ABOUT YARRABAH BRASS FESTIVAL

The Yarrabah Band Festival has swiftly become one of the region’s most popular annual events, with audiences over 4000 in 2017.  It was established after the revival of the Yarrabah Brass Band, which has played a pivotal role in Queensland’s cultural heritage since 1901. By providing an opportunity for the Band to share the stage with some of Australia’s greatest musical talent, the Yarrabah Band Festival aims to inspire and empower audiences through music, and welcome people from around Australia and the world into the Yarrabah community.

Yarrabah Band Festival is presented by Queensland Music Festival and Yarrabah Aboriginal Shire Council.
