National Indigenous Music Awards
The National Indigenous Music Awards (NIMAs) are recognised as one of Australia’s most prominent Indigenous music awards and have been celebrating Australian music for 16 years.
The NIMAs showcase the rich musical landscape of Australia and highlight the music coming from all corners of the country. The Awards bring together acts who are yet to make their mark on the world alongside those who have achieved international acclaim, such as Gurrumul & Jessica Mauboy.
Held annually under the stars at Darwin’s historic Amphitheatre, The NIMAS bring audiences from all over Australia together to applaud the winners, enjoy the performances and soak up the ambiance of a night for music lovers of all ages and all cultures. Musicians such as Yothu Yindi, Gurrumul, The Tableland Drifters, Warren H. Williams and Arnhem Land rockstars Saltwater Band have performed and won awards as well.
The NIMAs are a special celebration of Indigenous music: a family friendly, not-to-be-missed event in the Darwin entertainment calendar and the Australian music calendar.
Recognising the important place the event holds for its artists, past and present, as well as its audience, the NIMAs program a huge night of performances as part of the award ceremony, positioning it as a major music festival on the National event calendar.
The 2020 National Indigenous Music Awards will be broadcast on NITV and simulcast across the country on Facebook, DoubleJ, NIRS, Twitter and Youtube on the 8th August.
There is a special screening party at the Deck Chair Cinema in Darwin with more information available HERE
