A free weekend of First Nations music, dance and culture
Homeground returns this November with a weekend of free outdoor entertainment from some of the most talented Indigenous musicians and dancers from across Australia and around the globe - all taking place on the Western Broadwalk of the Sydney Opera House.
There will be performances by artists such as Dan Sultan, Richard Frankland & The Charcoal Club, Digging Roots (CAN), Ursula Yovich, Chris Tamwoy and Sean Choolburra, as well as a host of pop-up bars and eateries, walking tours and entertainment for the whole family.
Homeground will form part of Corroboree Sydney's 10-day celebration of Australia's rich Indigenous culture, featuring leading artists, writers, dancers and musicians showcasing their creativity and sharing stories in over 100 events across Sydney.
“Homeground is a wonderful celebration of Indigenous music, dance and culture from across Australia and around the world. The Opera House is a magical setting and we want as many people as possible to join us on the traditional land of the Gadigal people. We are also delighted the festival is part of this year’s Corroboree Sydney program.”

“You don’t have to be an expert on world music to enjoy the Sydney Opera House’s latest offering of free events, you just need to love a bit of rhythm, relax and take in the view over the weekend. Vibrant, fun and at times edgy, Homeground is dance and music from Australia’s Heartland of first peoples with a smattering of world cultures that will spark your imagination and have you on your feet wanting more.”
Head of Indigenous Programming, Sydney Opera House
