Treaty Day Out
On February 26, Shepparton will play host to Treaty Day Out, a one-day outdoor music festival to raise awareness (and support) for the journey towards treaty in Victoria.
Leading the star-studded First Nations line-up is one of Australia’s most significant music groups – and creators of the anthem Treaty – Yothu Yindi. Plus, the legendary Archie Roach, high-energy rapper Briggs, electro duo Electric Fields, Alice Skye and more.
There’ll also be food trucks, craft stalls and a vaccination van.
Behind the event, on Yorta Yorta Country, is the First Peoples’ Assembly of Victoria. And it aligns with an assembly by-election where Aboriginal people in the state’s north-east can choose who represents them in the treaty process.
Entry is free for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people who have enrolled with the First Peoples’ Assembly of Victoria (you can do so here), but you still need to register for a ticket. Otherwise, entry is $50.
