What's On? 10 things to see and do this week

1: The 2017 Gympie Music Muster


August 24-27

Where: Amamoor State Forest

Well Gympie, it's that time of year again.

The Gympie Music Muster is one of the biggest music festivals in Australia.

Having been held since its humble beginnings in 1982, it has steadily grown into a linchpin of the Australian country music scene.

Featuring artists such as Chad Morgan, Jessica Mauboy and recent Voice winner Judah Kelly, the only thing more impressive than the talent on stage is the sheer variety of music you'll hear.

The Muster kicks off on Thursday, and runs until Sunday night.

Tickets and info at muster.com.au.
