All roads will lead to Carinda when the small village celebrate the life of David Bowie on the 8th & 9th of October 2016.
Bowie had a deep connection for the Australian Outback, a strong interest in Aboriginal culture and his song and film clip â€˜Letâ€™s Danceâ€™ was performed at the Carinda Hotel. Following the entertainerâ€™s death on January 10th 2016, the idea was bornÂ and plans are well underway forÂ this huge tribute in the bush!
