BASSINTHEGRASS 2021 draws record-breaking crowd

BASSINTHEGRASS 2021 been hailed one of the best, with 14,000 music fans from across Australia soaking up the sun, sand and good vibes in Darwin on 21 May.

With some of the nation’s biggest names on the line-up, it’s no surprise that the 2021 event at Darwin’s iconic Mindil Beach was a complete sell out.

Early Bird tickets for the 2022 festival scheduled for 21 May went on sale at this year’s BASSINTHEGRASS, and also sold out in record time.

Tim Watsford, CEO of event organiser Northern Territory Major Events, said the 2021 festival was the most memorable BASSINTHEGRASS ever.

“Seeing 14,000 people enjoying themselves in a festival atmosphere at Mindil Beach, an iconic Northern Territory location, was simply incredible after the year we’ve all been through,” he said.

The Territory has led the way in the events space over the last 12 months, and our whole events industry is gearing up for more of the same over the next year. It’s incredible to see, and people from all over the country are travelling here to experience what we have to offer.

BASSINTHEGRASS 2021 is one of the first major music festivals to take place in Australia, if not the world, since social gathering restrictions began to ease. As well as Peking Duk and Violent Soho, the line-up included Boo Seeka, ChillinIT, DMA’s, G Flip, Hayden James, Illy, Jack River, The Jungle Giants, Lime Cordiale, Missy Higgins, Ocean Alley, The Rubens, Safia and Thelma Plum.

“This year’s event sold out months in advance, which is no surprise when you look at what a first-class line-up of Aussie acts we had,” Tim said.

“If you want to be part of it next year, jump online and grab yourself a ticket now. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.”
