Sydney's Yabun Festival will return on January 26, offering a day-long community celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
Translating to 'music to a beat' in Gadigal, Yabun Festival will see an exciting line-up of artists perform at Victoria Park in Broadway.
They include a lineup of emerging and established musicians, including Emily Wurramara, Frank Yamma, Tasman Keith, Fred Leone and Velvet Trip, who will take to the main stage.
Dance acts also feature on the lineup, with performances from groups including Yangkay, Jannawi Dance Clan, Mui Mui Bumer Gedlam, Wagana Aboriginal Dancers and the Brolga Dance Academy set to take place at the event's Corroboree Ground.
The event is organised by Gadigal Information Service with support of the City of Sydney.
Gadigal Information Service chair, Dallas Wellington, said Yabun Festival is more than just a gathering.
"It's a living testament to the enduring strength and vibrancy of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures," Mr Wellington said.
"This year's theme, 'Surviving, Guiding, Thriving', celebrates the resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
"We warmly invite people from all backgrounds to join us in celebrating the world's oldest living cultures at this unique event."
The event will also include a Speak Out tent, hosting conversations about topics of interest to Aboriginal communities and a bustling marketplace of stallholders.
Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore, said the City of Sydney is proud to support the event and the city's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
"The Yabun Festival honours the survival of the world's oldest living culture. It is a day of culture, performance and truth telling," Mayor Moore said.
"In my time as Lord Mayor I have been really pleased to watch crowds at Yabun Festival grow, and with it our community's understanding of resistance and mourning."
The City of Sydney, a long-time supporter of Yabun Festival supported this year's event with a $190,000 grant.
