The world’s most remote music festival will reverberate the desert for the 7th time, with 2019 featuring headline acts Midnight Oil, The Living End and Kasey Chambers.
We know seeing Midnight Oil at Big Red has long been on the wish list for organisers and adventurers alike. For more line-up details, visit the official Big Red Bash website here.
More than just an incredible music festival, there’s scenic helicopter flights, the Royal Flying Doctor Service Bashville “Drags”, or if hilarious blokes in skirts hurtling down hills in heels isn’t your thing, you can don your own best duds and compete in the Fashions in the Desert competition! Proceeds from the fashion comp and drags go to keeping the RFDS flying and servicing our remote communities.
Sand-board down Big Red, take a camel ride, weave your magic with indigenous craft-making, stir up the dust in desert boot-scooting. Are we going for another Nutbush record in 2019? Wallop a volleyball in the Big Red Beach Volleyball games. Plenty of excitement for everyone of all ages. It’s time to start planning your desert crossing now whether by 4X4 or flying in, or even catching the Rock’n’Roll Charter Bus if you don’t want to drive yourself. Camping is on site at ‘Bashville’ or roughly 30km away in Birdsville itself, and don’t forget to bring your doggo!
The 2019 Birdsville Big Red Bash will be held again on the 16th to the 18th of July 2019 in the Simpson Desert. Be sure to visit the official website for tickets, volunteer information and more details about the great program of events. See you there! For more info, click here.
