Yabun Festival is the largest one day celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture in Australia. It takes place on 26 January and returns to Victoria Park (and surrounding venues) in 2021. First held in Waverly in 2003, this will be Yabun’s 19th year.
Due to COVID-19 and related crowd restrictions, Yabun will be a closed event this year, with the general public invited to join via live stream video or Koori Radio 93.7FM. This means for the first time ever audiences can attend Yabun Festival from around Australia and the world.
Yabun will be live streamed from three isolated venues — the Yabun stage, Speak Out and Corroboree. The Yabun stage this year will be at the Seymour Centre from 12pm-5pm AEDT. Attendance is very limited. This will be a ticketed event. Tickets are not for sale. There will be ticket giveaways throughout the week announced on Koori Radio 93.7FM.
Speak Out will be live streamed from within the New Law Building at The University of Sydney. This session is closed to the public. The live stream will take place from 12.30pm-5pm AEDT. Corroboree will be taking place at Victoria Park. Unfortunately this will also be closed to the public but will be live streamed from 11am-4pm AEDT.
