- Desert Divas Open Bush Bands Bash For 2015
The Bush Bands Bash is now in its 12th year and has grown to become one of the biggest music events in the Central Desert Region, showcasing and celebrating contemporary Aboriginal music and language.
To kick of the event, the Desert Divas took to the stage to open the show. Starting up in 2006 with six participants the DD has tripled in size and now includes Diva programs in Darwin, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs. This year the Divas have eight girls who have been through song-writing workshops and have been handling intense rehearsals the past few days to get ready for the special showcase. All the songs performed the girls wrote in the past three days and tell their stories about their values, hopes and dreams.

- Bush Bands Business 2015
The 2015 Bush Bands Bash is back for another year, showcasing some of the best music to come from the desert region! As one of the biggest Aboriginal music events in the Northern Territory, the BBB allows desert bands to take part in sharing their music with both national and international crowds. Before jumping on stage to wow crowds with their music, the bands must take part in a three day business skills camp which teaches the bands how to deal with artist management, festival programming, publicity and other activities and workshops which see the bands grow from strength to strength.
