Oz FestNew Delhi
AGB Events was engaged by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to deliver the spectacular OzFest opening night, staged in the historic 15th century Purana Qila monument in Delhi.
AGB Events produced specially commissioned light projections and decorative treatments, a stunning display of cultural diplomacy in the presence of the Hon. Prime Minister of Australia Julia Gillard and a host of Indian and Australian dignitaries, celebrating both Indian and Australian Aboriginal culture. The projections formed the backdrop for performances by Iconic Aboriginal Australian singer (now referred to as) Dr G Yunupingu, Indian sitarist and composer Anoushka Shankar, twice-Grammy-nominated and Songlines Best Artist 2012 winner, and Australian didgeridoo virtuoso Mark Atkins.
AGB Events delivered Australia’s biggest ever cultural event to be held in India which was designed to enhance and celebrate our economic, cultural and diplomatic ties.
The success of the concert was reported extensively in both Australian and Indian media and acknowledged as not only a symbolic moment in the diplomatic relations of the two countries, but as a successful promotion of Australia as an attractive investment, tourism, business and study destination.
