Keith Urban is just the start of a thrilling line up of the ‘‘best of the best’’, according to muster general manager Kate Pitt.

A great line-up of country and rock artists have now been announced to complement the headliner.

‘‘We really wanted to pull out all stops and come up with a dream line up that our fans would love,’’ Ms Pitt said.

‘‘We know we’ve delivered an awesome 18th birthday present.’’

Joining Urban for the party — to be held Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1 this year — are some of the country’s most well known and loved performers.

James Reyne will make his return to the muster stage this year, as will Adam Brand with his band The Outlaws.

Adding to the country theme, and also returning to the muster, will be ARIA hall of famer John Williamson, Troy Casser-Daly, The Sunny Cowgirls and Christie Lamb.

Ready for their muster debuts are Shannon Noll, Busby Marou, Catherine Britt and Deep Creek Road.

Noll’s rise to fame came in the first ever season of Australian Idol in 2003, where he was runner-up to Guy Sebastian, who has also once before graced the muster stage.

The Condobolin boy strikes a chord with legions of music fans, tapping into a pure emotion that’s both his own and instantly relatable.

Another muster act is Queensland duo Tom Busby and Jeremy Marou who make up Busby Marou.

They have forged a reputation as one of the hardest working musical acts in Australia.

Their single Biding My Time, from their second album Farewell Fitzroy, took out the APRA Award for Blues and Roots Work of the Year and came in at number 81 on triple j’s Hottest 100.

They also won APRA Music Award for Blues & Roots Work of the Year 2016 with their most recent single Days of Gold.

Catherine Britt’s recording career commenced in 1999 when at the tender age of 14 she released her first EP followed in 2001 by her debut album release.

Since then the country artist has released five more studio albums — with hits like Boneshaker and What I Did Last Night.

Deep Creek Road is a five-piece country rock band fronted by dual lead singers Steve Simmons and Jaime Holland.

Their debut album, Cowboy on the Run, was released in May 2013 and the first single Here and Gone received extensive airplay.

A limited number of pre-announcement tickets are still on sale, and only available until sold out.
