If you're already panicking at the prospect of winter, don't. Make plans to warm up instead — here's one to get you started.

On Saturday, May 18, a stack of ace musicians, who've been charting mega hits and touring around the planet in the last year or so, will be converging on Darwin for BASSINTHEGRASS 2019 festival. Now in its 17th year, the one-day shindig is about to hit the northern coast for the first time. More specifically, you'll find it at Mindil Beach, a dreamy stretch of sand just a 20-minute walk from downtown Darwin. In between catching your favourite artists, you can gaze out at the Timor Sea and forget that winter is waiting for you back home, as you soak up bucketloads of Top End sunshine.

Before (or afterwards), there are plenty of Darwinian adventures to add to your musical ones — from cuddling crocodiles at Crocosaurus Cove to checking out local Indigenous art at The MAGNT.

Check out the full lineup below.
