We are well and truly in build mode at Festival Park, with bamboo, fish, festooning and jellyfish all being installed as we speak. Our outdoor ticketed venue, INPEX Sunset Stage, is taking shape and artists Trent Lee and Jason Lee are currently giving it a new look for 2022.

The great gigs continue all through the Festival and finish on a true high with Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir on Sat 20 August and Ngaiire on Sun 21 August. We've thrilled to have Ario Parks, Alex the Astronaut, Elsy: Wamey:o, TroP-ical F Storm and Confidence Man all taking in the Top End while on tour. They're joined by the likes of Jaguar Jonze who's just finished her debut album dates and Telenova about to launch and tour a new EP. And if that wasn't enough to get you moving and grooving, don't forget Club Awi is on late every Friday and Saturday. Where better to get your open air club vibes! Comedy is also king on the INPEX Sunset Stage and we guarantee laughs aplenty with Zoe Coombs Marr, TriP-od.and Dilruk Jay:asinha just to name a few!

And of course keep up the fluids - we
