Bush Bands Bash is biggest annual celebration of contemporary Indigenous music in Alice Springs and a fantastic night out for dancing under the desert sky.
The Bush Bands Program brings together two of Central Australia’s premier music industry events. The Bush Bands Bash and Bush Bands Business provide more than 80 specifically selected Indigenous musicians from remote communities across Central Australia an opportunity to hone their music and performance skills, gain industry knowledge and put it all to practise at an impressive concert in front of thousands.
The program runs annually in September and has resulted in a number of great outcomes for Indigenous music including identifying and supporting young Indigenous band managers and creating opportunities for Bush Bands to tour nationally.
Bush Bands Bash is presented by MusicNT, the peak body for contemporary music in the Northern Territory.
