Great Atmosphere and Performances
Aug. 2019
Its a perfect way to spend a night out. We started at Festival Park which had a great, relaxed atmosphere. We grabbed some food from one of the many stands and a few drinks from the bar. There is loads of seating arrangements and grass areas to sit down. After, we bought a ticket to Neon which was a comedy/musical/circus performance, it was excellent! Whilst you are in Darwin, make the most of this festival.

Fantastic Darwin Festival!
Aug. 2019
The Darwin Festival's entertainment line up offers something for everyone, from comedy, dance, music and more. Festival Park is humming each evening with a variety of food and beverages, perfect for catching a show at the Lighthouse. Highly recommend travelling to Darwin in August to attend some brilliant shows in this perfect tropical city brimming with activity.

Perfect weather, perfect events
Aug. 2019
Just watched Cal Wilson and she was great, I haven't seen her in person before but after some festival food and drinks it was a great show. Roll on the rest of the events, much more to go to yet.

Darwin is buzzing
Aug. 2019
Highly recommend this festival, there is something for everyone. Festival Park has a great atmosphere with free entertinament and food stalls selling a good selection of food, it does get a bit busy before a performance but otherwise it has a great relaxed chilled vibe.

Not to be missed!
Aug. 2019
Darwin Festival rocks. Accessible, edgy, fun and on in the dry season which is the best weather you will see in Australia. If you are in Darwin while it is on you shouldn't pass up the opportunity to take a gander. There are usually booklets in the mall that you can get for free that will give you the entire schedule.

Thanks, Joel. We think our hot August nights are pretty special too. You will find our printed program guide in plenty of locations across Darwin from late June each year. Plus our full program is listed on our website too.

Fantastic Night out!
Aug. 2018 • Couples
I attended Darwin Festival in 2018 for the first time and loved it. I attended a performance of Limbo, which was a mash up of cabaret, a bit of circus and acrobatics. It was a fantastic night out. I am hoping to one day go back to the festival and attend some of their amazing music performances. Highly recommended!!
