The heart of the outback is set to come alive again in 2024, with the two Outback Bash Festivals announcing their all-star Australian lineups.
The Birdsville Big Red Bash is set for July 2-4, 2024, and the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash runs from August 15-17, 2024. Tickets for Birdsville go on sale at 10 am AEDT on October 17th at bigredbash.com.au. The Mundi Mundi tickets go on sale two days later, October 19th at mundimundibash.com.au/.
Headlining the Birdsville Bash will be Tina Arena and Jon Stevens, with another 30 artists included in the lineup. These include Ian Moss, Colin Hay, Tim Finn, Diesel, Baby Animals, Vanessa Amorosi, and more.
James Reyne will be making his outback debut at the Mundi Bash with the likes of Jon Stevens, The Living End, Ian Moss, Darryl Braithwaite and Tim Finn, to name just a few. If you missed Furnace and the Fundamentals this year, fear not; they are playing both events.
On what will be her very first performance at the Birdsville Big Red Bash, Tina Arena commented,
“I’m absolutely thrilled to be headlining 2024’s Big Red Bash. I’ve stood on many interesting stages in my time, but never on one nestled in front of a 30-metre-high sand dune – I can’t wait! See you all in the Simpson Desert”.
The Birdsville Big Red Bash and Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash are all-ages, dog-friendly camping events that run across three days. The festivals offer a uniquely Australian adventure for families, grey nomads, camping and caravanning enthusiasts and intrepid travellers. Festival-goers can expect an exciting lineup of artists, bands and cover acts representing many music genres, from rock, pop, folk, country and more, guaranteeing something for everyone to kick up the dust to.
There are events such as the “Nutbush City Limits” dance-off, Mad Max dress up, Sunrise yoga, dunny door painting, helicopter flights and “the Muni Undi Run”, which keeps everyone interested.
With good roads leading to both events, there’s no need to worry about needing a 4WD. Both events now offer an extra 3-day roll-in option in addition to the 2 and 1-day early roll-in passes that can be purchased. While there is no scheduled entertainment on this day, it will allow festival goers to arrive early, get set up and kick back getting to know their Bash neighbours ahead of the festivities kicking off.
Both the Birdsville Big Red Bash and Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash events will be BYO alcohol for both the campsite and concert areas, and ticket holders are also permitted to bring their own food. There will also be an extensive range of food vendors selling hot and cold food and non-alcoholic beverages at the events, and each event has dog-friendly camping and concert areas.
