Garma Festival of Traditional Cultures


Garma 2020 Ticket Holder Information

The Yothu Yindi Foundation regrets to advise that this year’s Garma Festival has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The decision reflects our fundamental concern for the continued health and wellbeing of Yolngu families in our very remote region.  We ask for your patience as we reconcile matters relating to cancelling our 2020 event.

If you have already purchased tickets to Garma 2020, you now have two options to consider.

  • OPTION 1: You can claim a full refund on your ticket; or
  • OPTION 2: You can roll over your ticket for next year’s Garma.

For both options, please log in to your members area and select your preference.



Ticket-holders have until close of business Friday 29 May 2020 to choose one the options above.

If you take no action, event organisers will automatically credit your ticket to attend next year’s event currently scheduled for Friday 30 July - Monday 2 August 2021. 

All Garma volunteer applications for 2020 will be considered for 2021. If you have applied for Garma 2020 and do not wish to be part of the 2021 intake please contact

Friday 30 July - Monday 2 August 2021
