INTERNATIONALLY-renowned band, Spiderbait is making their debut appearance in front of what is anticipated to be a massive crowd at the Optus National Music Muster this year along with second time Muster performers Thirsty Merc.

Held in Amamoor State Forest Park, the Optus Music Muster will celebrate its 29th birthday this August, with only six short weeks before the six-day iconic event opens its doors.

“This year’s Muster program is going to be another fantastic showcase of the wide range of talent Australia has to offer – including all the Muster favourites,” Muster chairman Carl Green said.

Famous for their hit singles “In the Summertime” and “Emancipate myself” ARIA nominated and multi-platinum selling, Thirsty Merc, are spending the weeks leading up to the Muster on a national tour spanning over eight states/territories to promote their new album “Mousetrap Heart”.

“We are excited to welcome Thirsty Merc to the Muster stage for the first time and look forward to hearing hits from their new album,” Artist co-ordinator Mary-Lou Goodall said.

Carl said that Thirsty Merc would be joined by a newcomer to the Muster stage, Spiderbait, although they were definitely not newcomers to the Australian music scene.

Kram (drums, vocals), Janet (bass, vocals) and Whitt (guitar, vocals) have been performing together for more than 15 years as Spiderbait, with 22 songs on Greatest Hits including hit single “Black Betty”.

Carl said Thirsty Merc and Spiderbait are just some of the Australian artists not to be missed on the Muster stage this year.

The Optus National Music Muster is to be held at Amamoor Creek State Forest Park from August 24-29.
