The Big Red Bash

Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to see a lot of outback Australia through the windscreen of a 4×4, and it’s a sight I never tire of, so when I heard that the 2019 Big Red Bash was being featured on 7’s Sunday Night Show program, I had to catch it.

The Big Red Bash is a three-day family-friendly combination of desert camping and performances from some of the countries top music artists. First held in July 2013, it’s billed as the world’s most remote music festival, which is certainly no exaggeration.

The concert and campsite grounds, known as Bashville, are located on the Adria Downs cattle station, 35 kilometers west of Birdsville in outback Queensland’s Simpson Desert. With the backdrop of The Big Red sand dune towering more than 30metres above the desert floor, this natural amphitheatre makes for the most spectacular concert setting, particularly under the desert night sky.

This last July the festival was a sell out with a record 9,000 people attending, so if you’re thinking of being a Big Red Basher in 2020, you had better be quick. Here’s the website which gives you all the information:
