COUNTRY music star Lee Kernaghan will headline the Gympie Music Muster in the first artist announcement ahead of the August event held near Gympie.
At a launch at Gympie’s iconic Old Gympie Railway station last night, organisers revealed the headliners to perform at this year’s Muster, across four massive days from the 23rd to 26th August.
The first line-up announcement features Lee Kernaghan, Troy Cassar-Daley, John Williamson, Ian Moss, Beccy Cole, Sara Storer, The Wolfe Brother, Shane Nicholson, The Pigs, Hat Fitz and Cara, Fiona Boyes, Lloyd Spiegel and Blue Eyes Cry.
Gympie Music Muster program director Jeff Chandler said this year’s line-up featured the cream of Australian country music, coupled with some of the hottest blues acts on the circuit.
“Musicians like Ian Moss, Troy Cassar-Daley, Beccy Cole and Hat Fitz & Cara have real history with the Muster, and form part of our extended family of artists who regularly return to keep crowds entertained,” he said.
“But what sets our festival apart is that it’s so much more than a line-up. Throw in intimate Songwriter Sessions, an all-star guitar-shredding jam, line and rock ’n roll dancing, instrument workshops and some surprise collaborations, and you begin to understand why the Muster is a diverse and unique program that simply can’t be experienced anywhere else.”
