The Gurruwiling Eclipse Festival

The Gurruwiling Eclipse Festival on November 14th 2012, in Arnhem Land, will celebrate a total solar eclipse with a Cultural Arts and Music Festival unlike any other!

The Yolŋu peoples of Ramingining and Gurruwiling invite you to not only watch the eclipse, but to also participate by dancing in a ceremony to heal and to celebrate unity under the back drop of a total solar eclipse occurring at sunrise.

The Festival will feature live music, cultural workshops and Buŋgul workshops teaching Yolŋu and Balanda (non-Indigenous), the traditional dance for the eclipse ceremony.
Over 40 Indigenous and non-Indigenous bands, musicians, djs, performers and dance troupes will be entertaining audiences throughout the four day event.

Some highlights of the line-up are - The Sunrize Band, Dunganda Street Sounds, Bunna Lawrie and the Whaledreamers, and Barry Brown and The Get Down.
