The Merrepen Festival offers a full weekend of activity, so it's worth planning to make a weekend of it in the beautiful Daly. Highlights of the weekend are the Saturday night concert, the Art Sale and Art Auction on Sunday, and the Fi Weaving Tours.

7pm Saturday 2nd June

The evening will begin with a traditional dance performance from the renowned Djilpin Dancers from Beswick Community.

Sisters & Friends Concert

A concert with Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier, Leah Flanagan and Band and the Emu Sisters
On the banks of the Daly River. Bring a picnic basket and a rug.

The Emu Sisters

The sisters are from Wadeye. The singers are women who sing in one of the rarest languages in the region called 'Murringarr'. They are part of the new wave of artistic cultural 'maintenance' and use their music as an instrument of language and cultural preservation. The Emu Sisters provide an honest and enduring musical inspiration that is rare to experience anywhere but the Northern Territory.
