STOMPEM GROUND RETURNS TO BROOME AFTER 22 YEARS
EXPERIENCE THE POWER AND THE PASSION OF THIS UNIQUE ABORIGINAL CULTURAL EVENT featuring MIDNIGHT OIL on 17 September 2022
The wait is over, Kimberley Stolen Generation, Mary G Foundation and Mellen Events are delighted to present the return of Stompem Ground, an electrifying day of contemporary and traditional Aboriginal music, dance and culture on Saturday 17 September at the Father McMahon Oval, Broome.
Midnight Oil, who last played this event in 1998, will be performing their classics from across the decades and songs from their new album, Resist. The Australian favourites will be appearing alongside The Pigram Brothers, Blekbala Mujik and many more great Kimberley artists including Yatangal, Footprince, King of Hearts and Seaside Drifters interspersed with a staggering cast of indigenous dancers to complete the idyllic scene of a balmy Broome night.
After 20 years, Australia’s far north west will again come alive to the sights and sounds of a captivating celebration of the spirit of Aboriginal people of the Kimberley region set to the theme of ‘the time has come to say fair’s fair’. The hotly anticipated event celebrates the Kimberley Stolen Generations Aboriginal Corporation’s 21st anniversary and 25th anniversary of the Bring Them Home Report.
