Darwin’s pride in celebrating diversity that connects us

The 2024 Darwin Pride Festival will celebrate the Top End’s LGBTQIA+ community this weekend with a colourful programme packed with music, theatre, dance, and cabaret.

This year the four-day celebration will take place from Thursday 20 June to Sunday 23 June. On Saturday, the Waterfront from the Convention Centre to Fort Hill Parklands will be transformed into the Pride Precinct with the popular Family Day, colourful Pride Parade and the Darwin Pride Music Festival.

The music festival will be headlined by multi-platinum selling and ARIA nominated Ricki-Lee. The Australian pop diva will be making her Darwin debut and joins a diverse line-up including international party DJ YO! MAFIA and singer/songwriter Bec Sandridge, Jojo Zaho and Victoria Anthon.

Those looking to join in the celebration can take part in a huge variety of activities and events across Darwin such as the inaugural Darwin Pride LGBTQIA+ Film Festival, an original play, King Paddy, written exclusively for Darwin Pride Festival and a Queer Cabaret and Pride Comedy night.

Top End Pride (NT) Incorporated Chair Sean Taylor said: “I highly encourage all members of our Darwin community to come and celebrate the differences that connect us and join in with the exciting programme we have put together, and many thanks to our amazing sponsors”. 

This year’s theme for Darwin Pride Festival is ‘Celebrating the difference that connects us’.
