The Alice Desert Festival is Central Australia’s premier annual arts festival, celebrating the desert and its rich cultural landscape.
Presented by Red Hot Arts Central Australia, the Festival shares the stories, songs and the unique lifestyle of the Red Centre’s arid region. Featuring a vibrant program born out of the desert landscape, it celebrates the dynamic exchange between cultures in the heart of Australia.
Your show presented with our support across 5 great venues and 3 public outdoor spaces through the spring festive season in Alice Springs, Central Australia.
Since 2001 the Desert Festival has been working to develop the Spring shoulder season as a nationally recognised destination for arts and cultural events. This has been achieved through promotion, incubation of leading events and development of sector capacity.
From 2018 The Festival is working with existing venues to fill out Alice Springs as a festive experience for tourists and locals. This will present as a season of content and give your show the space to attract its own audience.
