Excitement is building for the inaugural Big Skies 2018 event, with the announcement of the stellar line-up of musicians for the ‘Day on the Plain’ rock concert.

  • Western Downs Regional Council is thrilled to announce a line-up of Australian music industry favourites for ‘Day on the Plain’ on Saturday 5 May 2018;
  • Set to take the stage at the stunning Jimbour House amphitheatre are music greats The Eurogliders; Wendy Matthews; Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows; Glenn Shorrock; Richard Clapton; and Frankie J Holden and Wilbur Wilde; and
  • Tickets are now available for purchase through the Big Skies website for $79.

Western Downs Regional Council Spokesperson for Economic Development Councillor Donna Ashurst said that for ‘Day on the Plain’ to attract musicians of this calibre in its inaugural year has set the reputation for Big Skies early.

“To have these big names all together for the event is incredible, and it’s certainly unprecedented for the Western Downs. We’re really excited to welcome all six acts to our region for a day of world-class music in a world-class location,” she said.

“An event like ‘Day on the Plain’ is amazing for the region: it’s a great opportunity to showcase and celebrate what makes the Western Downs special, all to the soundtrack of live music.”

Tickets to ‘Day on the Plain’ will go on sale just in time for the holiday season, priced at $79 for a festival experience in our own backyard.

“It’s a fantastic excuse to put a ticket under the Christmas tree to a one-of-a-kind local event, promising to be an experience like no other.”
