Ticket Info

Ticket prices for 2017 are outlined below. Tickets include 3 nights and 2 days of entertainment, plus 3 nights on site camping at Big Red.

In 2017 we will have 2 classes of tickets available - standard and premium.

Premium tickets will have the following benefits over and above standard tickets:

  • Guaranteed refund if the event is cancelled due to weather outside of the organisers control.

  • An event souvenir program valued at $15

  • Membership to the Outback Mates Club valued at $20 which gives you a range of discounts and special offers as you travel around outback Queensland. For details go to

  • Premium ticket holders will also go into a draw to win one of six backstage experiences (family tickets allow the whole family to be part of this experience)

We have introduced this premium ticket option primarily to reflect the significant costs involved to insure the event against the risk of cancellation due to weather during the event and in the lead up to the event. This is a significant risk for the organisers so we have insured against this in 2017 for the benefit of premium ticket holders, to allow us to provide a full refund in the event of cancellation outside the organisers control.

Standard ticket holders will not be offered any refund if the event is cancelled due to weather during or in the lead up to the event, and therefore we have not reflected the cost of insuring this risk in standard ticket prices. Standard ticket holders will also be given the opportunity to upgrade to premium tickets if they wish to do so before the event. Further details will be provided once ticket sales open.

Please ensure you read the ticketing terms and conditions carefully when they become available to ensure you fully understand the differences between the 2 classes of tickets, and of course also understand all other ticketing terms and conditions.

Also please note that unlike many other music festivals and events, the Birdsville Big Red Bash is BYO, so you won't get stung with hefty drink prices!
