The 20th annual Argyle Diamonds Ord Valley Muster is set to be the best festival yet with three premier events added to this year’s new main venue. The 10-day affair will feature the new Art in the Park show; a cultural experience of arts, craft and song on May 17, The Flaming Galahs Great Australian Songbook on May 18, a concert celebrating Australia’s musical history and Auntie Boo’s Variety Dinner on May 21 all at the Celebrity Tree Park Festival Hub. The new addition of the hub to the festival hopes to improve capacity at events, including The Kimberley Moon Experience, at a location within walking distance of town and many accommodation options. Ord Valley Events chairman Beau Robinson said the new festival hub would be a major highlight for the 2020 muster. “The new venue layout provides even more space for Kimberley Moon general admission tickets with a direct line of sight to the stage and shade from scattered trees,” he said. “The festival hub will be the heart and soul of the year’s muster, providing a single source of event and tour information and a central pickup and drop-off point for tours and other events. “It’s great because it’s within walking distance of most accommodation in Kununurra, making the it immediately accessible without the need to worry about transport or who is skipper.” The Flaming Galahs show, featuring lead singer Monty Cotton and Adam Spaghetti Fingers on the upright bass, keyboard and ukulele, takes the audience along a cracking Australian musical time line with classics from Banjo Paterson, Slim Dusty, Hunters and Collectors, INXS, Powderfinger, Vance Joy, and more. During the show punters will have access to a full bar and a range of food vendors at the festival hub. Also new to the program are the four Secret Suppers from May 18- 21; themed meals with surprise menus in secret locations, and the El Questro Ultimate Day Out; a full-day program at the wilderness park including exploring, meals and entertainment. Mr Robinson said this year’s program has been bolstered to add a sense of celebration to the festival. “You could say that the new shows will be on the fringe, but that’s what a festival is about, creating a good time for everyone,” he said. “Besides the Corroboree, all events will be held at the new venue at Celebrity Tree Park, the Ord Valley Muster Hub which is walking distance to town.” Many muster favourites will also return including the Corroborree Under The Stars at the Waringari Arts Centre on May 21, the Muster Rodeo on May 23 and early morning Yoga Boats on Lake Kununurra from May 18 to 22. The regularly scheduled comedy night has expanded to two 18-plus shows on May 19 and 20 from comics Ivan Aristeguieta, Steph Tisdell, Kevin Kropinyeri and host Harley Breen. Finally, the finale of the festival will be a family-friendly closing party at the hub, similar to last year’s opening party which has been switched for The Kimberley Moon.
