Survival Perth 2012

This year, the 26 January, marks 40 years since the start of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra, the champions of which will be acknowledged at the Survival Perth 2012 Concert.

The Survival Concerts are celebrated nationally to acknowledge the resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples since the arrival of the First Fleet, which Australia Day commemorates. The Survival Concerts have been held in Perth since 2000 and are historically linked to NAIDOC.

This alcohol and drug free event will have free admission and will showcase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music and dance and along with food, kid’s activities, an Elder’s tent and a large array of community stalls. Survival Perth will feature a talented line-up of Western Australian artists performing music and dance across a diverse range of musical styles including country rock, hip-hop, soul and mainstream contemporary.
