The 2021 Weethalle Country Music Muster has wrapped up for the year, after hosting close to 1000 guests over a packed-out week.
The week featured a wide range of independent artists and country-music-adjacent events, from live music and a 'poet's breakfast' to a camp oven damper competition won by Pam and Bob Beazley.
Wednesday marked the beginning of walk-up musicians, numbering around 25 by noon on the Friday.
Gayle Clark organises the event with her husband Allan, with 2021 marking just the second of what she hopes will be many musters.
Mrs Clark described the weekend as a huge success despite struggling against the setbacks of the last year.
"Along with every other music festival, we had to be cancelled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 outbreak which was hard to accept," she said.
"It went really well, it was way past our expectations. It was only our second one but it was very well appreciated by everybody. They all had a good time and said it was relaxing ... The COVID rules were a lot of extra work, but other than that, it went really well."
Next year's muster is already being planned for the end of April, now having confirmed several musicians to play and preparing for upwards of 300 caravans for next year. This year hosted around 220 caravans from across NSW for the muster.
Updates on the muster will be posted on the Weethalle Country Music Muster facebook page.
