Wide Open Space, a very special music festival held in Australia’s Northern Territory, is back after two years off the air. Tickets are available now with a lineup coming soon.
There’s no music festival quite like Wide Open Space. Held on Ross River Resort, a secluded location 70km outside of Alice Springs in central Australia, it’s the kind of getaway you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
The last Wide Open Space festival took place in 2018 and featured acts such as Regurgitator, Haiku Hands, Monkey Marc, imbi, and many more. It’s an event that holds Indigenous and Northern Territory-based acts close to their heart, and never fails to host a spectacularly diverse range of talent, from local hitmakers to cabaret singers or experimental performance artists.
In 2019 the festival took a strategic break, priming themselves to return bigger and ever in 2020. Unfortunately the pandemic grounded those plans, however that energy has been poured into making 2021 the best edition of WOS there ever has been.
Scott Large, director of Wide Open Space, shared:
“The WOS team are so excited to bring back this enigmatic festival after a rest year in 2019 and then a postponed 2020. 10 years of love, sweat and beers have gone into building the event to the point where people come from all over Australia and the world, to celebrate with us in the heartland of the country.”
“We love showing NT talent to the world and mixing some of the most interesting acts from all over Australia, alongside a dazzling program of arts and a strong local cultural representation. Central Australia is a real crossroads of people and cultures and we invite everyone to come and get connected at this year’s.”
With a lineup to be revealed soon, tickets are on sale now. More limited spots will be on sale than usual due to COVID regulations, so if you want to make it to this fun, family-friendly festival, be sure to get in fast.
Wide Open Space takes place from Friday 30 April to Sunday 2nd May 2021 at Ross River Resort, NT. Grab your tickets here.
