    Rocker Jon Stevens, took to the stage to headline the Big Red Bash finale in Birdsville, along with other famous Aussie performers.

    The Noiseworks and INXS Collection show was a three-night outback extravaganza and to cap it off, Stevens performed iconic hits like Take Me Back, No Lies and INXS classics such as “Need You Tonight” and Never Tear Us Apart.

    Australian rock icon, Ian Moss, also performed a curated set of solo hits, covers, and Cold Chisel anthems with Bow River, Telephone Booth and Tuckers Daughter.

    Big Red Bashers also saw fantastic performances from Vanessa Amorosi who hit the outback stage for the first time as well as Bash favourites Sarah McLeod and Chocolate Starfish as well as Ash Grunwald, Hayley Mary, Fanny Lumsden and Tina Turner Tribute.

    Stevens, Sarah McLeod, Adam Thompson and Hayley Mary came together for a rocking finale, raising the roof with Good Times by INXS and Jimmy Barnes.

    “It’s always a mix of extreme happiness and relief that we’ve delivered another successful event when we hit the end of day three. And sadness that it’s coming to an end,” said Festival founder and managing director of the Outback Music Festival Group, Greg Donovan.

    “We run on adrenaline and the energy of our performers and our amazing crowd during the event, and then before we know it an event that is twelve months in the making is over.

    “This year had so many highlights, we’ll cherish the many new memories made along with all our festival goers. And within a few days of our final bump out you won’t even know we created a mini city in this pristine outback setting.”
