Big Red Bash Lineup announced

An all star line-up of Aussie talent will take to the stage for the sixth annual Birdsville Big Red Bash.

Paul Kelly, Kate Ceberano, Ian Moss, John Williamson, Wendy Matthews and Dragon are just some of the acts announced for the rock festival that claims to be the most remote music festival in the world, taking place in the Simpson Desert from July 7 to 9 next year.

 

Collectively, artists on the bill have won more than 25 ARIA Awards, 27 CMAA Awards and released in excess of 100 albums.

"We have a total of 20 acts - more than we've ever had, which allows us to extend the hours of performance and offer even more entertainment for festivalgoers," organiser Greg Donovan said. "In 2013, our festival was born from John performing solo with just a speaker and a mic on top of Big Red. Now, six years on, we're ready to welcome him back as part of our biggest ever line-up. We've come a long way, but we certainly wouldn't be here now if wasn't for John."

Also playing the festival are Shannon Noll, Mi Sex, Thirsty Merc, Mark Gable, Glenn Shorrock and Tim Finn with tickets going on sale September 19 via bigredbash.com.au.
