Birdsville's own Big Red Bash, an annual festival hosted deep in the heart of the Simpson Desert, has revealed a belter of a lineup to usher in 2020.
Paul Kelly returns to headline the biggest Big Bash yet, with 19 Aussie stars in a 20 strong total lineup including, Tim Finn, John Williamson, Ian Moss, Kate Ceberano, Shannon Noll, Dragon, The Radiators, Mi Sex, Wendy Matthews, Thirsty Merc, Marc Gable and more.
This stunning collection of Aussie stars accounts for 25 ARIA Awards, 27 CMAA awards, over 100 albums and a hell-of-a-lot of hit singles.
Returning for her second Big Red Bash event, Kate Ceberano said, “The Big Red Bash event is out of control! The location is so unique – it’s just like a lunar scape, with the earth and the sky divided in equal measure. It’s set up cradled in the arms of this amazing 40 metre red sand dune, where the kids can go crazy.”
“I’m not kidding when I say that it’s one of the greatest events I’ve ever personally been part of. And some of the greatest artists from around the country will gather to perform there again next year. Everything that ailed me in Melbourne was suddenly cured when I got out to the Simpson Desert last time, and I can't wait to get back out there for Big Red Bash 2020,” added Kate.
Located at the edge of the Simpson Desert in front of 'Big Red', a 40-metre high sand dune come ampitheatre, the Bash is the World's most remote music festival, with a combined 40 million kilometres of travel accrued by its 9000 participants. Big stuff from Big Red - tickets for next year's run will go on sale Thursday September 19, at 9am.
