2003 Toyoya National Country Muster

Scroll down for Photo Listing

The best way to describe the Gympie Muster is sensationally successful, for the fans, the artists, the organisers and the small army of volunteers that ran this fantastic event so smoothly. With ticket sales topping 80,000 plus, that is an enormous amount of Country Music lovers converging into a State Forest to experience the biggest and the best Muster ever. The weather was very mild with cool nights and warm days and just a couple of night time showers to settle the dust. With the Gympie Apex Club supported by many other hard working charities making sure the campers had plenty of hot showers, clean toilets, great food and cold drinks, all provided with a smile and a caring attitude.

The quality of entertainment enjoyed was world class and ranged from Blues, Rockabilly, Bluegrass and traditional Country with many overseas artists adding an International flavour.  The Poets and Bluegrass Breakfasts were popular as were the clogging and line dancing classes. With 11 huge marquees pumping out varying  types of entertainment as well as the open air main stage in a natural ampitheatre providing something for everyone. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons and evenings headlined by the likes of Troy Cassar-Daley, Kasey Chambers, Lee Kernaghan, Adam Harvey and John Williamson plus many others, had the mosh pit and the hill completely covered with not a blade of grass left standing. It was amazing how well behaved and friendly the fans were as they experienced an event that will be hard to top. Well done Gympie.
