Archie Roach, Australia's most beloved Aboriginal singer and songwriter, is appearing Live at the Four Winds Windsong Pavilion, Barragga Bay on the beautiful NSW south coast. Fondly referred to as "the voice of his people", Archie is also the voice of many Australians nationwide. It could be said that through his long and distinguished career, Archie has sung of suffering, pain and injustice in a manner more effective than his contemporaries. Live shows are a great way to get to know the story of Archie's life from childhood through to his recent battle with life threatening illness and this event is an incredible opportunity to see, hear and meet the man "up close and personal", in an amazing acoustic concert environment. A moving and inspiring evening, full of joy and hope through music - don't miss Archie Roach Live @ The Windsong Pavilion.

We have so much to show you, and a sublime program to make your heart sing.

NATURE'S CONCERT HALL

Four Winds Festival is more than just exquisite music. It’s more than just a gathering of some of the finest musicians from around the world.

It’s also about a very special place we call Nature’s Concert Hall; 30 acres of open and wooded parkland, an open-air amphitheatre with grassed tiers that drop gently down to a stage framed by a lake that reflects the changing colours of the sky and is home to the frogs that sing along.

The new Windsong Pavilion, a purpose-built indoor recital hall, is now ready and available for year-round events and performances. The completion of the Windsong Pavilion and the Sound Shell marks a new beginning for Four Winds and the opportunity for us to secure our place in Australia’s musical life and identity.

The site will become an important centre for our community, the region and beyond, where world-class cultural events will play out against the backdrop of our beautiful surroundings.
