Australia’s largest party on the plains kicks off in 77 more sleeps and organisers of the Deni Ute Muster have announced the full program of music, fun and games in store when the Muster opens the gates on 29 and 30 September.
The Day Stage line up has now been finalised with a mix of up-and-coming local artists and country music favourites set to help keep the music pumping from 9.00am until 11.30pm each night.
Kicking off the action after the official opening on Friday morning are Bush Poets, Deni Showcase, crowd favourites Deni Uke Muster, The North Westers, Angela Easson, Pete Denahy, Rachael Fahim and Simply Bushed will warm up our musterers for the Main Stage kick off at 5.00pm.
Saturday morning’s line up includes Bush Poets, Deni Showcase and the Deni Uke Muster joining the celebration before the Blue Singlet Count kicks off in the Main Arena at 12 noon. Once counting has completed, the Day Stage lights up again with Anna Bowie, Seleen McAlister, The Mason Boys, Tori Forsyth and Josh Setterfield.
Playing times for the Day and Main Stages are now available here
The Deni Ute Muster isn’t just about the music – it’s an all Aussie extravaganza including the return wood chopping and whip cracking demonstrations, the World Record Blue Singlet Challenge, Ute Count, Show N Shine, miniature pig racing, the Bull Ride Spectacular, the Brophy Bros Circus, Matt Falloon and His Trained Balloons, Matt Mingay and Madzy Evel’s Off Road Show, the Reptile Awareness Display, camel rides and Circlework, Barrel Race and Go to Wo competitions to the entertainment menu.
Also on the menu for all those budding Masterchefs out there, we’re introducing something a little different this year with our own Bob the Butcher demonstrating how to successfully breakdown lamb, beef and pork just like a, well, master chef.
For our young, and not so young, Musterers feeling energetic and up for a challenge, Bubble Soccer 2 U, Soccer Darts and the Bungee Run will be on site to keep them active and have a few laughs at the same time. Our littlest Musterers haven’t been forgotten with the Family Centre open from 9am each day with free children’s activities including face painting, bubble blowing, stilt walking, hookey and Carnival Corner.
For 19 years the iconic Deni Ute Muster has been the Labour Day long weekend destination of choice for ute and music enthusiasts and 2017 is set to deliver its biggest main stage line up ever for a mega weekend of fun, music, mateship and, of course, utes. Thanks to the AFL Grand Final Friday holiday, our Victorian friends get to join the fun with their own long weekend too.
The Deni Ute Muster is one of the top bucket list events in Australia with around 18,000 patrons flocking to Deniliquin in southern New South Wales each long weekend.
Deni Ute Muster General Manager, Vicky Lowry, said today, “Our team at the Deni Ute Muster have put together an amazing line up, including 2 days of entertainment for all ages. We are pleased to announce our Day Stage acts, to promote the up and coming of Australian Country and to showcase the talents of our Local artists. Let the Countdown begin! We look forward to welcoming you to Party on the Plains“
The Deni Ute Muster is proudly supported by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
