Tickets to the 2018 Birdsville Big Red Bash are now on sale.

Tickets for the festival have sold out well in advance in previous years so festival-goers are being urged to get in quick to avoid missing out.

The Bash, now in its sixth year, is a music festival like no other located on the edge of the Simpson Desert, offering a truly unique experience.

This years line up is set to impress with Aussie rock icon John Farnham head lining the all-star line up kicking-off with Australian artists Busby Marou and Adam Brand on the first day, followed by a variety of talent including the Hoodoo Gurus, Amber Lawrence, Wolfe Brothers, Black Sorrows, Angels and returning artist Travis Collins on the second day.

Collins is a Bash veteran and is thrilled to be returning again next year, saying he’s beyond excited to be heading out to Birdsville for the Big Red Bash.

“It’s my first time with my own music, I truly can’t wait,” Collins said.

“I was there in 2016 (with Adam Brand and the Outlaws), the crowd were amazing, the atmosphere was incredible and the location purely and uniquely spectacular.

I immediately began crossing my fingers to return with my own songs and show someday – looking forward to it and counting down the days already.”

The final day of the festival features a wide slate of talent including Russell Morris, Kate Ceberano, John Stevens, Darryl Braithwaite and headliner John Farnham.   

The 2018 Birdsville Big Red Bash will take place July 10-12, 2018 in the school holidays.

Free camping is available across all three-days – it’s dog friendly and BYO.

A family pass is also available for $995, including entry for two adults and two children unlimited youth and child, plus booking fee.  Keen campers also have the option of early entry, choosing to stay another two nights to ensure they are fully set up before the festival – enabling a flexible and relaxed outback experience.
