Description 

Join Darwin Festival Artistic Director Felix Preval, Northern Territory Library Heritage Coordinator Dr Samantha Wells, Skinnyfish Managing Director Mark Grose in conversation with former Artistic Director of Darwin Fringe Festival Cj Fraser-Bell as they traverse the exciting, diverse and sometimes controversial history of festivals in the Northern Territory.

Ranging from the early history of Aboriginal corroboree to community gatherings, from the Bougainvillea Festival to our own annual celebrations at Darwin Festival and everything in-between, this is a history of the Northern Territory through celebration.
