An event long-held by the community, for the community, the Gympie Music Muster has helped generate more than $15 million in donations to charity and community groups since its inception in 1982.
This year, the Muster will be raising money for Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. The Muster will also host its very own Biggest Ever Bloke's Lunch, a ticketed event featuring special guests John Williamson, and guitar legend Tim Gaze, to raise money and awareness for the charity.
The Muster's Biggest Ever Bloke's Lunch will be held on Muster Friday (August 24) in celebration of the charity partnership, and will include a two-course sit down meal, guest speeches from John Williamson and Tim Gaze (who will also be performing), and an auction, with all proceeds going direct to PCFA. Tickets are $55, and are available for pre-purchase at www.muster.com.au.
The PCFA holds a special place in the heart of the Muster family, as performer Tim Gaze has been affected by the disease himself and credits Angry Anderson for virtually 'saving his life'. Tim has enjoyed a long career as one of Australia’s pre-eminent guitar players and vocalists, and through the years has been an influential member of several highly regarded Australian bands – Jimmy Barnes, Rose Tattoo, Tamam Shud, Kahvas Jute, Ariel and The Hoochie Coochie Men. A valued part of the Muster line-up over many years, Tim is a fixture at the festival's Guitar Jam, which brings together some of Australia's best guitarists to collaborate and perform together.
Tim Gaze is part of the Muster family, and will be returning again this year for the annual Guitar Jam, as well as the Muster's 'Biggest Ever Blokes Lunch'.
Held in the Amamoor Creek State Forest in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland, two hours north of Brisbane and 40 minutes from Noosa, the Muster is the perfect way to kick back and enjoy some of the country’s best talent. An unmissable and uniquely Australian event, one ticket price gives Muster goers free camping and multi-venue access to all performances, to experience everything Australia’s biggest country music celebration has to offer.
Run by the community, for the community, the Muster is a not-for-profit charity event which has raised in excess of $15 Million for charities Australia wide since its inception. It also gives a multi-million dollar boost to Queensland's tourism sector every year, providing an economic boom for the region.

SARA STORER – THE WOLFE BROTHERS – SHANE NICHOLSON
