Gympie Music Muster

If you go for a bushwalk in the Amamoor State Forest in August, you may think the land has been taken over by howling cowboys and drunk campers.

Don't fear, it's only the biggest Muster to date with thousands of supporters enjoying the best country music on offer.

Artsits are yet to be announced but early bird tickets are on sale now. Past Gympie Music Musters have proved to be enormous fun with Kasey Chambers, Lee Kernaghan and James Blundell just a few of the huge Australian country music artists to take to the stage. Last year celebrated the 30th anniversary of this crazy country festival, and this year is only shaping up to be bigger.

As well as six days of our nation's best country, folk and blues music, visitors can engage in other activites such as well as bush poetry, linedancing, market strolling and other live entertainment.

Oh, and I forgot to mention Clogging.

Clogging? What on earth is clogging?

At first I thought it was some kind of physical activity where participants are clogging one another over the head with a shoe or similar, but no. It's a type of folk dance, originating from America-it's also been referred to as flat-footing, foot-stomping or bucks dancing.

The Gympie music Muster offers plenty of camping space with the fee included in your ticket price, and to put a spin on the traditional camping, there will be a competition running for the most interesting and/or environmentaly friendly camp site. There's a reason right there to pitch a tent. If roughing it and sleeping on the ground isn't your thing, there are other accommodation alternatives available. Just visit the website for more info.

August may seem like a fair way away, but with a huge lineup in the works, tickets will sell out quick, so jump online to secure your pass.
