Report and photos by Jason Rosewarne

Mundi Mundi Bash attendees awoke to a crisp but clear blue sunny sky on Friday, the second official day of this fantastic outback festival. Those who were keen and in condition to stretch, started the day at their usual 8am yoga ritual out at the Sunset sign.

At 10am we had the Mundi Undi Run, a 1.5km run in your favourite undies / costume. Hundreds took part, followed by the awards presentation, best dressed, first over the line etc.

However the extracurricular activities didn’t end there, as next up we had the Doggie Fashions On The Plains, where Bulldog ‘Walter’ took out the best dressed award, judged by special guest Melanie Dyer.

The concert area gates opened and punters rolled in from midday to set up their places for the day. The music kicked off in an energetic fashion with Melanie Dyer, who is almost ready to release her debut album, Between You & Me, written mainly in Nashville over the last couple of years. We got a great taste of some of her sweet country pop and heartfelt ballads.

Mick Thomas is always great value and didn’t disappoint with a great performance of his acclaimed Australiana-style roots rock, ably assisted by Brooke Taylor on her Maton acoustic.

A very energetic Grace Knight, fronting the Eurogliders pleased the audience no end with a string of 80’s hits.

With or without The Superjesus, Sarah McLeod is such an accomplished performer and never gives less than one hundred percent. Today playing with the incredible house band, she rocked the crowd’s dusty socks off.

The Black Sorrows are an Australian institution and today played a sensational best-of set. Joe Camilleri and guitarist Claude Carranza out front set a fun tone for the night, typifying the amazing spirit of this event.

The rock’n rhythms kept coming with The Rolling Stones Revue, featuring Tim Rogers, Tex Perkins & Adalita and the event’s awesome house band.

Tonight’s headliner was Jon Stevens playing songs from his entire catalogue, including Noiseworks, INXS material and some other fab covers.

We finished up around 9:30pm, although  DJ MasterBaites stuck around to spin some tracks for those who hadn’t quite had enough.
