Tickets on sale for the inaugural Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash Outback Music Festival
Tickets to the inaugural Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash – the biggest event ever staged in Outback NSW are on sale!
Staged from 19 – 21 August, 2021 tickets for the new Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash outback music festival can be purchased at www.mundimundibash.com.au
The Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash will bring a stellar line-up of Australian rock legends including Paul Kelly, Ian Moss, John Williamson, Tim Finn, Kate Ceberano, Glenn Shorrock, Ross Wilson, Vika & Linda, Wendy Matthews, Shane Howard, Shannon Noll, Dragon, The Radiators, Chocolate Starfish, Mi-Sex, The Chantoozies, Bjorn Again, Mark Gable, Steve Balbi and Furnace and the Fundamentals to the historic region.
The new three-day festival has a capacity of just 10,000 and will be staged on the iconic Mundi Mundi Plains outside of Silverton in NSW, on the red earth of private farm-land. The Barrier Ranges will provide a spectacular backdrop to the event stage that will be built from the ground up on a landscape that is as vast as it is beautiful.
Event founder and organiser Greg Donovan, MD of the Outback Music Festival Group said: “It’s nerve racking going into a new event, but with the amazing line-up of Oz rock legends we have, and such an iconic, bucket list destination as our venue, we hope our gut instinct is right and that tickets sell fast.”
“It feels fantastic to be moving forward and announcing a new music festival, and we’re grateful to the NSW Government for the support in helping us bring this event to life. Our Birdsville Big Red Bash sister event is already sold out and has a waiting list for tickets so we’re hopeful that demand will spill over to this new NSW event. If the huge engagement we’ve had on Mundi Mundi Bash socials since announcing the event two weeks ago is anything to go by we’re onto a good thing.”
On Thursday March 11 NSW Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres was joined by Director and founder of the Outback Music Festival Group Greg Donovan and Australian artist Kate Ceberano on the Mundi Mundi Plains to officially announce the new event.
Minister Ayres said that the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash had been secured for the region from 2021 until 2023 by the Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
“We anticipate that this event will inject more than $5.4 million into the local community when it’s held across the next three years, which is a huge coup for local businesses in and around Broken Hill.
“The Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash will be an event not to miss in 2021, and I encourage music-lovers and those looking for an unforgettable outback adventure, to grab their tickets today so they don’t miss out on this new NSW event,” he said.
The event is an all-ages and dog-friendly festival offering up a uniquely Australian destination adventure for families, grey nomads, camping and caravanning enthusiasts and intrepid travellers. A total of 20 acts will be on-stage at the inaugural Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash.
In addition to the music line-up, the event will also feature a jam-packed program of outback activities – from a Nutbush City Limits World Record dance off attempt (the current record of 2,330 boot-scooting revelers is held by the Big Red Bash) to comedy and outdoor film screenings, scenic helicopter flights, camel rides and the charity initiatives such as the ‘Mundi Mundi Undie Run’ fundraising for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. The rich history, museums and art of Broken Hill and Silverton, the stark natural beauty of the region and a glittering night-sky renowned for star gazing round out the offerings of the new bucket list event.
The historic Mundi Mundi Silverton region is famously where the post-apocalyptic world in the opening scenes of Mad Max 2 was filmed, along with key scenes for Priscilla Queen of the Desert, and where comedian Jimeoin’s film The Craic was set.
While the Mundi Mundi Plains location is rugged and remote, it is also easily accessed by road vehicles with sealed road leading right up to the event site – ensuring those looking for a unique outback camping or caravanning experience can attend without needing off-road 4WD vans, campers and cars. Scheduled and charter flights, bus tours and train transport are also available to Broken Hill for the event.
The Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash will be BYO alcohol for both the campsite and concert area, and ticket holders are also permitted to bring their own food. There will also be a large range of food vendors selling both hot and cold food and non-alcoholic beverages at the event.
The Outback Music Festival Group are working with NSW Health on delivering a COVID-safe event, and will continue to monitor COVID developments on an ongoing basis. The huge 2 million square metre festival site ensures that social distancing will be easy to accommodate with just 10,000 patrons in an outdoor arena that is bigger than any sporting venue in Australia.
