What started as the ‘Play on the Plains Festival’ and evolved into Australia’s biggest celebration of ute life and ute culture was scheduled to celebrate its 22nd birthday on 2-3 October. However, after consultation with relevant government and health officials, organisers have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Muster.
In a statement released on 10 July, event GM, Vicky Lowry, said the following:
“Due to the current COVID-19 outbreaks and the evolving situation, and after consultation with government and health officials, it is not possible to predict what will happen in the coming months and we must make the health and safety of our patrons and staff our top priority.
“2020 Deni Ute Muster tickets, and Reserved Camping tickets, will be automatically valid for the 2021 ‘Muster’ to be held on 1 and 2 October, 2021. If you are retaining your ticket for 2021 there is no further action for you to take.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their patience and support and will continue to respond to questions on our social media accounts as we begin to move forward and plan for 2021. We look forward to seeing you on 1 and 2 October 2021 when we will be back bigger and stronger.”
