Ghost Gum Rhythm & Blues is an annual music event that celebrates community, good music and good vibes on Arrernte Country every May. Now in its 5th year, this beloved community event showcases diverse talent from near and far under the silver ghost gums of Ilwempe Ilwempe, White Gums.
Dust off your picnic blanket, pack your snacks and get ready to boogie - this year sees our biggest lineup yet, including two VERY special interstate guests, unique collaborations and after much request, an earlier start time of 3PM! 
Make sure you come early to settle in and soak up our majestic desert sunset. ‘Kids Corner’ will be happening from 3-6, with facilitated, free and fun activities for the little ones.
Follow our social media accounts for updates, line up announcements and travelling to and from the event info.
