YIRRAMBOI is Australia’s premier First Nations arts festival. Every two years, YIRRAMBOI Festival will fill the city of Melbourne in May with an exciting program of free and low-cost events across music, dance, theatre, film, exhibitions, markets, family-friendly events, talks and more.
YIRRAMBOI means ‘tomorrow’ in the shared local languages of the Boonwurrung and Woiwurrung peoples. The Festival presents a future-focused celebration of the sophistication, diversity and continuous evolution of the longest living culture in the world.
The 2021 YIRRAMBOI Festival marks the second program from Creative Director Caroline Martin, a proud Boonwurrung and Wemba Wemba woman.
