City West Housing was a proud sponsor of Koori Radio 93.7FM for an event held over 5-days at the Byron Bay Blues Festival 2017.

Koori Radio 93.7FM made community broadcasting history with their first ever live outside broadcast over 5-days (30 hours in total) at Boomerang / Bluesfest 2017. They were granted a space at the event to broadcast from at the Boomerang Precinct.

The Boomerang Festival is an unrivalled cultural event that features an array of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music, dance, theatre, comedy, film and visual arts, along with cultural knowledge exchanges and thought provoking conversations.

Koori Radio broadcast live from Boomerang at Bluesfest 2017 from Thursday 13th April – Monday 17th April 2017. The Live Broadcast was on air from 12pm-6pm over the 5 day event over their fm signal, via digital radio and streamed globally .

Bluesfest is held at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, which is a short drive from Byron Bay and Brunswick Heads.

"The 2017 Koori Radio 93.7fm Boomerang/Bluesfest Live Outside Broadcast Team would like to thank CITYWEST HOUSING for your support of the project. Without your support the project would have not been able to have happened. We were honored to be able to share your targeted messages with Community over the live outside broadcast duration, and look forward to future opportunities with you again".
