Darwin Festival is Australia's hottest winter arts festival, attracting audiences from interstate and around the world while still retaining its strong community heart.

The Festival's program reflects Darwin's position at the Top End of Australia, its unique Indigenous and multicultural population and its close proximity to Asia.

Darwin Festival showcases some of Australia's finest performers in spectacular outdoor venues that take advantage of the Top End's blissful Dry Season weather each August.
