Yabun Festival is held annually on January 26 at Victoria Park in Camperdown, on Gadigal Land. Yabun — which means "music to a beat" in the Gadigal language — features a wide range of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander talent.

The day will start with a Welcome to Country and smoke ceremony and, this year, the lineup includes award-winning artist Dan Sultan, Shellie Morris — who can sing in 17 Aboriginal languages — and blues legend Buddy Knox.

In addition to the live music, the day will also include traditional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performances, panel discussions featuring members of Sydney's Indigenous community and heaps of activities for adults and kids alike. There will also be a bunch of art, design and activist stalls for you to peruse.

It kicks off at 11am and will run until 7pm.
