Deni Ute Muster Returns with an All-Australian Celebration!
Like football, meat pies, kangaroos and the trusty ute, the Deni Ute Muster is quintessentially Australian and following some of the country’s toughest months, we’re sharing our plans for our biggest ever homegrown celebration full of music and mateship on 1 and 2 October 2021.
Tickets to the 2021 Deni Ute Muster have been off sale during the pandemic lockdowns and we’re thrilled to announce that they’ll be back on sale at midday today, as well as details of our All Aussie extravaganza and our plans for a fully cashless Muster.
Ready to turn up the volume on the Muster stage will be some of our most loved and respected country/pop artists including John Williamson, The Angels, Busby Marou, Troy Cassar-Daley, Shannon Noll, The McClymonts, McAlister Kemp, Sara Storer, Shane Nicholson, Felicity Urquhart, Hurricane Fall and Darlinghurst.
Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney, Stuart Ayres, said the NSW Government was proud to support the Deni Ute Muster through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
“The Deni Ute Muster is one of Australia’s premier rural events, so to have it back on the NSW events calendar is fantastic news for the Deniliquin community,” Mr Ayres said.
“We know that regional events like these provide great entertainment, while creating jobs and injecting significant dollars into our state’s economy. I encourage everyone to get behind the 2021 Deni Ute Muster by purchasing tickets soon so they don’t miss out on this fantastic line-up and iconic celebration of all things Australian.”
Deni Ute Muster General Manager, Vicky Lowry, said today, “It is exciting to see the live music industry making a comeback. The Deni Ute Muster are proud to be supporting Australian artists for 2021. We look forward to welcoming back everyone to our 23rd year after only being able to celebrate our 22nd year virtually. Moving forward, the Deni Ute Muster will be guided by advice / recommendations received by the government with health and safety our number one priority whilst planning. Thank you for your support over the last 12 months, we hope to see you in 2021”.
John Williamson’s unofficial anthems, tributes to legends and unsung heroes and tender ballads have captured the spirit of the nation in song unlike any other. His honest and passionate songs are synonymous with the country that inspires him and connect him with his countrymen regardless of age, sex or creed. Add to this his ability to deliver unforgettable live concert experiences that combine the perfect blend of humour, romance and campfire stories woven together by his music. You can understand why he remains one of the most in-demand live performers in Australia.
With a music career now spanning close to fifty years, there would seem to be little more for John Williamson to achieve. Having been inducted into the prestigious ARIA Hall of Fame, the recipient of three ARIA Awards, twenty-seven Golden Guitars, three APRA Awards, MO Awards, countless Platinum and Gold album accreditations and album sales of in excess of five million, he has done it all but more than anything, John wants an audience to walk away feeling proud to be Australian.
Described by Jimmy Barnes as “A band that changed Australian music forever”, when it comes to great Aussie rock it doesn’t come much better than The Angels. Thirteen studio albums, eight Top 10 albums, 17 Top 40 singles … but that tells only part of The Angels’ story. It’s the relationship with the audience that means everything to the band, built via thousands of gigs. It’s an exhilarating exchange of energy. As co-founder Rick Brewster notes, “The hour-and-a-half onstage is what makes it all worthwhile”.
It’s been over four decades since brothers Rick and John Brewster co-founded the iconic band and penned some of Australia’s most anthemic tracks. The Angels are widely reputed for their killer live shows. With hits like Long Line, Marseille, Be With You, After the Rain, Shadow Boxer and Mr Damage to name a few, we can’t wait to have them back on the Muster stage for another massive singalong!
The overwhelming feeling that emanates from Busby Marou is joy – Tom Busby’s playful onstage presence combined with Jeremy Marou’s freakish instrumental ability has cemented their reputation as one of the most loved live bands to come out of Australia in recent times.
Busby Marou’s debut self-titled album was certified Gold in July 2014, while their follow up album Farewell Fitzroy debuted at #5 on the album chart. Postcards From The Shell House, released in 2017 was the band’s first ARIA #1 album and was followed by the critically acclaimed The Great Divide in 2019.
There’s a potent chemistry that drives Busby Marou, a bond struck between two mates years ago in the corner of Rockhampton’s Oxford Hotel, when they happily knocked out tunes for hours on end to anyone who would listen. And it’s that unwritten agenda, a simple intangible understanding between them, that they have come back to in order to shape their remarkable career.
Troy Cassar-Daley has come from a long line of storytellers and shares his musicianship with so many artists across different styles of music and has released 10 studio albums throughout his thirty years of making music.
His passion to pen stories about this land and what lies at the heart of it has been a driving force in his career. Troy’s natural authenticity is the bloodline of his music that endears him to his ever-growing number of fans from every walk of life.
Troy has been awarded numerous accolades including 37 Golden Guitars, 4 ARIA Awards, 2 APRA Country Song of the Year Awards, 9 Deadlys (Australian Indigenous Artist Awards), 4 CMAA Entertainer of the Year Awards plus 2 NIMAs (National Indigenous Music Awards). In 2017 Troy was honoured as the 50th inductee into the prestigious Australasian Roll Of Renown. He has had numerous gold and platinum albums and achieved a staggering 32 #1 chart singles.
Troy Cassar-Daley’s songs have been the soundtrack to the everyday triumphs, struggles and good times for Australians from our small towns to the big cities and we’re thrilled
Shannon Noll’s everyman appeal lies in his honesty, he strikes a chord with legions of music fans, tapping into a pure emotion that’s both his own and instantly relatable.
