Mundi Mundi Bash from the helicopter

It was the final day of the Mundi Mundi Bash today, capping off a memorable four days at one of the best organised events we’ve ever attended. This weird and wonderful festival not only provided so many great musical moments but a lot of additional fun activities too.

Today we had an attempt on the world Nutbush City Limits dance record with more than 3,700 people struttin’ across the Mundi Mundi Plains. Sadly it didn’t beat the Birdsville Big Red Bash’s impressive 4,084 but great fun was had by all, with many dressed in colourful costumes inspired by the Mad Max movie franchise and most importantly, more than $55,000 was raised through registrations for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. With today’s Nutbush effort, the festival pushed its collective RFDS fundraising total to more than $500,000 since 2016.

Festival owner and Managing Director of the Outback Music Festival Group, Greg Donovan, said; “Thank you to everyone who participated today. It was an awesome effort and really came down to the wire. We were so close and hopeful of nabbing the world record for NSW – but the Birdsville Big Red Bash has managed to keep the title by a small margin.

“It’s going to be fun watching the states battle it out at the Bash festivals over the coming years. Either way, it’s a win-win to continue raising such important funds for our charity partner, the Royal Flying Doctor Service.”

The festival concluded today with performances from Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers and a slew of other beloved Australian music acts including Daryl Braithwaite, Russell Morris, Pierce Brothers, Bachelor Girl and the Buckleys.

In one of the festival highlights for myself and fellow photographer David Harris, the brilliant team at Mundi Mundi Bash organised a helicopter ride for us, so that we could capture the beauty of this event from above. Thanks to Kylie and Rob from the PR team and main man Greg Donovan for being so welcoming and making this event so enjoyable.

 The August Mundi Mundi Bash 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.
