I will discuss the prospects for the detection of astrophysical neutrinos and dark matter at future large-scale direct dark matter detection experiments. Focusing on neutrino signals, I will emphasize how this detection will improve upon our understanding of solar, atmospheric, and supernova neutrinos in this regime. I will connect these measurements to on-going terrestrial experiments that are searching for coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering. I will discuss how this neutrino signal may ultimately be differentiated from a dark matter signal.
