Barunga community is counting down the weeks until its cultural event of the year.
The first of the music line up has been announced.
More than 4000 people from across the NT and beyond are expected to convene at the remote Indigenous community 80 kilometers southeast of Katherine.
Returning in June this year, Barunga Festival is set to celebrate traditional and contemporary Indigenous music.
This year's line up will include talent from across Australia including: Mambali Band (Numbulwar), Nabarlek Band (Manmoyi), Wagilak and the Australian Art Orchestra, Billy Jack (Gumbaynggirr), Justine Clarke, Wire MC (Gumbaynggirr), Sang Mei Chang (Taiwan), Tasman Keith (Gumbaynggirr), Mick Coates and Archer.

Maintaining its long and proud position as one of Australia's most important cultural events, the festival will be held over three days, from Friday, June 7 to Sunday, June 9.
The event has become an important and immersive experience for both First Nations Australians and travellers seeking unique and genuine Indigenous Australian connections.
Hip Hop artist Tasman Keith said he is proud to be sharing a stage with three generations of Gumbaynggirr musicians.
"Family is everything to me. I grew up around it with my Dad and my grandfather," he said.

"Since I've started making moves they come up all the time. They tell me I've got my father's face. People that I wouldn't expect.
"Now that I'm on a similar path as them, I can see how hard they would've worked, and I'm proud to step up with them."
The festival has long been a place of progress for First Nations Australians.
Last year, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten delivered a speech slamming the Federal Government for turning its back on a treaty.
He also confirmed his commitment to providing overdue compensation to survivors of the Stolen Generation.
The original Uluru Statement was also a fixture across the three days last year - with hundreds of people adding their support to the travelling document.
Barunga Festival has a healthy food policy, as well as 100 per cent drug, smoke and alcohol-free policy to ensure the family spirit of Barunga community is maintained.
