Australia’s most unique bucket list music experience – Birdsville Big Red Bash – is set to return this July 16-18 July, 2019, drawing more than 9,000 festival-goers to the remote red sands of Queensland’s Simpson Desert for an epic line-up of Outback entertainment and live Australian music acts, headlined by Oz Rock legends Midnight Oil.

Taking place over three bumper days and nights during the winter school holidays, the all-ages and dog-friendly event will see Midnight Oil perform a one-off and once-in-a-generation performance against the striking backdrop of the legendary 40-metre-high Big Red sand dune.

The Oils’ Big Red Bash performance is the first show announced for the band on Australian soil since their hugely successful Great Circle World Tour in November 2017, and the first time they have headlined a multi-day Australian music Festival since Woodford Folk Festival in 1996.

Joining Midnight Oil will be a host of all-time Australian music greats including ARIA award-winners The Living End, Richard Clapton, 1927, Kasey Chambers and Wendy Matthews, as well as Neil Murray, Busby Marou and many more.

Tickets from $90 available here.
