival patrons.

The festival finished up on Thursday night with The Violent Femmes playing their entire debut album from start to finish to celebrate the LP's 30th anniversary.

Neil Finn backed it up for the older generations and provided the best sing-along of the three-day event.

Earlier in the day Solange's set continued as a streaker made his way through punters to the top of the hill at the main stage.

He didn't quite escape security when he returned fully clothed, taking in the applause from punters, and was soon escorted away.

Surrounding crowds booed for the loss of their latest hero.

After days of sunshine and a lot of dust, rain was a welcome start to The Wombats' set on the Amphitheatre stage and on the ground.

Byron Bay police Inspector Jago said patrons were generally well behaved throughout the event.

"There were a couple of minor incidents but nothing too dramatic," he said.

Unfortunately, getting off the grounds yesterday wasn't as smooth as it was coming in and patrons let the organisers know via social media.

Some people complained of sitting motionless for up to four hours in the sweltering heat, however all campers were off site by 3pm.

Despite the issues heading out of the festival, the layout and vibe of the inaugural festival at the Yelgun site would likely see attendees heading back next time.
