“This is a special moment for me personally, and for us all – hosting a significant cultural event on the Bluesfest site which is actually Bundjalung country not only makes sense, but makes me proud. Through the healing of music, the rhythm of language and the power of dance, it’s time to have fun and gather as we recognsie the similarites we all share,” sais Peter Noble in a statement.
“Language is has been said is the light of the mind, combine that with the revitalisation and the return of some ancient traditions and practices from an eclectic line up of artists and you have a unique festival experience”, says Rhoda Roberts.
