Alice Desert Festival
7/09/2012 to 16/09/2012
The Alice Desert Festival is Central Australia’s premier arts and cultural festival, celebrating the desert and its peoples.
The Alice Desert Festival shares the stories, songs and the unique lifestyle of Central Australia’s arid region. Featuring a vibrant program borne out of the desert landscape, they celebrate the dynamic exchange between cultures in the heart of Australia.
Artists, dancers and musicians from some of the remotest communities in Central Australia perform beside a selection of Australia’s hottest acts.
Indigenous musicians drive hundreds of red dusty kilometres to perform in the Bush Bands Bash. Wild bush foods are harvested and cooked into succulent dishes and choirs sing amidst ancient desert landscapes of gorges and gaps.
The Alice Desert Festival attracts audiences of around 50,000 people from around Australia to over 50 events across its season. The festival presents an atmosphere not found anywhere else in Australia, where strong traditional cultures and a vibrant contemporary arts community, work together in presenting an amazing 10 days.
Admission costs apply to some shows.
