This year’s EK Concert for the Kimberley was another huge success – but what else would you expect when you have friends like Missy Higgins, The Mexicans, The Nomadics, Charlie McGee, Tanya Ransom, Wil Thomas and their friends?
People flocked from all over for this very special opportunity to celebrate the Kimberley with Missy Higgins, and a host of top quality local and visiting musicians, right here in Broome.
With tickets sold out at the Convention Centre, over 74,000 people across the world joined us online to hear about the work of EK and watch a live stream of Missy’s Set.

EK sends the biggest thank-you to Missy and all the other musicians for donating their time and talents. As well, special thanks go to Mick Connolly and the Broome Chinatown Convention Centre, Chris Maher, Damian Kelly and to everyone else who helped out to make this annual event fantastic once again.
Our appreciation also goes out to everyone who supported this event by joining us on the night, in person or online, as well as to everyone who became an EK member, or generously donated – with all your help we were able to raise over $20,000 to support the work of EK – Thank you!
Missy’s support for protecting the Kimberley has been solid for 10 years now and this is what she said about EK:
"The Kimberley holds a special place in my heart so I’m always happy to help EK out to help protect it. I want my kids and grandkids to experience the same wonder and magic of this country, as I have.”
