Boomerang is the first of its kind, never has an Indigenous festival of this holistic calibre been so accessible, featuring an array of music, dance, theatre, comedy, film and visual arts along with cultural knowledge exchanges and thought provoking conversations. Boomerang is occurring right at your doorstep in beautiful Byron Bay in subtropical Northern NSW. You would need to travel to a remote area of Australia to experience such an amazing event and even then it would not present near as many of the incredible artists that define the Australian Indigenous experience that is Boomerang. This is a fully realised commercial event, not dependent on grants or government handouts because the time has come to present our first culture in a way we have not had the opportunity to before, as headliners in their own land.
Boomerang will feature the very best our original culture has to offer in the arts, culture and ideas, as well as emerging musicians, artists and dancers, theatre and much more. It features 4 stages, along with workshops, traditional healings, as well as introducing the First Nations Film Festival, panels and forums over three days which define the Indigenous experience in Australia NOW.
The Festival will be held between on the October Long Weekend from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th October 2013 at the Bluesfest site, Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm just outside Byron Bay NSW, on Bundjalung land.
