After a sell-out event in 2022 that attracted almost 16,000 people from across Australia, BASSINTHEGRASS has become a must-do on the national music festival calendar. Aussie music phenomenon Tones and I said she loves the Top End.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back to Darwin after playing New Year’s Eve 2020. It was a great memory and I loved the city,” she said.

Guy Sebastian said he can’t wait to head north to take part.

“I am so stoked to be heading up to Darwin to play live with my band at BASSINTHEGRASS. I love heading to the NT – the vibe up there is always electric, and the energy I get from everyone up north always leaves me and the band buzzing with how much they love music and life. See you next year, legends!” he said. 

Delivered by Northern Territory Major Events Company (NTMEC) on behalf of the Northern Territory Government, BASSINTHEGRASS continues to evolve each year.
