The Desert Song Festival, the annual celebration of cultural diversity and artistic brilliance, will be returing to stages and venues in Central Australia for its sixth annual incarnation in the Spring of 2018.

Desert Song Festival in 2018 will mount its most ambitious program yet.

Its theme will be: “What a Wonderful World! – celebrating global heritage.” A bold artistic innovation will bring together musical traditions from India, Africa, the Americas and Central Australia, to celebrate our shared global musical heritage. The Festival will be bookended by two major events staged in Tjoritja – the West MacDonnell Ranges- to celebrate connection to country. And, for the first time FILM will be added to the festival program with screenings of the celebrated documentary ‘The Song Keepers’ – the extraordinary story of the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir.

Offering a unique opportunity to connect with the perpetual custodiand and with the majestic Ranges and Gorges of Central Australia as its backdrop and heritage venues within the built environment of Alice Springs as its stages, this festival will present the visitor with a compelling reason to ‘do the NT’, by visiting ‘a town like Alice’ to attend the Desert Song Festival.

Over 10 glorious days of music and music-making- 7-16 September, in concerts, workshops and masterclasses, the choirs, small vocal ensembles, musicians and solo performers, will showcase the cultural diversity and artistic brilliance of Central Australia celebrating the singer, the song, the instrument, the land and its people.

WHEN: Friday 7th to Sunday 16th September 2018

WHERE: Araluen Performing Arts Centre, Araluen

COST: Varies
