THE vibe is starting to build out Amamoor Creek way as Music Muster patrons continue to roll up ahead of the weekend’s jam-packed program.

Yesterday, 2008 Muster Talent Search winner Liam Brew’s sister Kolora Brew and her friend Abby Watson from Mooloolah were out and about listening to some great music.

Sarah Rohdmann joined the experienced Muster fans enjoying the sunshine ahead of Friday’s line up.

This is the first Muster for the Bundaberg teenager, 16, but she is already planning to come back in future years.

SARAH Rohdmann arrived for her first look at the music festival on Wednesday and was impressed.

“It’s been pretty good. Not what I expected, but better,” she said.

For the folk genre fan, who likes a little country, the event had a great range of music to keep her entertained.

And she might go home with a better appreciation of country music.

“I’ve been getting into the country.”

Sarah is staying with her aunt Jenny Kennedy and they are roughing it, with Ms Kennedy, a seasoned Muster patron, sleeping in a swag under the stars and Sarah in a converted section of her car.

Hitting the Crow Bar for the first time on Thursday night, Sarah said she really enjoyed the line up.

Yesterday she was out soaking up the sunshine after experiencing her first chilly Amamoor Creek morning.

“I didn’t expect it to be so cold. It was zero last night,” she said on Friday.

“It’s been good days, but there was ice on the car this morning.

It was a “shock” for the teenager, who had only ever experienced the minimum temperature of six degrees.

As unprepared for the cold as she was, Sarah combated the chills by layering up her clothes.

Muster patrons should be prepared for more chilly weather with minimum predictions for this morning starting at five degrees and Sunday morning at eight degrees.

But with a maximum of 23 and sunshine expected the days will be bright and breezy.

There is talk of a possible afternoon shower on Sunday so make sure you pack the poncho if you are heading out.

On the police front, Muster patrons had been very well behaved, with only one incident so far Muster Police Shift Supervisor Sergeant Scott Poole said.

That incident on Wednesday night saw an under age Noosa boy, 17, removed from the Blues Bar by security officers and police stripping him of his season pass.

Sgt Poole said apart from that one incident, the week had gone well and although Friday night would be busier he didn’t expect there would be any more upsets during the rest of the Muster.
