The countdown is on to the annual Barunga Festival which celebrates 30 years of art and music in 2015 with performances by Paul Kelly, Gurrumul, Sammy Butcher and Neil Murray.

The festival is held over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend from 5 – 7 June. It’s a great opportunity to see and share some top class music, exciting sport and fascinating culture – all of which are so important to life in our communities.

The 2015 music program will once again provide an opportunity see some of the best emerging bands and artists from the bush.

The bush band line-up on Saturday night won’t disappoint with Lonely Boys, Mambali Band and Manuel Dhurrkay from Saltwater Band all taking to the stage.

On Sunday night on the Skinnyfish stage the Festival will feature legends Paul Kelly, Gurrumul, Sammy Butcher and Neil Murray. It’s an event not to be missed."

The Barunga culture program includes storytelling, weaving workshops, didgeridoo making and spear throwing. The sport program draws teams from across the Territory to battle it out in football, basketball and softball.

This year will also include the inaugural Road Safety Short Film competition. The best films will be showcased with over $4000 in prize money up for grabs.
