SPECIAL ARTIST ANNOUNCEMENT:

John Williamson & special guest
Warren H Williams

added to the Boomerang Line up for Sunday 6th of October!

The first Boomerang Festival, held at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, the beautiful home of Bluesfest, is happening in just over 2 weeks time over the long October weekend Friday 4th through to Sunday 6th of October.

With the Monday being a public holiday, Boomerang Festival is the perfect place to be that weekend.

Australian Icon John Willamson has been added to the final Boomerang Festival line up performing Sunday on the main stage. John Williamson hits include True Blue, Old Man Emu, Mallee Boy, Home among the Gumtrees, Cootamundra Wattle and many more. He has sold over 4 Million records in Australia.

Warumungu man Warren H Williams is also joining the announcement. As long standing friends, Williamson plans to invite Warren to join him on stage for a song or two.

Their duet of Raining on the Rock won the best single at the Deadly Sounds Indigenous Awards in 1998 and their performance that year at the ARIA Awards is still one of the most talked about performances in the history of the awards.

For John his performance at the Boomerang Festival continues a long standing engagement with Australia’s first peoples. His unofficial anthems, tributes to legends and unsung heroes and tender ballads have captured the spirit of the nation and created a unique connection within the Aboriginal community

Combined, these award winning artists bring audiences a taste of the desert, Uluru and the wattle of Cootamundra, promising to be a unique concert in a very special setting.


“Whilst John Williamson is scheduled to perform his own show, he has confirmed that he looks forward to inviting Warren to join him for a song or two. It has been some years since they have performed together and this collaboration will be a special experience for all attending the Boomerang Festival.” Rhoda Roberts Festival Director
