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.
From the perspective of an artist too, we were welcomed incredibly warmly and treated incredibly well, which can really affect how you play on the day
I thought the 2 Worlds Festival was truly unique and inspiring
We hope this event will grow and be supported in the future. The message of reconciliation and celebration of our countries indigenous heritage should be valued and promoted.
Congratulations on such an amazing festival! Thank you so much for having us, we had an absolute ball! The location, the acts, the staff, the food! Everything was just done with such love and care and passion and the crowd just loved it
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.
A lot of love and care and attention to detail was put into the event.
On a cultural level, we genuinely feel that this festival deserves a big future."
It was a really emotional and moving event for me. There was a naturalness to this.
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.
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.
