On Australia Day, - 26 Jan 2019 from 1-5pm, the Treasury Gardens at 2-19 Spring Street, East Melbourne comes alive with an annual outdoor concert that centres around music created by indigenous artists.

Come along and enjoy the true diversity of indigenous performers across the genres like Mojo Juju, Birdz, Stiff Gins, Jedda, Brothers in Arms, Djirri Djirri Dancers and MC Monica Karo. This is a lineup of amazing talent. Melbourne-based artist Mojo Juju does not just have the powerful lyrics and song Native Tongue in her pocket, the video clip to the song was 2018's Award winner for best Australian music video. The Djirri Djirri Dance Group needs no introduction, creating dances to songs sung in Woiwurrung that relate to Creation Spirits, Country, Ancestors, animals and family.

The state's largest and longest running Indigenous music festival, it's a jam-packed program of established and emerging local Indigenous artists who perform side-by-side.
