Headlining this year’s festival is Kasey Chambers, who is making her debut playing the iconic festival. Joining her are the likes of Emma Louise, Amanda Palmer, Ngaiire, Archie Roach, Lior, Kate Miller-Heidke and plenty more.
“It is a coming together of souls; a bubbling cauldron of expression and creativity; an exploration of our cultures and a celebration of a compassionate community,” said Chloe Goodyear, head of programming for the event, in a statement.
“The programme is a collection of performances, workshops, talks, and experiences that celebrate who we are, examine the issues we’re facing as a global and local community, and inspire us to move forward together.”
This year’s festival theme is ‘Imagining A Beautiful Future’ which festival director Bill Hauritz says is not about inspiring false hope, but actively making a change wherever they can.
“We don’t want to inspire false hope, but together, if we can imagine a brighter, more promising future, we’ll make one,” he said.
