5th - 11th February 2024

2023 THANK YOU!!

The entire crew at the Rotary Club of Smithton's Devil Country Muster would like to thank you all for attending our 2023 Muster.
From the minute the gates opened to our first lot of campers at 9 am last Monday, right through to our last campers leaving yesterday and all the amazing things in between, THANK YOU!!
Live music is back and we have all had a ball this past week.
Congratulations to Dakota Plummer who won this year’s Devil Country Muster Talent Quest.
Thank you to all the people who put their name down for our walk-up show hosted by our beautiful friends, Chris & Viv Boys. It was even nice to unearth some talent from our campers.
Friday night’s variety concert saw some surprise guests including Pete Denahy and Justin Standley jump up on stage and join in the fun of a great night. The Clinton Hutton Band entertained us for the rest of the night with the dance floor full of people having a fabulous time.
Saturday - THE MAIN EVENT was spectacular.
From local sisters, Breah and Shayla opening the Muster’s main event followed by Cole B. Smith and Mike Carr who were newcomers to this years event followed by Tassie’s local legend Gina Timms who has been here for all 10 Musters the day was off to a great start.
Pete Denahy kicked off the afternoon session joined by Dean Perrett, Amber Joy Poulton, Justin Standley, Aleyce Simmonds, Duncan Toombs Music and the man himself, Adam Harvey totally wowed the crowd.
Star Pickets closed out Saturday getting people up and dancing.
Sunday’s session was a beautiful laid-back morning of some great gospel songs from Chris & Viv Boys, Breah and Shayla, Justin Standley, The Riverbend Quartet and Gina Timms.
A real treat was a very powerful version of Amazing Grace delivered by Gina, Justin and Chris, what a way to wind up the 2023 Muster.
The Bass Highway saw a large contingent of Caravans, RV’s and Campers heading up the coast some going home, some going to explore Tassie and some heading to the Spirit of Tasmania for their journey home.
We are doing it all again next year folks.
Lock in the dates - Monday 5th February 2024 our camp grounds will open up with live music everyday from Wednesday 9th February through to Sunday 11th February 2024.
Book the Spirit of Tasmania early to avoid disappointment and tickets and camping will go on sale from the 7th August 2023.
Our volunteers and Rotary Club of Smithton members were amazing all week and leading up to the Muster, they are our heroes.

When the family grows, well so must the family home. The patrons of the Devil Country Muster are like family but each year our family is growing.

The Rotary Club of Smithton’s Devil Country Muster that has had Trawmanna on Mella Road in Smithton as its home for the last few years, is now relocating out to the popular Riverbend Youth Centre complex on Trowutta Road about 10 minutes south of the Smithton CBD.

The Riverbend Youth Centre complex will allow the muster which is held in the third week of February each year to expand and continue to grow.

New event managers, the Publicity Stunt team are excited to be able to welcome the new venue which will see more room for more caravans and RV’s who come for the whole week each year.

A natural amphitheatre feel at the Riverbend Youth Centre complex along with wind protection from the large trees, will give patrons attending a wonderful experience and there is plenty of room for expansion in the future.

With more general parking, dedicated disabled parking, a playground for the kids and the gorgeous Duck River flowing by, we are already off to a great start.

It is a lovely drive along the Trowutta Road to reach the Riverbend Youth Centre complex and people may even be lucky enough to site one of the majestic eagles who live out that way or even spot the odd Platypus in the river stream.

The Rotary Club of Smithton are very excited about the new venue and outgoing event manager, Eric Marshall said, “Who would of thought all those years ago when we wanted to bring a live country music event to Smithton that a few years on we would be celebrating our 10th birthday at the 2023 muster and needing a much larger venue such as the Riverbend Youth Centre complex to achieve this. This great venue is right at our front door and the muster can stay in Smithton.”

With Adam Harvey leading a great line-up of Australian country music artists, patrons will be treated to some momentous events throughout the week with self-contained caravans and RV’s welcome to check in from Monday the 13th of February.

The Wednesday night will see the annual talent quest return with a sausage sizzle available to purchase, Thursday night Chris and Viv Boys are back to host and entertain the onsite campers and members of the public who come along and jump up and perform a song at the walk-up show. Friday night the Clinton Hutton Band will bring a great vibe to the Riverbend Youth Centre complex in readiness for a full program on Saturday, muster day.
Talented local duo, Breah and Shayla will kick the muster off followed by Col B Smith, Mike Carr and Gina Timms prior to the mainland country artists continuing the muster program well into the evening.

Aleyce Simmonds from Tamworth will join us for her first Devil Country Muster and returning in 2023 will be muster favourites, Justin Standley, Amber Joy Poulton, Pete Denahy, Dean Perrett, and Duncan Toombs along with the impressive muster band.

Sherry and Wayne Rand and Cooltrain will wind up the Saturday muster with a 2-hour live show from 7.30 pm. To bring the 2023 muster to a close will be the country gospel show on the Sunday morning.

A super early bird ticket special will start on the 1st of November 2022 where patrons will receive $10 off when they purchase a combined Friday/Saturday muster ticket.

Celebrating a ten-year milestone, this will be a muster not to be missed, at the new home of the Devil Country Muster, the Riverbend Youth Centre complex.



Don't miss out on this spectacular event!
