Yarrabah Band Festival

Yarrabah Band Festival

Celebrating the sounds of Yarrabah

This year, the Yarrabah Band Festival will celebrate all things roots, reggae and soul with Melbourne urban outfit Blue King Brown, Indigenous singer-songwriter Shellie Morris and Torres Strait guitarist Chris Tamwoy.

Special guest and multi-instrumentalist James Morrison will jam alongside a stellar line-up of local artists including the Yarrabah Brass Band, Elverina Johnson, Djun Djun Jarra, David Hudson and the St Augustine’s College Big Band, before an all-in grand finale.

Bring a blanket, chair or cushion and enjoy an evening of music by the sea.
