Nokturnl is a band formed in 1996 in Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia. Sometimes called rap metal; their music is hard to categorise,[1][2] but their lyrics are influenced by their experience as Indigenous Australians. Nokturnl won "Band of the Year" at The Deadlys in 1998, 2000 and 2003.[3][4][5]

They signed with Festival Mushroom offshoot Sputnik Records in December 1999. Their first release, Neva Mend, was nominated for an Aria Award for Best Alternative Release in 2000. The video for Neva Mend also received a nomination for Best Video.[6]

They have toured in Europe[7] and in Brazil.[8][9] They toured Australia with Spiderbait,[10] and have supported Powderfinger and Regurgitator, they have recorded with Spiderbait, Machine Gun Fellatio and Primary, and have performed at the Survival Festival Concert (1998) and Big Day Out (2000).[11] On 3 July 2000 they performed a live set for TripleJ's Live at the Wireless. Channel V aired an hour-long documentary on 16 October 2000 featuring live footage shot on 28 July 2000 at a show with Midnight Oil in Alice Springs.

Their music has been featured in the films Radiance, Yolngu Boy and Saturday Night, Sunday Morning.
