Revellers ready to run amok at BASS
ABOUT 7500 music fans will flock to the Darwin Amphitheatre today for BASSINTHEGRASS.
Half the line-up is continuing their festival vibes after performing Groovin the Moo shows around the country.
Amy Shark said she was amazed at how beautiful Darwin was when she arrived yesterday afternoon.
“I’m stoked to be in Darwin and getting to see all these places I never thought I’d get to see,” she said.
Like some of the blokes from Thundamentals, Shark was disappointed to learn that the pristine waters were full of nasties and it was generally a bad idea to go swimming.
Tuka from Thundamentals said the hip-hop group were still riding high from their Groovin the Moo tours.
“It’s nice to keep the momentum going,” he said.
“And it’s a heaps similar line up to Groovin the Moo so we’re playing with a lot of our friends.” Gates open at 11am with local artists Rachel Rachel opening the festival followed by battle of the school bands winners, Stevie Jean and Fat Pigeon. Triple j unearthed winner Resin Moon will play before Amy Shark from about 12.30pm. Boo Seeka, LDRU, Tash Sultana, Thundamentals, The Veronicas, The Rubens and John Butler Trio will play before Peking Duk close out the show.
