National Indigenous Music Awards reveals performance lineup
The National Indigenous Music Awards (NIMAs) has announced the performing lineup for its ceremony, scheduled to take place at the Darwin Amphitheatre on August 7.
The ceremony will feature sets from Baker Boy, Miiesha, Electric Fields, King Stingray, Dallas Woods, Kee’Ahn and Alice Skye, among other acts. The evening will be hosted by Black Comedy star Steven Oliver.
The NIMAs announced its return to an in-person ceremony last month following a virtual event in 2020. NITV will once again sign on as a broadcast partner.
Creative director Ben Graetz said this year’s ceremony will centre around the relevant themes of collective experience, healing and reflection.
“The vision for this year’s awards is to draw on our opportunity to come together and celebrate in person and as a community. We will reflect on our journey over the past year and acknowledge each other’s personal stories of being able to push through the challenging times but also finding gentle opportunities in these moments,” he said.
“This year we focus on healing as a community and how, through the magnetism of music, we can make this happen.”
