The Birdsville Big Red Bash is set to Rock the Simpson in July 2018 with John Farnham headlining a stellar three day festival line-up of artists including The Hoodoo Gurus, The Angels, Daryl Braithwaite, Jon Stevens, Kate Ceberano, Adam Brand, Busby Marou, Russell Morris, The Black Sorrows, Travis Collins, The Wolf Brothers and Amber Lawrence, performing in the heart of the Australian outback.

John Farnham said he is looking forward to ticking the Bash off his own bucket list for his first appearance on stage beneath the 10-storey high Big Red sand dune.

“I’m really looking forward to the Birdsville Big Red Bash. The Simpson Desert and the remoteness of this event REALLY appeals. Can’t wait to get out there.” Farnham said.

Farnham is joined by a host of other legendary performers including several artists who are returning to the Bash after crowd favorite previous appearances, including Kate Ceberano.

"I had the most amazing time on many levels! The space and the foreignness of being in the middle of nowhere sharing an experience with thousands of people from literally ALL over Australia! Very special experience! The organisers and Birdsville itself are the real-est most authentic people you'll find," she said.

Queensland native musician Adam Brand and the Crackup Sisters will host this year’s festival – with stunts, acrobatics and laughs guaranteed to entertain the whole family, alongside a program of dancing, drag races, busking and family and dog friendly events.

The Bash, now in its sixth year, has gained international recognition as the world’s most remote music festival, situated on the edge of the Simpson Desert in Queensland. The family friendly festival is on during the July school holidays from the 10th to 12th allowing festival goers to travel from far and wide for this famous bucket list outback experience.

So it’s time to round up your friends and family and start planning your epic outback road trip and adventure to Birdsville and the Bash.
