Quotes from Minister for Tourism, Sport and Culture, Lauren Moss:
“We know events such as People’s Choice BASSINTHEGRASS play a vital role in enhancing the liveability and vibrancy of our city, which is so important in keeping people in the Territory.
“The Territory Labor Government is investing in the growth of the music festival as part of the record $103 million Turbocharging Tourism stimulus to attract visitors, create jobs and put more money in the pockets of Territorians.
“With its new seaside location and an excellent line up of Australian music artists including ARIA award-winning singer-songwriter AMY SHARK and BROODS, I urge people of all ages to secure their tickets to what is anticipated to be the biggest and the best People’s Choice BASSINTHEGRASS music festival yet.
“We are thrilled to deliver another spectacular line up, which not only allows Territorians to see leading Australian music artists in their own backyard, but also gives a significant boost to our tourism industry with music fans far and wide expected to visit Darwin for the annual event.”
Quotes from Aria award-winning singer-songwriter, Amy Shark:
“Darwin is such a beautiful spot and I can’t wait to get back there for this year’s People’s Choice BASSINTHEGRASS music festival at Mindil Beach.
“I’m really excited to be back in the Territory for another Darwin show and look forward to performing a bunch of songs from my debut album Love Monster.”
