A cross-generational bill celebrating our country's rich cultural diversity will take to the stage at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney this January, featuring a triple serve of acclaimed artists.
Leading the charge of acts are the incomparable Yothu Yindi and their Treaty Project, featuring founding members of the ARIA Hall Of Famers — namely, Witiyana Marika, Stuart Kellaway and Malangay Yunupingu — along with Gavin Campbell of Filthy Lucre, celebrating 25 years since the producer and his accomplice Paul Main remixed the band's seminal tune Treaty.
Expect that iconic song to make an appearance (obviously) among the set list, alongside other hits and some brand new material, all given an electronic spin to ensure no body is left inert in the face of their gigantic grooves.
The Treaty Project themselves comprise the added talents of Yirrmal, Constantina Bush (aka Kamahi Djordon King), Yirrnga Yunupingu and Shane Howard of Goanna, along with Ania Reynolds and Megan Bernard.
While this outing would be historic enough on its own, they'll be joined by revered hip hop group The Herd, who will be breaking a five-year hiatus to perform on the evening, busting out old favourites and new goods, including a couple collaborative efforts with local MCs Nooky and Radical Son.
And, by no means least, the line-up is completed by ascendant Arnhem Land rapper Baker Boy, who recently brought big buzz to Brisbane's BIGSOUND and has been growing his renown and army of fans ever since his debut single, Cloud 9, landed earlier this year.
It all goes down on Friday 12 January and, suffice to say, the show ought to be one of massive proportions.
Tickets for the event will go on sale from 9am this Thursday, 21 September, via Ticketek.
