Each year we marvel at the quality, diversity and talent that is the essence of what makes this festival so special, and each year it redefines us. The theme for the 2020 Tablelands Folk Festival is “Plant Seeds and Sing Songs”.
A folk festival gives participants and attendees an opportunity to express their differences and celebrate their unity with the Tablelands Folk Festival promise of magic-through-music being delivered year after year.
This festival is now a part of the DNA of this wonderful township of Yungaburra (Janggaburru) and reinforces its rich cultural traditions as well as new and innovative music and art.
The Festival recognizes the role the Organising Committee and all of our volunteers play in producing such a wonderful event that means so much to the community and leads the way in celebrating and profiling music and culture.
The accolades from 2019 were enormous, and we’d truly like to thank every single person who has volunteered at Tablelands Folk Festival during the past 39 years.
With the serenity of the rainforest, mountains and crater lakes as a backdrop, the heritage village of Yungaburra comes alive with internationally renowned acts performing alongside emerging local talent in a variety of venues throughout the Village.
From the big stage to the more intimate and casual, everyone is sure to find music to lift their spirits, freshen their mind and get their toes tapping.
Visit the Festival website www.tablelandsfolkfestival.org.au for more info. All the performers, special events, workshops and Fringe events are there in big, bold, beautiful tropical colour.
Mark your calendar for 23-25 October and bring your family and friends and join in our 40th Anniversary Celebrations with a weekend of magic through music.
