The Northern Territory’s largest music festival, BASSINTHEGRASS, has wrapped up for another year with almost 14,000 people packing out Darwin’s iconic Mindil Beach and enjoying music from some of Australia’s biggest music stars.
It comes days after BASSINTHEGRASS 2022 received two awards in the global Eventex Awards, one in the Best Australian/Oceanian Event category and one in the Best Festival category.
This year, crowds lapped up music from the likes of Peach PRC, San Cisco, Babe Rainbow and the Northern Territory’s own Baker Boy who, unsurprisingly, drew an extra-large crowd before the sun sank into the Arafura Sea. Then it was the turn of more top acts, including Spacey Jane, Angus & Julia Stone and The Presets, who wowed the crowd well into the night.
Festivalgoers were privileged to experience a special Welcome to Country and Saltwater Ceremony on the beach, delivered by Larrakia Elder Dr Richie Fejo, who welcomed everyone to Larrakia country.
BASSINTHEGRASS is delivered by Northern Territory Major Events Company (NTMEC).
