Narana Aborignal Cultural Centre has a proud heritage of live music and performance with successful NaranaFest events held in 2006 & 2007, we are really excited about plans to bring back NaranaFest which was a milestone event for Narana and local music lovers with the likes of The Black Keys, Xavier Rudd & Dan Sultan gracing the stage nearly 10 years ago.

The recent Narana Unplugged mini festival & Gallery Launches in 2015 featuring live music performances encouraged our belief that the time is right to reincarnate NaranaFest and to bring back a family focussed music event featuring a mix of established & up and coming indigenous talent as well providing an opportunity for local Geelong bands and plans for some big headliners.

Our goal is to create a Unique Live Music Experience: NaranaFest will provide a destination for performers, music lovers & families to experience an all ages day of Music, Indigenous Culture & Art while exploring the unique performance spaces and immersing in the total Narana Experience. Narana has committed to building a brand new Boomerang Stage to provide gig goers a premium viewing experience.

NaranaFest aims to be an affordable festival experience providing family friendly atmosphere with kids under 12 admitted free in the company of an adult ticketholder. Narana’s Boomerang Stage is situated in a natural native garden setting within Geelong's 'city limits', easily accessible by public transport, ensuring locals do not have to travel far to experience a world class musical event.

Narana is an award winning Australian Aboriginal cultural tourism & educational Enterprise that is committed to providing a welcome entree to todays’ Indigenous culture. Narana means Listening and Learning, but it’s a deep, deep listening in which you take in and live out. It’s a listening and learning for life. Promoting this message is critical to advancing the Reconciliation dialogue in a positive & inclusive manner.

NaranaFest will be a focal point for Narana's community engagement strategy with a plan to develop into an annual festival event with ambitions to grow into a must attend fixture in the live music events calendar with the ability to attract high calibre bands and artists with both national & international profiles.
