The Birdsville Big Red Bash has sold out with record numbers.
More than 9000 festival goers will attend the 2019 Big Red Bash - the largest since its founding in 2014.
Record ticket sales for the 2019 Big Red Bash come on the back of one of the biggest billings in the event's history - and further solidify the festival as Australia's biggest Outback event. Supported by the Queensland Government via Tourism and Events Queensland, the bucket list music experience generates around $11 million in annual revenue for Outback Queensland.
Running from July 16-18, 2019, this year's Big Red Bash is headlined by Midnight Oil, who are set to give a once-in-a-generation performance against the striking backdrop of the spectacular 40-metre-high Big Red sand dune.
The Oils will be joined by Kasey Chambers, The Living End, Busby Marou, Richard Clapton, 1927, Wendy Matthews, Neil Murray and many more.
Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones said a sold out Birdsville Big Red Bash will be a great boost for jobs in the tourism sector in the region.
"The 2019 Birdsville Big Red Bash could well be the best one yet. Outback Queensland is getting ready to host thousands of visitors who are making the journey to the western edge of the state to take part in this iconic event, hosted in a truly unique landscape," Ms Jones said.
"The fact this event has sold out is a testament to the hard work of the event organisers and the local community. The Queensland Government is proud to support this event via Tourism and Events Queensland because it does a great job of drawing visitors to the state, showcasing Outback Queensland and providing real economic benefit for the people in this region."
