Yothu Yindi and The Treaty Project

Kicking off Festival 2018 will be Yothu Yindi and The Treaty Project, featuring original members of ARIA Hall of Fame inductees Yothu Yindi with special guests, serving up classic hits as well as brand new material, all with an electronic twist.

The ensemble is inspired by the new remix package celebrating the 25th anniversary of ‘Treaty’ and sees Yothu Yindi reunited with Gavin Campbell, founding member of seminal remix producers Filthy Lucre, for a Queensland exclusive performance.
Witiyana Marika, Stuart Kellaway and Malangay Yunupingu will be joined by popular Indigenous singer-songwriters Yirrmal (son of Witiyana), Dhapanbal Yunupingu (daughter of former Yothu Yindi frontman, the late Dr M Yunupingu), renowned performer and artist Kamahi Djordon King and exceptional newcomer Yirrnga Yunupingu plus Goanna frontman Shane Howard with accomplished musicians Ania Reynolds and Megan Bernard in the bespoke ensemble, which received high praise from audiences and critics when they took the celebration to the stage last November and January, performing at festivals and their own headline shows in Victoria and New South Wales.

Stay for the screening of the Opening Ceremony, starting at 8pm on the Main Stage screen.
