Bundjalung country’s very own world-class Indigenous Arts & Culture Festival, Boomerang Festival is back for 2019 with a stellar line-up including Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project, Young Australian of the Year – Baker Boy, DOBBY and many more.
Boomerang Festival is performed within Bluesfest so to attend, you must hold a Bluesfest 2019 ticket.
A NOTE FROM THE FESTIVAL DIRECTOR
Our festival within a festival, at Bluesfest, is one of our highlights. It is a musical and sensory delight. We have the best artists and dancers from Australia and surrounding regions.
The dance troupes are thrilling and to have a musical showcase presenting the Young Australian of the Year; the incredible Baker Boy, the legendary Archie Roach, Yothu Yindi & the Treaty Project, Mojo Juju, the Mission Songs, Benny Walker and much much more – this is a dream bill for us! The incredibly popular Te Kopere Maori Healers will return providing their very special talents, the local Bundjalung weavers will impart customary weaving techniques in our kids tent in a way where children, and adults alike, can not only learn these skills, they can also have a very special First Nations experience and enjoy a cup of tea with an elder.
Once again, the local Arakwal people will welcome you to their country, as will the peoples of the Bundjalung tribe of our area, come and immerse yourself in Boomerang on a very personal level.
My partner Rhoda Roberts AO and I, as the Boomerang Festival Directors, invite you to experience this wonderful event. Many have said the Closing Ceremony is one of the most moving experiences, not only of Bluesfest, but, of their lives.
Please come by, I’m sure you will be back!
Peter Noble, OAM
