Our intrepid photographer Jason Rosewarne arrived safely in the middle of nowhere for the 2022 Mundi Mundi Bash Broken Hill yesterday.

The concert area gates opened on time at 3:30pm where organisers welcomed attendees with a ‘Kick-Off Party’ for early arrivals. The movie Paper Planes played on the two big screens either side of the stage, testing out the fabulous PA system. Local group, Tha Boiz from Broken Hill were the first live act playing a range of standard rock covers. At 7pm Bjorn Again hit the stage and got the crowd singing and dancing to all of the Abba hits and a few rock covers thrown in for good measure.

The crowds are continuing to roll in today where they are expecting 8000 people to be here by start of play today for the first main day of the event.

The three-day all-ages, dog-friendly camping festival begins today with headline performances from Aussie music legends Midnight Oil and Missy Higgins.

Midnight Oil’s performance will mark a homecoming of sorts for the band, with the festival being staged on the same plains where the Oils filmed their iconic Beds Are Burning videoclip – as well as being a key filming location for many scenes from the Mad Max movie franchise– including the latest Furiosa instalment featuring Chris Hemsworth.

Other performers on the opening day festival bill include Kyle Lionheart, Ash Grunwald, The Wolfe Brothers, Busby Marou, and Richard Clapton.

Off stage, punters will partake in a range of wild and wacky outback activities – from sand volleyball, sunrise yoga and dunny door painting, through to scenic helicopter rides, camel rides and a Mundi’s Got Talent amateur singing contest.

The festival is the brainchild of Greg Donovan, a trailblazing music entrepreneur who founded the Outback Music Festival Group, which produces the Broken Hill Mundi Bash and hugely successful Birdsville Big Red Bash (the most remote music festival in the world).

The festival is expected to deliver a welcome economic boost to Broken Hill and surrounding regions. The Broken Hill City Council reported that the inaugural Mundi Mundi Bash brought $3.5 million into Broken Hill in April 2022 alone, putting the festival well on track to exceed its forecasted visitor expenditure targets of $5.4 million over three years.

Later this week, the festival will stage several world record attempts for The World’s Largest Nutbush dance and the World’s Largest Mad Max dress-up.

Other big names in Aussie music will take the stage over the coming days including Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers, Jon Stevens, Daryl Braithwaite and many more.
