Hitch up your caravan or chuck your swag in the tray because Midnight Oil has just joined the stacked Aussie line-up for the August Broken Hill Mundi Mundi Bash. This uniquely Australian event for caravan and camping enthusiasts and music lovers of all ages features a stellar line-up that includes Jimmy Barnes, Missy Higgins, Jon Stevens, Kasey Chambers, Daryl Braithwaite and more.

Held over three days from 18 to 20 August 2022, Midnight Oil will take to the stage for outback New South Wales’ biggest ever live music event. Being their final tour, this will be the only chance to see the band back home on the red dirt of the Mundi Mundi Plains where they filmed their iconic ‘Beds are Burning’ clip. A legacy that spans five decades, 20 million album sales, 13 albums and 47 singles, it’s set to be an epic event.

“Very much looking forward to revisiting the Mundi Mundi plains, where the ‘Beds are Burning’ clip was shot, for this 12 volt Woodstock on the edge of Mad Max’s wasteland, and playing for a special gathering of pilgrims listening to new music, and the soundtracks of their youth under an endless Australian night sky.”

Midnight Oil guitarist/keyboardist Jim Moginie

Collectively, the lineup for the August 2022 Mundi Mundi Bash of over 20 Australian artists has won over 50 ARIA awards, 26 APRA Awards and 15 CMAA Golden Guitar Awards. Not to mention the countless hit singles and over 160 albums.
