The People’s Choice BASSINTHEGRASS Lineup Reads Like A Who’s Who Of Music Royalty

The gods of music have come thru with the music festival of your ~dreams~, showcasing some A++ local talent along with epic international acts.

Set in the glorious Northern Territory, People’s Choice BASSINTHEGRASS returns in 2020, at Darwin’s iconic Mindil Beach on Saturday, 23 May.

The jam-packed setlist features your girl Thelma Plum, multi award-winner Missy Higgins, electronic legends Peking Duk, their collaborator on the song ‘Take Me Over’, indie band Safia, and hip-hop artist ILLY.

Safia lead singer Ben Woolner, who returns to the fest for a second year, said: “It’s always a treat to be a part of People’s Choice BASSINTHEGRASS. There’s a genuine appreciation for the music shown by both the audience and organisers.”

“To have the opportunity to play an event of this calibre in a beautiful city like Darwin is a no brainer for us.”
