The Aboriginal Music Week Stage presented by Rhythm 104.7FM at the Austin Street Festival will be completely free. Audiences can expect a family friendly environment (no beer gardens) with great sound and exceptional music in a great community setting. Aboriginal Music Week produces concerts in neighbourhoods throughout the city in an effort to make it easier for families to walk to the venues, but music lovers from outside the neighbourhood are more than welcome to attend.

The concert is set for an outdoor stage on Austin Street.
