Kuranda Roots, will be back in it’s 13th year in 2017. Our philosophy is of One Love and Peace to all cultures and creatures and we extend a huge welcome to young and old to join us to celebrate the Solstice on the 23rd and 24th June. Join us for a camp out under the stars, sitting by the fire, learning tradtional and contemporary dances or mashing up the dancefloor to world class reggae, bass and soul artists. 

The festival is part of an exciting Far Northern festival circuit that lures an influx of people from interstate, starting at Happy Daze in Mackay, Kuranda Roots, Laura Dance Festival and culminating in Bushweek in Rossville. The festival pilgrimage takes in a diverse variety of music styles and cultural performances set against the stunning backdrop of Queensland’s East coast, including the fascinating cave country of Cape York and lush tropical rainforest of the coastal ranges.

CAMPERS - We will have camping onsite and next door for overflow camping. Only 20 minutes from the site are some amzing creeks and national parks, including Davies Ck, Emerald Ck and the world famous Barron Gorge. 

There's also plenty of food and drink stalls inside the festival and a regular shuttle bus into the village.

TICKETS - coming soon to: www.tickebooth.com,au Shiva Moon, Cairns Happy Herb store, Shi Sha Beads, Sweet Leaf Cafe and Fetish 4 Life.
