Yabun Festival 2014

By January 20, 2014 Events

Yabun Festival is back in 2014 with an amazing program packed full with music, dance, sport, ideas and cultural activities. Drawing around 15,000 people each year, Yabun is the largest single day Indigenous festival in Australia. The festival is renowned for its impressive artistic line-ups as well as for delivering current and informative cultural programs, presenting panels and speeches by some of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community’s most recognised leaders, academics, politicians and artists.

In its 12th year, Yabun Festival 2014 returns to Victoria Park, Camperdown (corner of City and Parramatta Roads) on the 26th of January from 10am-6pm. This year, the festival is set to take us on an exhilarating ride along the song lines of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music with rock pioneers Bart Willoughby Band (wantokmusik.org) featuring Bart Willoughby and Selwyn Burns, of legendary Aboriginal bands No Fixed Address & Coloured Stone, Emma Donovan & the Puttbacks (emmadonovan.com) and Kutcha Edwards (kutcha-edwards.com).

The NSW Reconciliation Council will be at the festival with a stall so make sure you drop by and say hi! We’d love to have some volunteers to lend a hand for an hour or two, so if you are interested in helping out please get in touch with Marlesha via: marlesha.havea@nswreconciliation.org.au Also, we’d love to promote the work of our Local Reconciliation Groups so if you have any materials you would like us to display, please send them through by the 23rd of January 2014.
