MUSTER TALENT SEARCH

IT’S BACK!  The competition that helped kick start the careers Mark O’Shea, Drew McAlister, Liam Brew and Brooke McClymont.  If you’ve ever sung into a hairbrush, danced in the dark or played some savage air guitar, there’s a chance you might want to do it for real in front of a judging panel at Gympie Music Muster this August.  Digital auditions will determine fitness to take a spot in the semis, and winners will be decided on Main Stage on the last day of Muster.   Next stop Nashville.  Talent knows no age boundaries … the next big thing could be you. 

APPLY NOW in the Junior (12-17 years) or Open (18+) categories.
