He came to Birdsville in 2016 when the event was washed out off the dune but now Paul Kelly is back and ready to rock the Big Red Bash in 2020.
Kelly is one several Aussie rock legends who will be getting the amps out in the Simpson Desert next July 7-9.
He will be joined by Tim Finn, John Williamson, Kate Ceberano, Ian Moss, Shannon Noll, Dragon, The Radiators, Mi Sex, Wendy Matthews, Thirsty Merc, Marc Gable, Dragon, Glenn Shorrock, Caitlin Shadbolt and more.
Kelly headlined the Bash in 2016 when heavy rain forced the event to be moved to the Birdsville Oval.
He said he was looking forward to headlining the 2020 Big Red Bash and experiencing the desert landscape.
"I'm really looking forward to playing under a big sky again," he said.
In 2013, the Big Red Bash was born from John Williamson performing solo on top of Big Red now he returns seven years later.
"I will forever remember performing on top of Big Red," Williamson said.
"I'm looking forward to returning again to a festival and event that celebrates our beautiful country with a great line-up of entertainers. This is just another reason I encourage everyone to go and explore our big backyard".
Kate Ceberano said she was also excited to return from 2017 and 2018.
"The location is so unique - it's just like a lunar scape, with the earth and the sky divided in equal measure. It's set up cradled in the arms of this amazing 40 metre red sand dune, where the kids can go crazy," Ceberano said.
"I'm not kidding you when I say that it's one of the greatest events I've ever personally been part of. And some of the greatest artists from around the country will gather to perform there again next year. Everything that ailed me in Melbourne was suddenly cured when I got out to the Simpson Desert last time, and I can't wait to get back out there for Big Red Bash 2020."
2019 crowd favourites Bjorn Again will also return by popular demand for the eighth edition of the all-ages festival, along with Steve Balbi, Chocolate Starfish, Ross Wilson and Vika and Linda Bull.
Tickets to the 2020 Big Red Bash will go on sale from the festival's website next Thursday, September 19.
