The Isotopia Festival is an all ages, all faiths, all tribes, alcohol and drug free, family friendly event to celebrate life and our clean Northern Territory environment through art, music, film and dance.
We seek to bring all different people from throughout the NT and Australia together to collectively seek solutions to the common problem for all of us, the nuclearisation of Australia.
Musically an outstanding lineup of bands and soundsmiths will be presenting a broad fusion of genres including hip hop, drum & bass, doof, trance in all of its sub genres, experimental electronica, atmospheric, tribal, power funk, reggae, jungle, electro dub, roots & dancehall, disco and probably more.
For your intellectual and informational pleasure we will be presenting a range of cutting edge Australian films and documentaries that highlight the problems we are all facing from the expansion of the nuclear industry in Australia.
A range of highly educated speakers will be making presentations concerning various aspects of the mining/power/weapons/waste cycles, the impact of this cycle on local and indigenous communities.
Isotopia is being presented so that people from the NT can access a range of different viewpoints concerning these important issues. Unfortunately the debate we are supposed to be having in Australia and the NT about the nuclear cycle has been hijacked by industry, so that dis-information and outright lies are prevailing and it is nearly impossible for alternate viewpoints to be presented through our tightly controlled media.
This is not a protest per se, we do not encourage blockades or other forms of direct action. This is an attempt to get everyone to educate themselves and realise that knowledge is power.
Industry would like you all to be kept in the dark and they are relying on ignorance and apathy to achieve their ends.

Isotope noun Chemistry
a radioactive form of an element; in particular, each of two or more forms of the same element that contain equal numbers of protons but different numbers of neutrons in their nuclei, and hence differ in relative atomic mass but not in chemical properties
ORIGIN 1913: coined by F. Soddy, from iso- [equal] + Greek topos ‘place’ (because the isotopes occupy the same place in the periodic table of elements).
