David Bowie Let's Dance video still

Let's Dance Carinda is a festival that will take place in the New South Wales town on 8-9 October.

The Australian town where David Bowie's Let's Dance video was filmed is set to hold a tribute festival this weekend.

Carinda in New South Wales is paying homage to the late rock star with a two day event which takes place this Saturday and Sunday, from 8-9 October.

The event will commence with an opening ceremony performed by an Indigenous Dance Group, and will include a set from singer-songwriter, Lady Stardust.

The iconic 1983 video - directed by David Mallet and David Bowie - famously depicted indigenous Australians, and featured the Warrumbungle National Park near Coonabarabran.
