Organisers have confirmed that Carrie Underwood’s only full concert appearance in Australia this year will be at the Deni Ute Muster on Saturday 29 September to close the Muster’s 20th birthday celebrations.
Tickets to the 20th birthday celebration have been selling like proverbial hotcakes with our Muster Adorer ticket allocation selling out within 2 hours of going on sale. Early Bird ticket allocations have also sold out and General Admission tickets are on sale now.
Reserved camping in the Edward River Flat, Wheat Fields, Rice Paddy and Peppin Paddock, Redgum, Stockyards, Oat Central and Sheep Run campsites have all sold out and only general camping is available.
The Deni Ute Muster is one of the top ‘bucket list’ events in Australia and annually attracts close to 20,000 people of all ages to celebrate all things laconically Australian and, of course, the iconic ‘ute’.
Playing times for the 2018 Deni Ute Muster are available now from here. This year’s spectacular line-up includes International Superstar, Carrie Underwood as well as homegrown faves Kasey Chambers, Busby Marou, Troy Cassar-Daley, Thirsty Merc, Gord Bamford, Travis Collins, Fanny Lumsden, The Pigs, Amber Lawrence, Doug Bruce & The Tailgaters, Kirsty Lee Akers and many more.
The Deni Ute Muster is excited to have Iron Jack ambassador Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins attending the event and giving patrons the opportunity to spend an afternoon having a beer and a yarn in the Iron Jack Bar.
Between the music and the AFL Grand Final on the big screen, there is wood chopping and whip cracking demonstrations, the World Record Blue Singlet Count, Ute Count, Show N Shine, the Bull Ride Spectacular, Brophy Bros Circus, Bob the Butcher, Peter Hodge Camel Rides and the Circlework, Barrel Race and Go to Wo competitions.
World Champion Sand Sculptor, Dennis Massoud, the Australian Ride on Lawn Mower Racing Association’s Lawn Mower Races, the Shimano Fishing Tank Show and, for the first time, Laser Tag will also keep our Musterers busy over the weekend.
And the fun and games don’t stop there. The Decentralised Demountables Family Centre will be open from 9am each day with free children’s activities including face painting, bubble blowing, stilt walking, hookey and much more.
In its first year (1999), the Deni Ute Muster had approximately 5,000 patrons and set a new Guinness World Record for the greatest number of legally paraded utes at 2,839 – a record which still stands today. Since 1999 the Deni Ute Muster has become the region’s biggest tourist drawcard and a celebration of all things Australian.
NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Adam Marshall, said the Deni Ute Muster is proudly supported by the NSW Government, via its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
“As one of the country’s premier regional events, the Deni Ute Muster encapsulates the uniqueness and vibrancy of Australia’s rural culture and to have international superstar Carrie Underwood perform exclusively in regional NSW, is a major coup,” Mr Marshall said.
“With a sensational program scheduled across two days, I encourage visitors to start planning their trip to Deniliquin for the chance to experience this standout regional event.”
The Deni Ute Muster has amazing community support with more than 1,000 volunteers mobilising each year to help put on the event which donates close to $100,000 back to community groups.
Deni Ute Muster General Manager, Vicky Lowry, said today, “We are on the countdown as the excitement is starting to build and the Deni Ute Muster Site is busy in preparation for all our patrons to come and help celebrate our 20th year and enjoy Carrie Underwood’s only Australian Show”.
