Festival organisers announced the much-anticipated dates for the 2020 Birdsville Big Red Bash, following a sold out 2019 edition that saw more than 9,000 revelers flock to Queensland's Simpson Desert.
The 2020 Big Red Bash will run from July 7 to July 9 with tickets to the eighth edition of the world's most remote music festival set to go on sale in October 2019.
Announcements regarding the festival's 2020 music lineup, as well as ticketing details, will be made in the coming months - with event organisers promising another jam-packed program of iconic Aussie rock and unique outback entertainment and activities.
"We have had an amazing response from festival-goers who attended this year's Big Red Bash, which only wrapped a few short days ago," Big Red Bash founder and organiser, Greg Donovan said.
"We've been inundated with hundreds of queries regarding next year's festival dates, as punters begin to plan their trip back out to the desert for the 2020 Bash.
"This year was a sold out event, with record attendance numbers - and it already feels like there's a huge amount of interest around next year's event, which is why we've chosen to announce the dates for the 2020 Big Red Bash so early."
Staged in the Simpson Desert outside of the remote Queensland township of Birdsville, the 2019 Big Red Bash attracted more than 9,000 festival goers from every Australian state and territory, as well as abroad - marking the largest incarnation of the event since its founding.
Record ticket sales for the 2019 Big Red Bash came on the back of one of the biggest billings in the event's history. Proudly supported by the Queensland Government via Tourism and Events Queensland, the bucket list music experience has grown exponentially to generate around $11 million in annual revenue for Outback Queensland.
