COVID Safe Success: Big Red Bash 2021

In July 2021 our event crew, alongside Queensland Health, Pathology Queensland, the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) and Queensland Police, delivered the first COVID Safe, large-scale, multi-day music festival since the start of the pandemic. The Birdsville Big Red Bash brought together 9,427 Bashers from across Australia to dance, sand-surf and celebrate Aussie music and culture, and we can't wait to bring the Bash to the beautiful Mundi Mundi Plains later this year. 

With the support of the Queensland Government and Tourism and Events Queensland, we were able to implement a first class COVID Safe Event Plan - and a first class Big Red Bash, just a year after sadly cancelling the event due to COVID-19.

We'd like to thank everyone involved - and a big thanks to all our patrons for your support, and for coming on the COVID Safe journey with us!
