Quotes from Minister for Tourism, Sport and Culture, Lauren Moss:

“The Territory Labor Government has boosted investment in the People’s Choice BASSINTHEGRASS Music Festival as part of turbocharging our major events and festivals, recognising that it’s great for the community and a real visitation driver.

“BASS is the Territory’s largest and most popular music festival and a staple on the Dry Season calendar, where locals and visitors of all ages can enjoy premium Australian music.

“Our increased investment in BASS means better returns for local business and more money into the economy.

“Held at Mindil Beach for the first time last year, the event attracted a record crowd, including thousands of interstate visitors, and put Darwin on the national music festival map.”
