It’s the 20th anniversary of the Argyle Diamonds Ord Valley Muster this May. Alongside the signature events you love, the Kimberley’s biggest festival is better than ever in 2020 with these exciting new additions.
This year there will be a brand-new Festival Hub in the Kununurra town centre that brings everything within walking distance. Alongside returning favourites such as the Aviair Helispirit Kimberley Moon Experience, Comedy in the Park and the famous Argyle Diamond Dig, the Festival Hub will be home to a host of exciting new events premiering at the Muster in 2020.
Auntie Boo’s Variety Diner
Place your reservations, grab your drinks and take your seats for a night of comedy, burlesque and circus… Oh! And Auntie Boo’s famous Meat Raffle! (Not. Even. Kidding). Grab your mates and dates and kick back for the variety show that has it all.
Brought to you by the award-winning international team behind FRINGE WORLD’s Hot Sauce Burlesque, Phatcave and Bacchanalia, Auntie Boo is the Hostess with the Mostest, party bringer and Variety Queen. A murderous mistress of mayhem with a penchant for leopard print, she’s the friend who’ll help you bury the body at 4am.
Be sure to grab raffle tickets to go into the draw to win a fabulous tray of prime meats supplied by local butchers.
The Flaming Galahs: Great Australian Songbook
The Flaming Galahs’ Monty Cotton attracted national attention on The Voice for his uncanny resemblance to Johnny Cash. Join Monty and Adam ‘Spaghetti Fingers’ (double bass and banjo) as they take us along a cracking Australian musical timeline spanning a hundred years.
Fresh off the Fringe festival circuit, they’ll be playing all the classics from Banjo Patterson, Slim Dusty, Hunters and Collectors, INXS, Powderfinger, Vance Joy, and more!
Art in the Park
Curated exclusively under the stars for the Muster, Art in the Park is an open-air gallery that shines a spotlight on Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists from the region. Meander through the park, wine glass in hand, and discover arts and photography created with various mediums as Indigenous artists reveal the cultural and spiritual links between people and country. Artworks will be available for sale – perhaps a boab carving or a painting with gold leaf and rough diamonds will catch your eye!
Art in the Park is a family experience, so bring the kids along. We will have a special child friendly zone for those aged 4 – 15yrs.
