First nation artists will take the spotlight at the 2020 Port Fairy Folk Festival.
Iconic Indigenous Australian performer Archie Roach will feature along with country men and women Paul Grabowski, Sally Dastey, Benny Walker, Emily Wurramurra, Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse.
The Australian contingent will be joined by international first nation performers Ego Lemos (Timor Leste), Hubert Francis (Canada) and Mihirangi Fleming, Mm Mihirangi & the Mreikura (New Zealand).
The festival will present a First Nations - Songs & Stories concert, which will be hosted by Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse.
Port Fairy Folk Festival program director Caroline Moore said the first nation artists would provide a festival highlight.
''We have had the privilege to engage with communities from around the world, and we are delighted to bring many together for one magnificent gathering in our beautiful Port Fairy," Ms Moore said.
"This festival is about drawing people together through music and storytelling, gaining insights into lives and other cultures.
"These artists represent a variety of genres and are stellar in their own right.
"Underpinning their work and art is the folk philosophy, a story and the capacity to inspire and provoke thought.
"I am truly honoured to be welcoming these artists to our magnificent seaside village where for one long weekend, we will be an incredible global community with a great deal of love and hope in our hearts."
Stages at the festival will be renamed into words of the Peek Whurrong language.
Among the changes are Stage 1 will now be Pyipgil Gundidj, stage 2 Mirteetch, stage 3 the River Stage - Warinoong, the Lighthouse Stage will now be Maleen and The Shebeen will be Kirnaa.
A new dedicated Children's Circus space will be called Thookay, the Pavilion renamed Marrarr Woorn and the Flag Circle changed to Kurween.
Gunditjmara/Kirrae Whurrong musician Brett Clarke said the naming of venues with Peek Whurrung words would create an opportunity for people to learn the local language.
"The recognition of Indigenous history with the naming of the venues in the local language is great news," Clarke said.
