Festival Description

The Bellingen Global Carnival is a world music, dance and arts festival celebrating Australian cultural diversity. Staging 5 performance areas, the event presents traditional, classical and contemporary concerts reflecting the diverse face of modern day Australia. Workshops are held throughout the weekend as well as outdoor physical theatre and the program includes a children’s festival with professional child minding and crèche facilities.

Art, craft and photography are exhibited and the program also includes a forum for discussing social and cultural issues as well as a market arena providing delicious food and craft from around the world. The festival, which has strong links with the ‘world music’ community in Australia, concentrates on an experience that enables the audience to have an intimate encounter with the performers and their art form. There is a focus on contemporary music which draws from different cultures and juxtaposes the new with the more traditional.
