Desert Festival

DESERT FESTIVAL 2020 IS HERE.

It’s time to return to our roots!

We’re celebrating nothing but our great Central Australian talent which continues to positively define and enrich our community. Over ten days and nights, we’ll relish in all things music, theatre, film and art created right here in our own backyard and commemorate twenty years of the festival.

There’s something for everyone in our 2020 program with a wonderful variety of shows, interactive kids workshops, a virtual reality film, book launch, art exhibitions and more.

Download the full program here, see our one page festival schedule here, or browse events by category below.
