National Indigenous Music Awards postponed

Annual event due to screen on NITV is delayed due to COVID around the country.

The National Indigenous Music Awards, which were due to screen on NITV & VICELAND, have been postponed by organisers due to COVID havoc across the country.

It was originally scheduled for August 7 at the Darwin Amphitheatre, but restrictions interstate have made it increasingly clear the festivities have to be paused to ensure performers and nominees can attend.

“It is unfortunate yet the best choice for all our artists and community that we move this year’s event to ensure the night celebrates togetherness,” said NIMA Creative Director, Ben Graetz.

“Community support and ticket sales have never been higher than this year and it is clear that First Nations artists have never had more to celebrate. We look forward to having the opportunity to honour the incredibly talented artists who have contributed to putting First Nations music on the world stage at a later date in 2021.”.

All ticket holders will be contacted with the opportunity to hold onto their tickets for a new date or offered a refund.
