Australian country music legends John Williamson and Warren H Williams have been added to the Boomerang Festival in October.
The Boomerang Festival, dubbed the new world indigenous festival for all Australians, will be held on the October long weekend at the Tyagarah Tea Farm at Byron Bay.
John Williamson has invited Warren H Williams to perform with him at the Festival. “Whilst John Williamson is scheduled to perform his own show, he has confirmed that he looks forward to inviting Warren to join him for a song or two.
