The Bash takes place on the edge of the Simpson Desert (Munga-Thirri National Park) about 35 kms west of Birdsville. Situated close to the towering 30+ metre high Big Red Dune, it offers music lovers a spectacular backdrop to enjoy some of Australia’s best loved musicians while visually feasting on breathtaking views of the vast desert expanse and remote starry night skies.

So much more than just a music festival, the Big Red Bash allows thousands of festival goers the rare chance to experience the real outback. And, of course, the bucket-list chance for a beer and a chat with friendly locals in the iconic Birdsville pub.
