making darwin weirder
Happy Yess is a DIY music venue that exists to support local original Darwin music. It is a not-for-profit arts organisation that only hosts original bands and runs on love from the dedicated crew of members, artists and volunteers.
Created in 2006 to champion the underground, Happy Yess provides a place for bands and artists of all genres to grow and experiment and a beautiful venue for locals to meet and enjoy live music in a friendly, drama-free environment.
HAPPY YESS IS THE ONLY VENUE IN DARWIN WHERE ALL OF THE DOOR TAKINGS GO DIRECTLY TO THE PERFORMERS
it's not just about the music!
We have arty stuff as well as gigs. Arty stuff includes: visual art exhibitions, spoken word, film, karaoke, lecture nights, open mic jam nights, comedy, ping pong, drum n bass bingo, weirdo book club, whatever. There’s a million awesome things happening - and if there still isn’t what you’re looking for you can host it yourself!
