The YIRRAMBOI First Nations Arts Festival is a ten-day feast of arts and culture bringing together creative visionaries from across the globe.
Every two years, the vibrant festival takes over Melbourne with an exciting program of extraordinary events across music, dance, theatre, film, exhibitions, markets, talks and more. Meaning ‘tomorrow’ in the shared local languages of the Boonwurrung and Woiwurrung peoples, YIRRAMBOI presents a dynamic, future-focused celebration of the longest living culture in the world.
