Ambassador Named:

At the Gympie Show last week, The Muster announced Travis Collins as the 2017 Gympie Music Muster Ambassador! It has been a big hear already for Travis who won 3 of the top Golden Guitar awards at Tamworth Music Festival in January and then another 3 at the CMC Awards prior to the CMC Rocks Festival.

“I’ve seen all sides of the Muster, from many years camping with family, to performing on main stage, having a rum with mates in the legendary Crow Bar, or grabbing a new pair of boots at one of the many onsite shops,”  he said.  “I still don’t know what element I love most about the Muster… It’s just that kind of magic place and iconic event that offers an experience like no other. From the full electric buzz of mind-blowing Aussie entertainment each day and night, to the silent calm and eerie stillness of morning and native bird calls waking the campers, and setting up camp beside strangers on day one but leaving as lifelong mates come day five… catching up with them the following year… and the year after that.”


With many Australian country music fans upset the Gympie Muster hasn’t succumbed to the demand for large international acts. There are still a respectable number of loyal festival-goers who rock up every year, weeks in advance to set up camp. Most probably next to the same crowd as the year before. Excited to meet new people and celebrate another year of Aussie Country and all that entails.

I remember heading to this festival 25 years ago and recently just started taking my kids! While the drop to the low 10s at night is not the most appealing aspect of the festival. The music, people and atmosphere more then makes up for it!

So in order to catch me at the festival, head over and grab yourself some tickets
