Yothu Yindi leads a line-up of living legends and rising voices of First Nations musical activism.
In 2020, the Black Lives Matter movement leapt out of the United States and proliferated around the globe; Australia was no exception, but our movement has its own unique history and identity. At the heart of BLAKTIVISM is a collaborative set featuring musicians that have redefined the voice of activism music across decades and to the present day, performing together as the galvanised chorus of an unstoppable movement.
