Kuranda Roots - FNQ’s festival of World, Reggae, Soul and Bass Music returns for its 22nd birthday at Kanjini Campground at the foot of stunning Emerald Creek Falls.


Kuranda Roots celebrates the creative magic of the Kuranda and Far North Queensland community, alongside global guests, cultural and well-being workshops, and a food and craft market village.

Kuranda Roots Festival pays full respect and acknowledges the importance that Black Music (Reggae, RnB, Soul, Hip Hop, Jazz, Blues and many more genres) plays in the living history of contemporary music. We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter movement and Stop Black Deaths In Custody. We also cherish the rich culture of First Nations people of Australia and the Pacific who bring us to a state of reverence and connection to country. Massive thanks and praise to the Buluwai and Djabugay bama on whose land we celebrate on.

Always was and always will be Aboriginal land!
