Unite with friends and family to celebrate the return of This Land; a First Nations celebration of the sound, soul, and spirit of the many nations in this country.

There are many voices that shape this nation, but none stronger and more connected as the First Peoples of this country. Songlines are central to First Nations people and connect the stories of land, water, sky, and lore. Songlines are a form of communication passed down from generation to generation, shaping the original nations and identity of where we call home. City of Newcastle and the Wollotuka Institute at The University of Newcastle collaborated to bring This Land to life.

In 2022, we celebrate its biggest year yet, highlighting a handful of award-winning and acclaimed First Nations music artists who are shaping the voices of the next generation to come. To remotely understand the importance and connection of song is to experience it being shared with you. This event is suitable for the whole family and features an incredible lineup of First Nations artists curated by Jacob Ridgeway.

Curated by Jacob Ridgeway, featuring Tasman Keith, The Last Kinection, YNG Martyr, Cloe Terare, Jacob Ridgeway, Loren Ryan, Mr Rhodes, Djanaba and Andy Saunders as MC.
