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.
Adding more burn to CAMPFIRE FESTIVAL in 2015 is the inclusion of seven further well-respected and award-winning acts.

If Stone Music Festival’s first day was a salute to rock then day two proved a little more difficult to pigeonhole. The bill included an American piano man, two elder statesmen of Oz music, a new band and two former Australian Idol contestants. I suppose we’ll just have to say that this unlikely grouping meant that this was a celebration of music, pure and simple.
L.A. band, Illumination Road is a duo that was making their worldwide, live debut. The pair had three additional musicians on hand and they played rock music which took its reference points from some of the greats from the golden period in the sixties and seventies. “What We Say” closed the set and had a decent tune and with time these guys look poised to be ones to watch.
