Minister’s Message

"Welcome to the 2017 People’s Choice BASSINTHEGRASS music festival.

BASSINTHEGRASS is a highlight of the dry season calendar, a celebration of Australian live music and provides festival goers the perfect opportunity to visit Darwin!

The Territory Labor Government is proud to sponsor such a wonderful event and I encourage everyone to come along and enjoy the atmosphere.

Whether you are a local Darwin resident or a visitor to the Top End, I hope you enjoy the 12 hour, all ages music festival in the picturesque Botanic Gardens Amphitheatre".
