Darwin Festival

The Northern Territory’s biggest cultural celebration, Darwin Festival, has announced a jam-packed program of performances, exhibitions and events to take place in August 2016 (Thursday 4 August to Sunday 21 August), under Darwin’s tropical skies.

Locals and visitors to the Top End will experience some of the most exciting and talked about local artists and performers as well as national favourites and handpicked international talents. There’s a world of choice including: one of Australia’s biggest names in comedy, Peter Helliar in One Hot Mess; Broken, a play by acclaimed literary local Mary Anne Butler; Nocturnes by one of Australia’s most celebrated pianists Tamara-Anne Cislowska, and a country blues snapshot of the life of Broome’s own Stephen Pigram.

Festival goers are also in for a treat with WRAP: The Wicked Random Arts Party, a huge arts extravaganza of pop-up performances, experimentation, creation, music and party.

Reflecting the heritage and respecting the diversity of Australia’s northern-most shores, this exciting program is multi-disciplinary, encompassing and embracing all art forms including theatre, music, cabaret, art, conversation, dance, comedy and family fun.
