Deniliquin Ute Muster 29th & 30th September 2016
Review by Natasha Wyborn
20,000 die hard fans came, saw and eventually slid out of the 18th Deni Ute Muster on the weekend. No matter what the vehicle from a 100K cruiser right down to the standard suburban car, all fell victim to the mud. For a festival conceived on a swamp in the middle of the plains of the Murrumbidgee any down pour becomes an issue. Days prior to the event the region was having its heaviest rainfall in years. Confronting the punter was the mud bath starting on the road to the front gate and never left your boots for the entire festival. Many an expensive foot wear became carnage to the deluge. For the hardcore it was fun, something to play in, for the “glampers” it was an excuse to justify why they never like camping in the first place.
