AURUKUN, WOORABINDA AND PALM ISLAND WILL SEE PURE, BOLD SOUL-ROCKER DAN SULTAN MAKE HIS FIRST VISITS TO THESE FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND COMMUNITIES AS PART OF THIS YEAR’S NAIDOC WEEK
Sultan will bring his electrifying blues-rock, gospel and soul to these three remote Indigenous communities for a special series of concerts and workshops for young people and local musicians. In Aurukun, students involved in QMF’s ongoing instrumental and youth programs will get to jam with major stars.
Woorabinda will celebrate its 90th Anniversary as a community with an outdoor concert opened by Sultan, and Palm Island welcomes Sultan as the centrepiece of their NAIDOC celebrations.
Dan Sultan is presented by Queensland Music Festival.
