The Birdsville Big Red Bash is the most remote music festival in the world – located on the edge of the Simpson Desert against a backdrop of rolling red sand dunes and with music spanning the best of Australian artistry – both veteran and contemporary.
There’s not venue like it to hear great live sounds, since the Simpson Desert is the world’s largest parallel sand dune desert covering an area of more than 176,000 square kilometres, that is larger than the country of Belgium!
This year’s Big Red Bash features a roll call that is absolutely huge, with performers to include Paul Kelly, Tim Finn, Wendy Matthews, John Williamson, Ian Moss, Kate Ceberano, Dragon, The Radiators, Mi Sex, Thirsty Merc, Marc Gable and many more.
It all takes place on the weekend of July 7-9, so start making plans now.
Whether it’s Paul Kelly singing ’To Her Door’,’ John Williamson crooning ‘True Blue’ or Wendy Matthews breaking our hearts all over again with ‘The Day You Went Away’, festivalgoers can expect a classic playlist of Aussie anthems performed live in one of the world’s most unique and quintessentially landscapes.
Oh, and for raucous time, crowd favourites Bjorn Again – who took to the stage on camel-back in 2019 – will return by popular demand for the sixth edition of the all-ages festival, along with Steve Balbi, Chocolate Starfish, Ross Wilson, and Vika and Linda Bull.
Goodness, do we have to go on, folks? No, of course not. Ticketing details are below.
