Share the Spirit is a community-based festival that celebrates the survival of First Nations peoples in Australia held on January 26 – Survival Day.

Created by Songlines Aboriginal Music in 2003, Share the Spirit is an important cultural gathering for local and regional communities.?It presents a reminder to all Australians that despite the many great accomplishments Australia has achieved as a nation, Nationhood has come at a cost to the country’s First Nations peoples.

The festival is a diverse showcase of First Nations music, art, craft and culture. For 2023, the theme is Continuum: Those Who Tell Their Story In Song.

The stellar line-up is led by multi ARIA Award-winner Dan Sultan, plus Jessica Hitchcock and Bumpy.

More artists will be announced in the new year.

Share the Spirit is a free, non-ticketed event that is drug and alcohol free. As with every Songlines event, we invite all to attend and offer a safe space for everyone. We look forward to Sharing the Spirit with you all!

Event partners include Arts Centre Melbourne and City of Melbourne.
