Bunuru Festival bands set to rock at Riflebutts

The Undalup Association has announced an impressive line up of Indigenous artists set to entertain the crowd at the Act Belong Commit Bunuru Festival at Riflebutts Reserve on March 13.

Festival Director Rachelle Cousins said the program included artists such as Downsyde, Struggling Kings and Flewnt to cater to all age groups and music preferences, with a particular focus on youths.

"Downsyde is always a popular addition to the Bunuru Festival, as is the solo dance performance by classically trained Aboriginal dancer Michael Smith," said event co-ordinator, Lisa Chatwin.

"Undalup Association is proud to be able to create opportunities to promote Indigenous artists and inspire the next generation through events such as the Act Belong Commit Bunuru Festival.

"James Jackson is a local Aboriginal boy inspired to purse a music career after attending the Birak Festival in 2018 and he was thrilled to meet Downsyde at the 2020 Bunuru Festival during his impromptu performance.

"As an up-and-coming Aboriginal artist local to the Margaret River region, Undalup Association is proud to create an opportunity for James to develop his music while entertaining participants at this year's festival."
