Kylie Edwards bought more than music to Broken Hill

Publicity Director for some of Australia’s most iconic Outback Music festivals, Kylie Edwards bought more than music to Broken Hill in April when the inaugural Mundi Mundi Big Bash hit the outback town for a three day festival of Australian rock.
The never before staged event bought millions of dollars in tourism revenue to Outback NSW, also bringing an injection of fun to the Broken Hill community.

Kylie says, “The challenges of staging a multi-day music concert on the scale of the Mundi Mundi Bash literally in the middle of nowhere are huge. I work closely with the event organisers and the logistics that go into the event are phenomenal.  Earlier on in the event planning Covid was a huge issue, and then in the days before the event opened to the public they battled unseasonable flooding in the region.  The determination and resilience of the team is incredible.”

The event is an all ages, dog friendly three day camping event so ensuring that once festival goers have rolled into their Mundi Mundi Plains campsite they’re well entertained is paramount. And it’s not all about the big stage performers such as Paul Kelly, Ian Moss, John Williamson and Kate Ceberano.  Throughout the day there’s something for everyone – from sunrise yoga to doggy dress-up competitions, to dunny door painting, comedy and acrobatic performances from the Crack Up Sisters, to the hilarious Mundi Undie Run, the Nutbush City Limits world records dance off and the Mad max dress up world record attempt.

The days were nice and warm, however early in the morning when we were doing breakfast TV crosses and at the end of the day when the sun went down, I just wanted to feel light and loved, so I wrapped myself in the Emerald Green.

I work on a lot of major events throughout the year. My moto is pack light and usually dark clothes and top them with a bright scarf. Can’t wait to snuggle into this travel wrap at the next Mundi Mundi Big Bash from 18-20 August, and out in the Simpson Desert for the Birdsville Big Red Bash from July 5-7.

As a busy mum with 16 year old son and ten year old daughter based in Port Macquarie NSW, it’s going to get a lot of use on the sidelines, on beach walks with our dogs and when catching up with friends – which often involves outdoor fun around a fire pit.

Love the quality, the fact that it’s sustainably made and comes from a small Australian company.
