The festival, which lasts from Thursday August 5 to Sunday August 22, will play host to two special live music events that will both be held at the Darwin Ampitheatre.
Saturday August 7 will mark the 2021 National Indigenous Music Awards, which is returning to a live format after it was live-streamed in 2020.

Then, on Friday August 13, Flight Facilities will be bringing their new live show and a string of special guest vocalists to Darwin Ampitheare. In addition, they’ll be supported by the likes of Confidence Man and Sycco.
Tickets for both the 2021 NIMAs and Flight Facilities’ performance go on sale from 9am Thursday 27 June via the festival’s official website.
While the festival’s full program won’t be announced until Friday June 18, it has already been revealed that Miiesha will be playing a show of her own at Festival Park’s INPEX Sunset Stage on Friday August 6.
