Darwin Festival

Santos has been a major sponsor of Darwin Festival since 1996. The Company supports the festival’s opening night, better known by locals as the Santos Concert, a free community event celebrating the unique mix of multicultural performances which define Darwin and the Top End.

Darwin Festival is an 18-day celebration of music, theatre, visual art, dance, cabaret and more in the beautiful tropical city of Darwin.  Enjoy the festive atmosphere, delicious food and drink stalls, and free performances at the heart of the arts, Festival Park, and various venues across Darwin, as the Festival activates the city.

The Darwin Festival Santos Opening Concert in 2015 was a great success, with around 3,000 people gathering at the Darwin Amphitheatre to watch and listen to Clare Bowditch, Thelma Plum and Emma Donovan.

The 18 day festival traditionally kicks-off with the Santos Concert, and this year the crowd was wowed by a line-up of three of the best voices in Australia.
