The world’s most remote music festival is set to return with its biggest ever lineup of iconic Aussie rock acts between 6-8 July 2021 , when Paul Kelly and a slew of Oz music legends hit Outback Queensland’s Simpson Desert for the 2020 Big Red Bash.

Headliner Paul Kelly will be joined by a festival-record 19 Australian music greats, including 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.

Collectively, the bumper artist lineup has won more than 25 ARIA awards and 27 CMAA awards, as well as releasing over 100 albums and countless hit singles.

Whether it’s Paul Kelly singing ’To Her Door’,’ Nollsy belting ‘What About Me’, John Williamson crooning ‘True Blue’ or Wendy Matthews breaking our hearts all over again with ‘The Day You Went Away’, festivalgoers can expect a classic playlist of Oz anthems performed live in one of the world’s most unique and quintessentially Australian landscapes.

For Aussie music lovers and intrepid travellers alike, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Crowd favourites Bjorn Again – who took to the stage on camel-back in 2019 – will also return by popular demand for the sixth edition of the all-ages festival, along with Steve Balbi, Chocolate Starfish, Ross Wilson and Vika and Linda Bull.
