The world’s most remote music festival will not go ahead this year, with organisers of The Birdsville Big Red Bash confirming the 2020 event has been cancelled.
“It is with heavy hearts that we are announcing today that the 2020 Big Red Bash has been cancelled,” event founder and organiser Greg Donovan says.
“The heartbreak of being unable to proceed with an event that sold out within a month of tickets going on-sale last September, and that we know will impact artists who have had all their gigs cancelled, and also brings much needed income to Outback Queensland communities, is real. But the best thing we can all do at the moment is stay home and stay safe.”
The 2021 event will go ahead 6-8 July with the entire 2020 line-up confirmed to perform. “All of our wonderful Australian artists remain committed to being part of the Big Red Bash next year for which we sincerely thank them.
“We look forward to bringing people together from every corner of this great land, gathering under the desert skies to celebrate Australian music and mateship in July 2021.”
Ticket holders have been given the option of holding onto their ticket, which automatically becomes valid for the 2021 Big Red Bash. Those seeking a refund will have that option for the next six months, with the deadline to claim a refund being 30 September.
2021 Birdsville Big Red Bash takes place 6-8 July.
