Yarrabah Band Festival will be held on Saturday 3 November, 2018 in partnership with the Yarrabah Aboriginal Shire Council. The annual event has grown since 2013 to become a key event for the community and Far North Queensland, with audience of over 4000 in 2017. The Festival will be a full day of live music, food stalls, local art and kids rides on the Jilara Football Oval in Yarrabah.
The origin of the Festival was founded on the Yarrabah Brass Band which was re-established with the assistance of QMF; it is part of a beloved history from the early brass bands in the late 1800s, to the 1950s and again today.
In recent years Yarrabah Band Festival has featured beloved Australian country music star Troy Cassar-Daley, ARIA Award winner Archie Roach, jazz sensation James Morrison, and the host of Triple J’s House Party, KLP.
