Join us on the Sunset Stage for the launch of the long-awaited full-length album from Top End song dogs David Garnham & the Reasons to Live.

The follow up from last year’s EP One Man Down, Noise to Fill the Void was recorded with ARIA and Golden Guitar-winning producer Shane Nicholson and showcases the bands thoughtful mix of hope and hopelessness. Hear it live and under the stars at this special launch event.

To properly celebrate this momentous occasion, we’ve invited the sweetest sounding men’s shed around to kick off the night’s music. Darwin’s own Choir of Man is one of the world’s premier mid-tier amateur choral groups. Comprising teachers, tradies, public servants and jobseekers, Choir of Man celebrates a sensitive masculinity in a powerful, charmingly rugged live performance.

Get your dose of Americana country folk from the tropical north from David Garnham & the Reasons to Live. They may look like truckers, but they sing like angels.

  • Garnham weaves love, loss, heartbreak and humour into his own particular brand of whisky-soaked nostalgia.
