The Bungendore showground gates open at 1pm on Monday before the festival weekend for campers to settle in and enjoy the week leading up to the Festival.
Camping costs $7 per person per night with an additional fee of $10 per night for power if required. The cost for the festival weekend is $60 per person which includes the Friday night concert, and the Saturday & Sunday festival entertainment.
Pre Muster entertainment includes a large walk up program, special guest artists on selected nights between Tuesday to Friday, and the Poet breakfasts from Tuesday till Saturday. There is also bingo and other activities, and local clubs and hotels also join in with shows in the village for those who like to get out and about.
In 2020 the Muster is hosting a special 35th anniversary concert on the Friday night featuring the Gunbarrell Highwaymen and guest artists.
