NT Government

Christmas has come early for NT music fans with the 2021 BASSINTHEGRASS line-up released this morning.

With just five months to go until the Territory’s biggest music festival at iconic Mindil Beach on 15 May 2021, the epic line-up has been confirmed as (in alphabetical order):

  • Boo Seeka
  • ChillinIT
  • DMA’S
  • G Flip
  • Hayden James
  • ILLY
  • Jack River
  • The Jungle Giants
  • Lime Cordiale
  • Missy Higgins
  • Ocean Alley

Territory artists will also take to the stage, offering an incredible opportunity for local musos.

The 2021 event follows the 2019 music extravaganza, which attracted a record crowd in a new location on the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets site. 2021 will kick off where 2019 left, after the 2020 event was postponed due to the Coronavirus.

Those who purchased their tickets for 2020 have automatically secured their spot at next year’s event.

The perfect Christmas present, tickets are now available for 2021 at www.bassinthegrass.com.au.

Limited general admission tickets are available for $105 until 1 February (unless sold out prior), when final release tickets will go on sale for $120. Remember – this event usually sells out.

As stated by Minister for Major Events, Natasha Fyles:

“Music fans will be thrilled by this line-up. Having had to postpone the 2020 event, Territorians and interstate visitors alike will be flocking to Mindil Beach for a day of first-class entertainment at BASSINTHEGRASS 2021.

“The event will be even more special after we missed out in 2020. Fans across the country have never been more excited about seeing live music, and artists who were unable to perform for months on end are super keen to get on stage.

“We made the tough decision not to proceed with the event due to COVID-19 this year, to keep Territorians safe. But we are look forward to welcoming music fans from around Australia to come and enjoy a fantastic Territory holiday, and experience what has become a rite of passage for Territorians.”

As stated by Cesira Aitken of The Jungle Giants:

“It’s been such a long time between shows and this will be our first time in the Northern Territory. It’ll be a special time after such a weird year, we can’t wait!”

As stated by Michael May of Boo Seeka:

“BASSINTHEGRASS is easily one of our favourite festivals. Darwin is such an awesome place and we’re both really looking forward to playing for fans at Mindil Beach next year in May.”
