With multi-platinum albums, and 7 ARIA awards, the announcement comes after Hilltop Hoodselectrifying performance at the Clipsal 500.
NT Major Events General Manager Andrew Hopper said the entertainment would add an exciting element to an action-packed weekend.
“I am excited to announce Hilltop Hoods will be headlining the Saturday night concert,” Mr Hopper said.
“The Supercars weekend generates great exposure for the Northern Territory as a tourism destination and provides a boost to the local economy through business and hospitality.
“Fans will certainly be in for a 20th birthday treat on what is one of the biggest weekends on the Territory sports calendar.”
Regarded as one of Australia’s hardest working bands, Hilltop Hoods will perform hands in the air favourites from their swag of platinum hits after a day of racing and entertainment at Hidden Valley.
“I would like to congratulate Hilltop Hoods for taking the number 4 spot with 1955 in triple j’s Hottest 100 and ILLY with the number 7 spot for Papercuts,” Mr Hopper said.
Sunday’s entertainment will see ARIA Hall of Fame legend Russell Morris and the world’s first travelling dance party Hot Dub Time Machine continue the party well into the night.
