Making Noise for Territory Music

The NT music industry's night of nights returns, this year held on Arrernte Country for the very first time. Previously known as the NT Song of the Year Awards, this year's NT Music Awards (NTMAs) celebrates the incredible talent, innovation and dedication of the local music industry.

The event includes a selection of award categories that recognise artists, technicians, organisations, venues and events at the heart of our diverse sector. Music NT Executive Director Mark Smith says it’s an industry well deserving of recognition.

“Celebrating its second year, the NT Music Awards continues to shine a light on music from the NT, and showcases one of the most vibrant creative regions in the country,” he says.

“Bringing the NT Music Awards to Alice Springs in 2023 is the opportunity to recognise the NT’s most exciting music in one of the country's most exciting music scenes.”

In future years, the awards ceremony will alternate between Alice Springs and Darwin to share the love with audiences on other sides of the Territory, and to make sure Territorians that make up the unique fabric of the NT's music industry are properly recognised and celebrated.

At the June edition's time of print, the finer details of the big event are still being fine tuned, but keep an eye on Music NT’s socials and website for all the juice.
