The Outback Music Festival Group, organisers of Australia’s biggest Outback events, the Birdsville Big Red Bash, and new sister event the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash, have announced an incredible line-up of Australian rock legends to perform at each of the iconic red-dirt locations in 2022.
Jimmy Barnes and Missy Higgins will headline both festivals alongside Kasey Chambers, Jon Stevens, The Rolling Stones Review Starring: Adalita, Tex Perkins & Tim Rogers, Bjorn Again, Sarah McLeod, Ash Grunwald, Mick Thomas (Wedding Parties Anything), Bachelor Girl and Melanie Dyer.
Big Red Bash will also welcome Kate Ceberano, Richard Clapton, Shannon Noll, Jack Jones, Dragon, The Radiators, Mi Sex, Chocolate Starfish, and Steve Balbi.
Daryl Braithwaite, The Black Sorrows, Richard Clapton, Russell Morris, The Wolfe Brothers, Busby Marou, Pierce Brothers, Eurogliders, The Buckleys and Kyle Lionhart will perform at the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash, with more local artists to be announced.
Festival owner and Managing Director of the Outback Music Festival Group Greg Donovan, says, “There’s not another gig in the country that offers anything like the spectacular 40-metre-high Big Red sand dune in the Simpson Desert, or the rugged Barrier Ranges on the Mundi Mundi Plains as a performance backdrop. It’s an exciting year ahead and we know there’s a huge appetite for our events, so we’re expecting tickets to go fast. We’ve been a sell out for the last four years and with ongoing hesitation around overseas travel we’re banking on people wanting to explore their own backyard and visit these iconic locations, taking in the amazing line-up as part of that experience.”
He adds, “Our events are run on two of the most remote Outback locations in the country, renowned for their rugged beauty and amazing landscape. Both the Birdsville Big Red Bash and Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash are camping based with awesome Outback activities and a killer music line-up – they’re a true bucket-list experience.”
In addition to the music line-up, each event will also feature a jam-packed program of outback activities – from a Nutbush City Limits World Record dance off attempt to a Mad Max costume dress up world record attempt at the Mundi Mundi Bash events, comedy and outdoor film screenings, scenic helicopter flights, camel rides and charity initiatives such as the ‘Bashville Drags’ at the Birdsville Big Red Bash and the ‘Mundi Undie Run’ at the Mundi Mundi Bash – both runs raising funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Tickets for the Birdsville Big Red Bash (July 5-7, 2022) and the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash (August 18-20, 2022) will go on-sale on November 25, 2021 at 10.00am AEDT from www.bigredbash.com.au and www.mundimundibash.com.au.
