Tickets for the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash music festival, an all-new event on the outback activities calendar, has sold out.
Inspired by the Big Red Bash at Birdsville, the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash takes the same concept and transplants it to the Mundi Mundi Plains, north of Broken Hill.
The new event, scheduled for 19-21 August, will bring a stellar line-up of Australian rock legends to Broken Hill, including Paul Kelly, Ian Moss, John Williamson, Tim Finn, Kate Ceberano, Glenn Shorrock, Ross Wilson, Vika & Linda, Wendy Matthews, Shane Howard, Shannon Noll, Dragon, The Radiators, Chocolate Starfish, Mi-Sex, The Chantoozies, Bjorn Again, Mark Gable, and Steve Balbi.
In addition to the music line-up, the Mundi Mundi Bash will also feature a packed programme of outback activities – from a Nutbush City Limits World Record dance off attempt to comedy and outdoor film screenings, scenic helicopter flights, camel rides and the charity initiatives such as the ‘Mundi Mundi Undie Run’ fundraising for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
An all-ages and dog-friendly event, the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash will be held on private land on the Mundi Mundi Plains, with the Barrier Ranges in the background.
Situated 35km north of Broken Hill and near the historic town of Silverton, the Mundi Mundi Plains is a rugged and remote location, but it is also easily accessed, with sealed road leading right up to the event site – ensuring those looking for a unique outback camping or caravanning experience can attend without needing four-wheel drives.
Tickets went on sale on 23 March, with the full compliment of 10,000 sold by 11 May.
“We were backing our gut that we were onto a good thing, but never in my wildest dreams did I anticipate that the first Mundi Mundi Bash would sell-out this quickly,” said Festival owner and Managing Director of the Outback Music Festival Group Greg Donovan.
“I am as relieved as I am ecstatic. It was a big call to jump into launching a new festival in these times, and I am so grateful to all those who have backed us – from our patrons to my family and event team, and the NSW Government.
“There has been very little to celebrate for those of us working in the music and events sector since COVID hit, so the whole team are really going to savor this moment.”
