Walk For Yes Artists Announced

In Perth, John Butler and Phil Walleystack have been locked in to perform. See the full rundown of the Walk For Yes events below.

“I’m really looking forward to being a part of such a beautiful event,” Dan Sultan said in a statement. “An event that is about optimism and empowerment. A lot of important work has gone into this and I’m proud to make a contribution.”

“Leaning on the universal language of music to support the enshrinement of a First Nations Voice into the Australian constitution,” added MARLON. “Truly blessed to be part of such a special event.”

A number of music organisations have thrown their support behind the Yes campaign in recent weeks, including Support Act and ARIA. John Farnham also allowed the campaign to use his iconic song ‘You’re The Voice’. “This song changed my life,” Farnham said. “I can only hope that now it might help, in some small way, to change the lives of our First Nations Peoples for the better.”

The referendum will take place on Saturday, 14th October; voting is compulsory, you can check your details through the Australian Electoral Commission.
