It is hosted by the Healing Foundation, established on the first anniversary of the Apology to support members of the Stolen Generations and their families through healing programs. The theme of the concert is "Apology Heal Our Past, Build Our Future Together".

The event is being hosted by singer/songwriter, actor and comedian Eddie Perfect and Aboriginal actor and star of the Sapphires, Miranda Tapsell.

A night of remarkable entertainment will include Christine Anu, Archie Roach, Frank Yamma, Jimblah, Thelma Plum and Kutcha Edwards and non-indigenous performers You Am I's Tim Rogers, hip hop duo Horrorshow and urban roots band Blue King Brown.

Archie Roach said "What happened to the Stolen Generations can't be erased or taken back, and the anniversary is there to remind people it shouldn't have happened. We need to come together on that day to make sure it never happens again".
