MUSTER is a festival with a social conscience and this year, our conscience is camped with Mental Health in rural and regional Australia. In support of our 2019 charity partner, The Royal Flying Doctor Service, Queensland and their efforts to provide services in remote areas of Queensland, we are encouraging our customers to concentrate on their wardrobes (or lack of) this year.
We can offer two suggestions: the first is simple, the other a bit more, well, Funkulous.
#1 – GET NAKED 4 MUSTER
Our Naked Farmer affiliated #getnaked4muster photo competition hopes to gather an album of undressed Muster Customers for social media sharing and to raise awareness of mental health. The theory behind it is that it takes just as much guts to take your gear off as it does to talk about mental health.
We would like to see you in your Birthday Suit (we know you all own one), but NOT AT MUSTER where the frosty weather might not show you in your best light. Any time between now and then, take a pic and enter it into our #getnaked4muster photo competition. You could be Mr / Ms August in the 2020 Naked Farmer Charity Calendar and walk away with some other great prizes including merchandise and Muster 2020 tickets.
Judging will be done by the Naked Farmer himself (no, he won’t be naked) at Muster over the weekend.
#2 – FUNKY SHIRT FRIDAY
For the more modest amongst you, dredge up a loud or lairy shirt, just for Muster Friday [August 23].
Start a conversation wearing the one your gran gave you for Christmas, your fave op-shop bargain or that paisley flannie you use to clean the windscreen. The funkier the better. The Trade Mutt fashionistas have made an art of the funky shirt for fellas with the intention that it will kick start a chat (as in “what the funk is that shirt you have on?”) They will be there with their shirts on display if you are stuck for wardrobe ideas.
Our Royal Flying Doctor Service crew love a good selfie. Snap a pic with them (and your funky shirt) at their flight simulator site on Muster Friday. Share on socials and tag us #mates4muster to go in the draw to win tickets to Muster 2020.
