This year join poet, actor and award-winning playwright, John Harding as he hosts the very first virtual Koorie Krismas!

All are welcome, with our thanks to the Koorie Heritage Trust for masterminding another Koorie Krismas!


Emerging out of Melbourne’s expansive psychedelic music scene and onto the stages of Strawberry Fields, Grampians Music Festival and St Kilda Festival, BUMPY, a proud Noongar woman, presents an introspective view into her truths as a First Nations independent artist whilst delving into a world where vulnerability is power.

Aaron B

Join self-described “incredibly weird but 100% authentic” indigenous artist Aarøn B as he shares the heartfelt, melodic sound track to his life, thanks to his Cole Clark acoustic guitar. Inspired by getting lost in the eclectic Melbourne music scene, his music is both haunting and uplifting.

The Merindas

The Merindas are set to trail-blaze their innovative style of Indigenous music. Soul sisters who describe their unique sound as ‘electronic pop with a dance-hall feel’. Come, dance, rejoice.

Koorie Klaus

Koorie Krismas inst Koorie Krismas without the big man himself, Koorie Klaus. He’ll still be gracing our chimney’s and making the little ones laugh.
