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.

Each year the Deni Ute Muster asks their audience to name which artists they’d most like to see and every year Australia’s international music superstar Keith Urban’s name is at the top of the list, so it is with great excitement that the organisers behind the iconic Deni Ute Muster today announce that Keith Urban has been confirmed to headline the Muster on 30 September 2016.

It was a perfect night for the final a day on the green at Bimbadgen on Saturday. Warm afternoon culminating with a cool evening. At 7.00pm Chris Isaak dressed in his famous 15 kilogram blue mirrored suit took to the stage and shortly after owned it. The 59 year old was in fine form. “I hope I am in the right place dressed like this or I need to go ice skating”, The Californian crooner remains as charming as he is talented. Introducing the audience to an array of hits and covers during his almost 2 hour set.

The 2015 Melbourne Zoo Twilight Series is off to an incredible start. After announcing a sell out, and then second show for Paul Kelly Presents The Merri Soul Sessions featuring Clairy Browne, Kira Puru, & Vika and Linda Bull we can now announce that Bernard Fanning’s show has officially SOLD OUT. Audiences rushed to snag tickets to this commended acoustic guitarist and legendary lyricist with his live band in one of summer’s most beautiful venues – a dusk evening surrounded by dazzling wildlife, set in the heart of Melbourne.
The second annual ONE ELECTRIC DAY has announced another massive line-up to rock the great lawn of Werribee Park this November. With the likes of Hoodoo Gurus, James Reyne playing Australian Crawl, Mondo Rock, Diesel, Daryl Braithwaite and Boom Crash Opera, this is set to be the ultimate day of Aussie Rock. Last year’s inaugural event sold out well in advance and it’s anticipated that the 2014 festival of rock will be no different.
Event organiser Duane McDonald says he has already had many enquiries about the ONE ELECTRIC DAY show prior to announcing this year’s event, all based around the popularity of the 2013 show. “Last year’s show sold out a couple of months in advance,” he says. “It was a fantastic family event and we had great reviews from patrons and media alike. We have a commitment to continue to give music fans outside of the city a chance to see the calibre of concerts and festivals that patrons attending shows in metro centres have. ONE ELECTRIC DAY is an event that we will continue to grow every year and we’re excited about the fantastic line-up of legendary Australian artists on this year’s bill. I am excited to bring this event to Werribee for a second year, it is a fantastic venue with the magnificent backdrop of the iconic Werribee Mansion.”
The announcement of The Melbourne Zoo Twilights 2014 program towards the end of last year received a red hot response from music lovers with three shows selling out well ahead of the start of the season. Tickets to shows featuring Jessica Mauboy, Xavier Rudd and James Reyne and Daryl Braithwaite sold out in record time, with other shows selling fast.
Melbourne Zoo Twilights offer a unique experience combining wildlife, stunning musical performances and gourmet delights, all within the spectacular grounds of Melbourne Zoo, under the blanket of balmy summer nights.
