Paul Kelly To Headline Birdsville Big Red Bash

Paul Kelly will head to Birdsville in 2020 to headline the Birdsville Big Red Bash in July.

The all-Australian line-up will also include Tim Finn, John Williamson, Ian Moss, Kate Ceberano, Shannon Noll, Dragon, The Radiators, Mi Sex, Wendy Matthews, Thirsty Merc, Marc Gable, Bjorn Again, Steve Balbi, Chocolate Starfish, Ross Wilson and Vika and Linda Bull.

The event is a major score for Central Queensland. “We support Outback events because they attract visitors to the region and create jobs in the tourism sector,” Kate Jones, Queensland’s Tourism Industry Development Minister said.

“The Birdsville Big Red Bash is a one-of-a-kind music festival held in an iconic Outback Queensland location. What started as a small impromptu concert with 500 people has grown to a truly epic event that attracts 9,000 people to the Simpson Desert. An event that we hope continues to grow.”

Kate Ceberano is looking forward to performing at her second Big Red Bash. “The Big Red Bash event is out of control! The location is so unique – it’s just like a lunar scape, with the earth and the sky divided in equal measure. It’s set up cradled in the arms of this amazing 40 metre red sand dune, where the kids can go crazy.”

“I’m not kidding when I say that it’s one of the greatest events I’ve ever personally been part of. And some of the greatest artists from around the country will gather to perform there again next year. Everything that ailed me in Melbourne was suddenly cured when I got out to the Simpson Desert last time, and I can’t wait to get back out there for Big Red Bash 2020,” added Kate.

The Big Red Bash is on 7-9 July 2020 at the Big Red sand dune 35kms west of Birdsville.
