Visit the heart of the Festival – your space to play!

Our dazzling Festival hub is where you’ll find all the action under the twinkling lights and the stunning bamboo designs by Techy Masero. Every night of the Festival (except Mondays) we’re turning the city’s Civic Park into a hive of artistic adventure – and everyone’s invited!

There’s free fun aplenty. Chill out or get up and groove to music from a diverse range of Territory talent on the Darwin Port Bandstand. Get acquainted with a pack of giant illuminated furry friends at Lost Dogs’ Disco and discover roving performers on select nights throughout the Park. You might bump into a giant seagull or find yourself caught up in a SILENT DISCO.

Make a night of it by indulging in tasty treats from around the world, made with love by Darwin foodie favourites. Refresh yourself at one of our bars and enjoy the Festival Gin 2024 Edition created especially by Willing Distillery.

Buy a ticket to experience some of the best circus, music, family, comedy and cabaret acts going around, all performing on the INPEX Sunset Stage. Check out the walls of the venue, which will be given a dazzling new look by Larrakia artists Trent and Jason Lee.

Stay out late on a Friday or Saturday night and dance the night away to a diverse line-up of DJs at Club Awi.

Festival Park is the perfect place to start or end your night. Drop by before or after a show or settle in and soak up the atmosphere.
