Early Entry Camping - Additional Nights at Bashville

2 day early entry tickets are now sold out. You may be able to secure 2 day early entry through the resale facility. The limited number of remaining 1 day early entry tickets will go back on sale at 9am AEDT Friday 14th February HERE until sold out.

Early Entry Camping passes can be purchased in addition to your regular ticket, providing extra nights camping before the event.

The advantages of arriving to the venue early include:

1. Larger availability of campsites. The campsite is filled from front (closest to stage) to back, so you’ll get a campsite that is closer to the stage & plaza area.
2. More time to relax and enjoy the setting and atmosphere out at Big Red.
3. Opportunity to enjoy some of the activities that will be on offer at Big Red in the lead up to the Bash.

You’ll need to purchase one early entry camping pass per vehicle, on top of your regular ticket.

There’s a limited availability of early entry camping passes.


  • 2 additional nights – Big Red Camp site entry from 8am on Sunday 5th July - per vehicle ticket price $110 (includes booking fee & 2.5% processing fee)
  • 1 additional night – Big Red Camp site Entry from 8am on Monday 6th July per vehicle ticket price $90 (includes booking fee & 2.5% processing fee)

Your early entry pass can be purchased at the same time as you purchase your tickets, or at a later date once you finalise your itinerary and travel plans until SOLD OUT.

You will receive a special windscreen sticker for your vehicle enabling you to arrive to camp early on the above days.
