10,000 punters to converge on the iconic Simpson Desert 'before too long'
As of yesterday October 24, all tickets to next year's Birdsville Big Red Bash have officially been snapped up, and just a month after going on sale!
The outback gathering and all-ages event is officially the most remote music festival in the world. Set in front of the iconic 'Big Red' 40m sand dune, a sight familiar to 4WDers around the country, the event will run from July 7-9 in 2020.
With 10,000 tickets selling out in record time - a larger allocation up from 9,000 in previous years - it's fair to say that the outback celebration of Aussie culture is going from strength to strength.
“2020 will see the biggest line-up in Big Red bash history, and we hoped that tickets would sell fast,” said Big Red Bash Founder and Organiser, Greg Donovan.
“With a beautiful, unique destination on offer, we have been a sell-out event for the last few years – and had thought we would sell-out before Christmas. But to do so after only a month – and with an extra 1,000 tickets to sell this year, it’s extraordinary."
Singer-songwriter legend Paul Kelly leads the festival bill, along with 19 Australian and New Zealand music icons including Tim Finn, John Williamson, Kate Ceberano, Ian Moss, Shannon Noll, Dragon, The Radiators, Mi Sex, Wendy Matthews, Thirsty Merc, Marc Gable, Glenn Shorrock, Caitlin Shadbolt and more.
