Desert Harmony Festival

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

See a different side to Tennant Creek when the Barkly Region lets its hair down for festival time, with music, stories, theatre, film, and parades.

The Desert Harmony Festival is hosted by Barkly Regional Arts on Warumungu lands (Tennant Creek, Northern Territory). Our predominately Aboriginal community members travel across the arid landscape to enjoy 5 days of music, dance, art, film, food, theatre, workshops, tours, sports and cultural activities.

In 2017, the Festival will be held in various Tennant Creek locations from Thursday 3rd to Monday 7th of August.

The Festival program is a healthy combination of professional and locally produced work which showcases the talents in the Barkly region, community performances and Australian productions which travel to collaborate with local artists on truly unique shows.

Our 28th Festival will focus on the theme of 'Dreams and Dreaming (Winkarra)', where stories and interactive live cooking will take centre stage with a feast of performances in and around a cooking space.

This is an opportunity to understand Tennant Creek and the Barkly region, to learn about and immerse yourself in Indigenous culture, and experience the beauty we see every day in Outback Australia.

The Desert Harmony Festival is for everyone, especially for those seeking an adventure in a VERY remote Australian destination.
