 Peter Noble to launch world music festival

At Bluesfest over the weekend, Festival Director Peter Noble announced Boomerang Festival, a new world music festival to be staged over the October Labour Day long weekend at the Bluesfest site.

Rhoda Roberts, a leading cultural creative, will act as Boomerang’s Festival Director and Curator, with a press release promising the three-day event will be "a unique world cultural exchange where audiences will experience living cultures through traditional and contemporary music. Featuring some of the world’s oldest instruments, dance and rituals along with traditional arts practices and workshops with a focus on mother tongues and first instruments."

“This is a special moment for me personally, and for us all," said Peter Noble, "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 recognise the similarities we all share.”

Boomerang Festival happens from October 4–6 at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm. Ticketing details are expected to be announced shortly.
