Yarrabah Band Festival 2017

Yarrabah Band Festival 2017


The popular Yarrabah Band Festival returned for its fifth year, celebrating the diversity of Australian music talent. This year’s festival had a huge line-up featuring beloved Australian country star Troy Cassar-Daley. Audiences also enjoyed music from multi-Golden Guitar Award-winner Sara Storer, jazz sensation and all-round entertainer James Morrison and the host of Triple J’s House Party, KLP. Festival favourite Shellie Morris returned to work with Yarrabah youth, along with local legends the Yarrabah Brass Band. Local bands joined the program, as well as special performances by talented students from Yarrabah State and High Schools.

Since the inaugural event in 2013, the Yarrabah Band Festival has continued to attract huge audiences. This year, the festival welcomed a crowd over 4,000 to the Jilara Football Oval.

This year the event moved to the Jilara Football Oval to allow for the growing crowd to enjoy full day of live music, food stalls and local art.
