Writer & MC: Helen Shield
Featured artists: Grace Chia, Christopher Coleman, EWAH, Nick and Tom Wolfe (of The Wolfe Brothers)
Band: Casey Kostiuk, Jethro Pickett, Scott Targett, Tom Wolfe.

“Looking out across the auditorium, the dim light illuminates the wide-eyed and smiling faces of the audience, their expression is one of sheer joy. Toes tap and shoulders sway. Culture is being made here and now in real time. This is Tasmania in song. This is our story.” – Magdelena Lane
