The live stream of the Bush Bands Bash celebrates the 10th year of the event and the pivotal role Bush Bands plays in the showcasing and development of contemporary Indigenous music. In addition, this year’s event has grown to include a special performance from the Desert Divas – a group of Indigenous female singer songwriters from Central Australia – extending the development opportunities the event provides for Indigenous music.The live stream will be provided by TILT Vision, a Sydney-based production collective that was responsible for the popular broadcast of the Barkly Region’s Desert Harmony Festival.
MusicNT Manager Mark Smith said, “MusicNT is proud to once again be hosting the Bush Bands Bash, bringing a night of amazing music to Alice Springs. This is a great opportunity to celebrate 10 years of the Bash and this year, open up this incredible concert to the world. Beamed from the centre of the country to your computer the Bush Bands Bash will be a night of epic music showcasing the talent emerging proud and strong from this region”.
