Top end hip-hop star Baker Boy can’t wait to ditch the winter woollies and perform to his home crowd in Darwin for Territory Day.
“I haven’t been home in so long! Too keen to be back up in the heat and see all my family,” he says.
Baker will join Neil Finn, Stevie Jean and Rachel Rachel on the line-up for the Darwin concert.
He says it’s a special day to be coming back home, and he’ll be letting his hair down with his crew.
“It means a lot to me because NT is my home and where my life and career all kicked off and I’ll be forever grateful the lessons I’ve learned, and continue to learn, as a person and musician,” he says.
“It’s been a long leg of touring and festivals so far so I owe it to my crew and myself to let off a few fireworks and have fun in the heat before we go back to very cold Melbourne.”
Katherine residents can catch pop-twins The Veronicas supported by Caiti Baker and Craig Phillips.
Baker says she’ll perform a special set with producer James Mangohig in K-town.
“We’ve got a duo hip-hop set that hasn’t been done in a very long time and it seems appropriate we do it together on Territory Day,” she says.
Baker says Territory Day is an opportunity to reflect on the lifestyle and appreciate those around us in the NT.
“Being a Territorian is special in that life here is unique to the rest of the country,” she says.
“We have a more laid back approach to life and we have a different perspective to the rest of the world.
“We live in a special place in the country and we should hold that close to our hearts.”
