How to prep for BASS
Looking the goods and feeling good at People’s Choice BASSINTHEGRASS is without a doubt just as important as the line up, we get it.
While this probably isn’t your first rodeo, we wouldn’t be true Territorians without offering up our seasoned advice to ensure you get the most out of your day.
Summer threads - With temperatures hovering around the low 30s in May, you can forget about your winter woollies. While the southerners are shivering away in their skivvies, you’ll be repping shorts, shirts and skirts in sunny Darwin.
Slip, slop, slap! – Keep cool and look cool at BASS by packing a hat and some sunnies. We will also be providing complimentary sunscreen throughout the day, but bringing some of your own can’t hurt either.
Footwear – It’s pretty much guaranteed you’ll be dancing all day and all night long – so maybe don’t bring your best heels and stick to a pair of comfy shoes you don’t mind getting a little dirty.
I.D. - BASSINTHEGRASS has several fully licenced bars, and people 18+ will need to provide their ID to access these areas. That said, we don’t want anyone missing out, so kids under 13 can enter this all-ages event free with a ticketed adult.
Ticket – Of course you’ll need this to get in, but you can also flash it to the bus driver and get free public transport from the city to Mindil Beach (and back) on the day of the festival.
Cash - ATMs are available throughout the venue, but we would recommend bringing some cashola with you so you don’t miss a beat lining up in the queue.
Power - Anyone planning on spending bulk time on the ‘Gram might want to bring a portable phone charger. It also comes in handy for those times you get separated from your mates with 1% charge. We guarantee you’ll probably leave BASSINTHEGRASS with more friends than when you arrived though.
Hydration - We will be supplying complimentary bottles of water but make sure you visit the fill up stations throughout the day. You’ll thank us in the morning.
Respect - We are all about respect here at BASSINTHEGRASS. The festival takes place on land traditionally owned by the Indigenous Larrakia peoples. Please help us R-E-S-P-E-C-T country where you can.
Other than the above, we’d ask you to bring some good vibes, but there’s already plenty here.
