Heading Out To Mundi Mundi
The Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash will be held on the 21–23 April 2022. The inaugural three-day music festival has been postponed twice due to COVID-19 and will be the biggest ever event staged in Outback New South Wales.
Greg Donovan, Festival Owner and Managing Director of the Outback Music Festival Group, has thanked ticket owners for holding tight to their tickets, despite the postponements.
“As well as guaranteeing your spot, your solidarity shows all our artists, contractors, crew and vendors that you’re 100 per cent behind the recovery of the Aussie music industry as soon as COVID allows,” he said.
The line-up includes top Australian acts such as Paul Kelly, Ian Moss, Shannon Noll, Wendy Matthews, Kate Ceberano, Dragon, John Williamson, Vika and Linda, and Ross Wilson. As a testament to the success of the line-up, collectively the acts have won over 25 Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) awards and are responsible for the release of over 100 albums.
The festival will be held 35km outside Broken Hill on the Mundi Mundi Plains and is accessible to 2WDs, caravans and motorhomes. Organisers advise attendees to bring drinking water (a recommended 3L per person per day), plenty of food and snacks (although there will be a range of food vendors at the event) and camping equipment. Of course, the outback sun will be out in force so make sure you bring sun protection and wear loose comfortable clothing.
The Birdsville Big Red Bash was Australia’s first dog-friendly music festival. “Ensuring dogs are well catered for at our new Mundi Mundi Bash sister event was a no-brainer. We’re dog lovers and many of our festival goers have dogs and love hitting the road with their fur kids. We’re a family-friendly event and to us, dogs are important family members,” said Greg.
If you’re planning to attend the Mundi Mundi Bash, it’s a great opportunity to take the camper or caravan, the kids and even the dog to explore Broken Hill and its beautiful surrounds.
Hema Maps will also have a big presence at the show with a large stand and a full range of stock on display. Hema's General Manager Matt O'Meara offered the following thoughts.
"We've really loved being involved with the Big Red Bash for a number of years and are excited about extending this to the Mundi Mundi Festival. We've got staff members driving in from Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne and really looking forward to having a great event and chatting with lots of our customers in such a beautiful setting”.
