Dog-Friendly Big Red Bash Music Festival 2022.
Take your pup to NSW’s BIGGEST OUTBACK MUSIC FESTIVAL!
Dogs will be welcomed in their hundreds at the inaugural Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash. The event starts on April 21 to 23, 2022, and offers a music festival like no other, under wide-open skies and on the red earth of the Mundi Mundi Plains outside of Silverton in Outback NSW.
So dust off your swag, tent or van – and hit the road this April to the Mundi Mundi Broken Hill music festival, where pet friends are as welcome. Around 400 dogs attend the Birdsville Big Red Bash each year, and similar numbers are expected at the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash.
The events will also boast the fun of a Doggie dress-up fashion competition. Dogs and owners have the opportunity to receive prizes for the best costume, best trick, coolest mutt, and best doggie/owner costume combo.
The Outback event will be staged across three huge days in April featuring an epic line-up of iconic Aussie acts including Paul Kelly, Ian Moss, John Williamson, Kate Ceberano, Russell Morris, 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 Caitlyn Shadbolt.
Greg Donovan, MD of the Outback Music Festival Group says, “We’re dog lovers and many of our festival-goers have dogs and love hitting the road with their fur-kids. We’ll have a special dog-friendly section at the festival, as well as an allocated dog zone in the concert arena.”
Supported by Destination NSW, the event is expected to generate funds for Outback NSW.
What to expect?
The event will be held on the historic Mundi Mundi Plains in the Silverton region – a location that is as vast as it is beautiful, allowing for well-above social distancing and featuring Australia’s biggest, entirely outdoor, concert space.
10,000 festival-goers, many with their dogs, will converge on the ‘Bashville’ Mundi Mundi Bash campsite site for a great line-up of live Australian rock music, as well as a host of outback entertainment and activities.
While the Mundi Mundi Bash location is remote it is easily accessible, with a sealed road leading right up to the event site meaning festival-goers don’t have to have a 4WD to make the trip to the event.
All festival-goers 16 and over must be fully vaccinated to attend.
Both the Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash events will be BYO alcohol for both the campsite and concert areas 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 events.
