Presented by MusicNT

Mob, family, friends and fans – pack a picnic join us under the stars for a huge celebration of Indigenous music.

After two long hard years of false starts and virtual ceremonies one of Australia’s most important music events returns to Darwin. The National Indigenous Music Awards (NIMAs) welcome back the broader Australian music community to the picturesque home of the Larrakia people, for a night honouring the achievements and diversity of Indigenous music.

Over the past 14 years the NIMAs has grown to become the leading event on the First Nations music calendar, providing an important platform for the industry’s biggest artists, as well as paying respects to those who have paved the way for the new breed of talent.

With Thelma Plum and King Stingray just the tip of the live performance iceberg, the night is set to be a true celebration of what has been a huge year of First Nations music.
