The 2 Worlds Festival is a fundraising event for the Marrma’ Rom Foundation,

whose purpose is to provide more leadership and educational opportunities to

young Yolngu women and men and strengthen their Arnhem Land Indigenous communities.

  • I played the 2 Worlds Festival in Geelong the other week. The intent was to bring Indigenous artists and non-Indigenous artists together and that was about the best festival I have played in 30 years, it was amazing. It was really wonderful.

  • Sharing the diversity of our cultures is integral for cultural strengthening within our own mobs, not just the wider audience

  • Very welcoming and inclusive

  • There is a connection amongst festival goers who are drawn to the type of music on offer, with a strong indigenous centre, that creates a feeling of being with like-minded, friendly people.

  • It was really wonderful. I think it is all about looking after the folks that are there, not just throwing a couple of thousand people into a field and expecting them to enjoy it.

  • The mix of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performers with other backgrounds - so it truly felt like a space for reconciliation without trying too hard.

  • A lot of love and care and attention to detail was put into the event.
