World records and city limits were broken last month as thousands of revellers flocked to the Outback for the kick-off of the world's most remote music festival - the Birdsville Big Red Bash in Queensland's Simpson Desert.
The first day of Australia's biggest outback event, Tuesday July 16, began with a bang, as 2330 boot-scooting bush dancers broke the World Record for the Largest Nutbush Dance.
The new World Record broke the previous record of 1719, which was set at last year's Big Red Bash.
To beat the record dancers must correctly follow the steps to the Tina Turner classic for five minutes.
.A new world record with a good cause to boot, participation via registration in the event raised a total of more than $25,000 for the festival's charity partner, the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Midnight Oil were the headliners at the festival which attracted 9000 people.
The Big Red Bash will return in 2020 from July 7 to 9 with the entertainment lineup to be announced later this year.
