The success of the Birdsville Big Red Bash outback music festival has led to a sister event being introduced – the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash.
As the name indicates, this second festival is being held on the Mundi Mundi Plains. Located 35kms north of Broken Hill in NSW, with the Barrier Ranges as a backdrop, the Mundi Mundi Plains are just outside the historic town of Silverton.
Held on private farmland, the three-day festival will feature a lineup of Aussie rock and pop legends, 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, Steve Balbi and Furnace and the Fundamentals.
“It feels fantastic to be moving forward and announcing a new music festival, and we’re grateful to the NSW Government for the support in helping us bring this event to life,” said event founder and organiser, Greg Donovan. “Our Birdsville Big Red Bash sister event is already sold out and has a waiting list for tickets so we’re hopeful that demand will spill over to this new NSW event. If the huge engagement we’ve had on Mundi Mundi Bash socials since announcing the event is anything to go by, we’re onto a good thing.”
To be held this 19-21 August, the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash will be a family-friendly festival, with abundant camping space on site. Tickets limited to just 10,000, ensuring the event can run along similar COVID-safe guidelines to this July’s Big Red Bash. The festival site can be reached via sealed roads, so is accessible for motorhomes and 2WD vehicles with caravans.
“It’s nerve racking going into a new event, but with the amazing line-up of Oz rock legends we have, and such an iconic, bucket list destination as our venue, we hope our gut instinct is right and that tickets sell fast,” Donovan added.
Tickets went on sale 23 March, with more than 60 per cent sold at time of writing. Adults tickets start at $595 and include 4 days’ camping on site. Tickets are $92 each for children 12-17yo and FREE for children 11yo and under. Family tickets and early entry passes are available and you can also bring your dog.
