Desert Harmony Festival

Friday 3- Tuesday 7 August


Amongst the red dirt and under a blanket of stars come and immerse yourself in desert culture and be a part of our remote Territory town for an authentic outback experience!

The Desert Harmony Festival is hosted by Barkly Regional Arts in Tennant Creek, Northern Territory. The Festival is our region's platform for the culturally diverse population to present, engage, participate and access the arts. On Warumungu lands (Tennant Creek), our predominately Indigenous community, travel across the arid landscape to enjoy 5 days of music, dance, art, film, food, theatre, workshops, adventure tours, sports and cultural activities.

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

Our 29th Festival will focus on the theme of 'Place and Belonging'.

The Festival is an opportunity to understand Tennant Creek and the Barkly region and experience the beauty we see every day and offers a chance to learn and truly immerse yourself in Indigenous culture and a be a part of an outback town.

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