International star Timmy Trumpet joins Territory Day line-up

One of the world’s top-ranked DJs is set to touch down in Darwin to spice up Territory Day festivities on August 29.

Timmy Trumpet was named among the top 10 DJs in the world by the UK’s DJ Mag last year and will light up the stage at Mindil Beach at 7pm before the fireworks light up the sky from 8.15pm.

The iconic Aussie DJ said he was looking forward to returning to Darwin for an “insane” performance.

“Every time I come to Darwin I have an amazing time. You guys know how to party! I can’t wait to play my brand new music that I’ve been working on all year,” he said.

Aussie alt rock band Eskimo Joe remains part of the Darwin celebrations, and will be on stage from 5.45pm, until Timmy Trumpet takes over.

Eskimo Joe Lead Singer Kav Temperley said the band was excited to be playing in Darwin for Territory Day.

“In a year full of bad news this is going to be great fun and we can’t wait to finally play a show, our first in over a year,” he said.

Territory pop-punk band Danger Den and Darwin songbird Emily Penny will complete the line-up on the Mindil Beach stage hosted by DJ/MC Hello Bass.

The Territory’s own Emily Penny said she was looking forward to being a part of the Territory Day events.

“This will be the biggest crowd I have ever played to and we are so lucky to be able to celebrate like this. I am both excited and terrified all at the same time,” she said.
