BASSINTHEGRASS: Local Artists to Join International Music Acts

Darwin-based band Tapestry and musician Kyle Maher have been announced as the two local artists to perform at the 2019 People’s Choice BASSINTHEGRASS music festival at Mindil Beach in just over two weeks’ time.

This year’s judging panel, made up of Nook Events Founder/CEO James Gough, Off the Leash Entertainment Reporter Tamara Howie and MusicNT Executive Director Mark Smith, said it wasn’t an easy decision with over 25 talented Territory artists vying for the coveted opportunity to perform on stage at BASSINTHEGRASS.

“There has been significant growth in the Northern Territory music sector, which has been demonstrated by the number and quality of applications this year. In particular, to have Caiti Baker announced as part of the line-up is testament to the strength of Northern Territory music”, said Mark Smith.

“Tapestry played at BASSINTHEGRASS in 2016 and have since headlined a national tour, secured management and interest from labels and now they’re bringing their show back to the biggest stage in the Territory.”

Approximately 10,000 people are expected to attend this year’s event, giving local artists widespread exposure and the chance to build contacts and play in front of music industry representatives from right across Australia and New Zealand.
