The world’s most remote music festival – this is how the Birdsville Big Red Bash from July 5-7 in outback Queensland is being called – is calling for volunteers.

“That means we’re looking for additional manpower to help lighten the load.”

Donovan offers the perfect carrot for a live music fan.

“In addition to going behind the scenes at one of the world’s most unique music festivals and seeing local legends like Barnsey and Missy Higgins, volunteers will be able to give back to regional communities at the same time.”

The Bill also features Kasey Chambers, Jon Stevens, Kate Ceberano, Richard Clapton, The Rolling Stones Review Starring: Adalita, Tex Perkins & Tim Rogers, Bjorn Again, Sarah McLeod, Mark Gable, Ash Grunwald, Jack Jones, Dragon, Mick Thomas (Wedding Parties Anything), Mi-Sex, Chocolate Starfish, Steve Balbi, The Lachy Doley Group, Bachelor Girl and Mel Dyer.
