THE weather remained humid and hot, but the crowds were decided to have a good time yesterday at Falls Festival at North Byron Parklands.

With the headlining acts starting relatively late (after 8pm) punters decided to dress up, have a laugh and skip a rope.

People had a chance to discover The Village, Lo Fi and Troubadour, the smaller stages where they had access to high quality local performers.

A young performer who stood out at The Troubadour yesterday and Lo Fi on Tuesday was Sunshine Coast singer Sahara Beck.

Beck conquered the crowd and got everyone dancing with a fun and upbeat version of Supertramp's Breakfast in America, at the time that dark clouds darkened the sunset.

Wet weather or not, '80s hip hop trio Salt N Pepa were decided to get the revellers moving with a music set that was upbeat and funky.

Australian DJ Alison Wonderland received 2015 with a set of music that got everyone dancing at Yelgun.

Today, Falls Music and Arts Festival is set to deliver its strongest artist line-up at its Byron Bay location.

International acts will be the highlights at the Forest Stage today, with melodic folk Icelandic singer Asgeir on at 4.15pm.

UK singer songwriter George Ezra will also be at the Forest Stage from 5.30pm with hits such as Budapest, Cassy O', and Listen to The Man.

The Valley Stage will offer today local and international acts with Adelaide rapper Tkay Maidza opening at 12.15pm.
Merimbula-born and Byron Bay favourite surfer/singer Kim Churchill will follow from 1.15pm. Hit Australian singer songwriter Vance Joy will perform from 2.30pm.

Electronic music will be the norm of the evening with Australian act The Presets from 8.15pm, British act La Roux at 9.45pm and Western Australia's Empire of The Sun closing the night from 11pm.
