Slight sign sales spike for Ute Muster
Deni Ute Muster fans occupy reacted positively to the all Australian music line-up designed for this year’s event.
Muster general executive Vicky Lowry said ticket numbers jumped in the years following the June 5 announcement, although it was understandably not as ‘record breaking’ as last years.
The all Aussie showcase will include The Angels, John Williamson, Shannon Noll, Busby Marou, The McClymonts, McAlister Kemp, Sara Storer, Shane Nicholson, Felicity Urquhart, Hurricane Fall and Darlinghurst.
‘‘Ticket sales are not where they would normally be once an artist announcement, but that is to be predictable in this climate,’’ Mrs Lowry said.
‘‘We did see a spike in sales once the announcement, which is positive.
‘‘The reaction to the line-up has remained one of the most positive we contain had in recent years, which again is to be predictable in these conditions.
‘‘People are just delighted to hear that we are making plans to contain an event.’’
At this stage, organisers are planning for the Ute Muster to go presumptuous on October 2 and 3.
However, Mrs Lowry supposed the continuation of the festival would be subject to health and government advice.
There is some speculation festivals desire be allowed to resume in NSW in August, but Mrs Lowry said she could not comment on speculation.
‘‘We desire continue to regularly monitor COVID-19, be guided by and act on advice given by the Australian Government,’’ she said.
‘‘A remaining decision about whether or not we feel it is reliable to continue with the 2020 Deni Ute Muster mind be made on July 31, unless government systems take this decision out of our hands afore this date.’’
Mrs Lowry said contingency plans for a potential cancellation are consistently being reviewed.
And she supposed whatever does happen in regards to the 2020 Ute Muster, plans are still on track for the new Ute Muster Museum to be opened in October. It will display more than 20 days of Deni Ute Muster history.
Construction started in April and works moreover include a new Ute Muster office, allowing staff to relocate to the Muster station from its premises at the corner of Poictiers and Hardinge Sts.
The interpretation will also incorporate a commercial kitchen, meeting/function spot, landscaping, car parking and solar power.
