Celebrate the world’s oldest surviving culture at this popular annual festival
Yabun is a long running Survival Day gathering in Camperdown that provides a positive space for people to share in the culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the country. 'Yabun' is a Gadigal word that means 'music to a beat' and the free festival includes stages of live music, a Corroboree Ground where traditional Indigenous dances will be performed, market stalls to browse and workshops for kids and adults in arts and crafts, sport and more in-depth discussions around contemporary issues faced by the community.
The 2019 musical line-up features Roger Knox, who was born in Moree, grew up in the Toomelah Mission near Boggabilla and has earned the title of Koori King of Country, as well as induction into the Australian Country Music Foundation’s Hall of Fame. He’ll be joined by Gamilaraay pop-folk singer-songwriter from Delungra Thelma Plum, Kutcha Edwards of the Mutti Mutti people at Balranald, Redfern-based reggae fusion group and social justice advocates Green Hand Band, Sydney hip hop MC Sonboy and more performers that are still to be announced.
