Fes­ti­val of Utes

Newsweek International - - CONTENTS - PETER PARKS

Whip-crack­ing rev­el­ers at­tend the Deni Ute Muster, a raunchy cel­e­bra­tion of, yes, a car: Down Un­der’s sa­cred util­ity ve­hi­cle, the Ute. On Septem­ber 29, nearly 20,000 peo­ple at­tended the week­end bash, fea­tur­ing per­for­mances by coun­try stars like Car­rie Un­der­wood, bull-rid­ing, mud-wrestling and, of course, co­pi­ous amounts of beer. The fes­ti­val was hatched 20 years ago to at­tract tourists to the re­gion.
