Homeground, the Sydney Opera House's free immersive festival of First Nations culture, returns to the Western Broadwalk on 21 - 22 November 2015 bigger and better than ever, with an expanded program of music and dance, the Homeground Arts Market and inaugural Dance Rites competition.
This year's line-up includes A Tribe Called Red, Getano Bann, Tibetan throat singer Tenzin Choegyal, fusion stars OKA, Pataphysics and the iconic Archie Roach, along with a rich and diverse dance program that includes eXcelsior, Jannawi Dancers, Koomurri, Malu Kiai Mura Buai Dance Troupe, Rako Dancers (Rotuma/Fiji) and Wagana Dancers.
Sunday 22 November also features the grand final of Dance Rites, a ground-breaking new competition open to community dance groups from across Australia, that aims to reinvigorate vanishing Indigenous cultural practices. The winner of the competition will receive a $15,000 prize and the opportunity to perform at Homeground 2016.
