This year’s Territory Day music line-up has been revealed, and in Darwin it promises to be an evening of fireworks, food, and a flyover!

Legendary Aussie Blues Rock band Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows will kick off the festivities in the Top End at the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets, which are on from 4pm on July 1st.

They will be followed by Wildfire Manwurrk, a homegrown rock outfit formed out of Maningrida, Arnhem Land with their own original performance, as well as Battle of the School Bands winners QWYA and Reverie.

Celebrations at the markets will close with an F-35A flyover and a colourful fireworks display.

If you’re down in Alice Springs you will have the chance to take part in a colour fun run and catch local rock duo Wolfpack Amadeus live.

In Tennant Creek, The WMC All Stars, Newboys, and Charlie T will be performing and Dr Elephant will be rocking the Nhulunbuy stage.

Katherine will be celebrating Territory Day with a music and dance party, and of course fireworks at many family-friendly events.

Major Events Minister Paul Kirby said Territory Day was one of the “proudest days” on the NT calendar and encouraged residents to get out and celebrate this year’s theme, ‘the people make the place’.

“There will be plenty of chances to celebrate all over the Territory, with fireworks events scheduled from top to bottom of this incredible place we live, work and play in,” he said.

“What a fantastic opportunity to see local artists performing on stage for one of the biggest days in the Territory, alongside such beloved national talent.”

A pair of lucky Territorians will also win a $2500 luxury NT stay thanks to the NT Government and NT Major Events. To go in the draw all you need to do is submit a photo of someone who makes the Territory special to you before 11:59pm on June 29.
