Australia’s unique Birdsville Big Red Bash is the most remote music festival in the world and a music festival like no other – located on the edge of the Simpson Desert just 35kms out of Birdsville, Queensland, at the iconic Big Red sand dune, which towers 10 storeys high.
The Bash is now in its sixth year and the stellar 2018 festival line up includes Aussie rock icon John Farnham, Busby Marou and Adam Brand, the Hoodoo Gurus, Amber Lawrence, Wolfe Brothers, Black Sorrows, The Angels and Travis Collins. The outback scenery provides a spectacular backdrop to enjoy some of the country’s best-loved musicians, with breathtaking views of the vast desert expanse and remote starry night skies.
Families, travellers and music lovers flock to the Bash each year from all across the country and beyond. More than 6000 visitors attended the sell-out 2017 festival, with many using the opportunity to embark upon a lengthy journey throughout the remote Australian outback. Intrepid travellers can visit many other towns en route to the Bash, with many of those towns participating in travel incentives and offering entertainment for visitors driving through.
The 2018 Birdsville Big Red Bash will take place from 10-12 July 2018, aligning with the school holidays and allowing families to schedule the Bash into an outback holiday adventure. Free camping is also available across all three-days, which is also dog friendly and BYO!
