Join us to celebrate the last Saturday of this year’s Festival with one huge arts extravaganza.
The WRAP is just that – a Wicked Random Arts Party to see off the 2016 Darwin Festival with a bang! We’re taking a corner of the city and turning it into the headquarters for a festival within a festival, with artistic encounters just waiting to be discovered in every nook and cranny.
Your entry ticket gives you access to a multitude of pop-up performances and random happenings from every possible artform – and some you didn’t even think possible. Enter through Brown's Mart Courtyard to begin your journey through the unexpected.
Spend the early hours of the evening going from mind-bending multimedia to intimate performance experiences, from spontaneous choirs to participatory dance events. Drawing together a stellar line-up of guest artists from the Festival program and beyond, genres clash and tastes are teased with The WRAP’s eclectic offerings.
As night falls, join the crowd at our new WRAP main stage for a program of music that will have you partying until the wee hours. Marvel at the pop-locking prowess of ALIMANGO – an Asian beats explosion. Get onboard all the buzz and mystique of Slum Sociable and their self-described ‘lo-fo’ jazz hop sound. Delight in the multisensory experience that is Client Liaison, a group whose dance electric, new jack swing and ‘pop ballad’ music plays out like a long lunch followed by a round of cocktails. Then end the night with a special WRAP guest line-up from our Club Awi producers to get you jumping!
The WRAP is a must-do Festival experience that will have the whole town talking. Check out an artist you know doing something a little different, take a risk on something you wouldn’t normally go and see and most of all have a fabulous time at The WRAP!
