MUSTER DAY 1: What you can't miss this Thursday

TWO global music superstars are set to feature in a special opening night of the Gympie Music Muster this Thursday - without even setting foot on site.

A double whammy of Crowbar performances will pay tribute to two modern legends of the rock and pop genre as festival-goers warm up for a blockbuster three-day weekend.
