SBS Director of Indigenous Content and Birri and Guugu Yimidhirr woman, Tanya Denning-Orman, said, We're celebrating the power and strength of First Nations voices with an amazing line-up of some of the best in Blak music in this country joining NITV at Uluru to mark this special 10-year milestone.

We've got icons like Troy, Christine and Casey back on our special outdoor stage performing as the sun sets, alongside some of the most exciting talent making waves in the industry The stars will be shining bright on stage and in the sky over Uluru, and what better way to bring all Australians together to celebrate the joy and significance of having a dedicated platform championing First Nations voices and perspectives available free-to-air on NITV.

Lucky there's not a roof because we'd be bringing it down with what is set to be a magical night and incredible moment in Australian broadcasting history.

Musician Troy Cassar-Daley, said, Being at the launch of NITV ten years ago was very special for me, however being a part of their 10th anniversary out at Uluru again will be amazing.

My late Mum was always watching NITV when I'd visit her down home. We agreed that the channel was a lifeline to our culture, a constant reminder of who we are and how we are all so similar. It's also an open door to learning for all Australians.

Celebrations continue throughout summer on NITV, with an original line-up of programming including a suite of news, food, entertainment, documentary and drama premieres.
