MusicNT presents Bush Bands Bash

A large scale, open-air public concert now in it’s 16th year.

Showcasing eight Indigenous bands and three solo female artists before estimated live audiences of over 3000 and many many more through live radio broadcast and now live video feed.

Celebrated in the spring time in Alice Springs, Bush Bands Bash has grown into a huge foot-tapping night under the stars at the historic Alice Springs Telegraph Station.

With many of the bands singing in traditional cultures, this is the biggest night of Aboriginal music in Central Australia.

The successful applicants will participate in MusicNT's intensive skills development camp, Bush Bands Business, and will then perform at the Bush Bands Bash alongside a headline and emerging act from Country Arts WA's 'Sand Tracks' Tour.

A drug and alcohol free, family-friendly event.
