Less than a week to go. The runaway international success that was the inaugural Mulletfest in 2018, is back at The Chelmsford Hotel this Saturday 23 February.
What began as an idea over drinks in a small NSW country town and quickly became the talk of the nation as mullet growers and lovers turned up in droves to celebrate the uniquely Aussie style. We are on the lookout once again for the ultimate classic Aussie haircut.
There’s some big news leading up to the big day. Tomorrow morning (Tuesday 19 Feb) the Sunrise weatherman Sam Mac will be joining the locals here at the Chelly for a preview of the big event. Now is your chance to get your mug on national TV so come on down to the pub from 5 am and be part of the fun. The pub will be trading and there will be bacon and egg rolls and a coffee cart for all your breakfast needs.
In other big news, every great event needs a theme song and now Mulletfest has one. Party in the back written by multiple Golden Guitar winner Lyn Bowtell and Mulletfest co-creator Laura Johnson and performed by local Chris Williams. This all Aussie anthem will get stuck in your head was just released to radio. Chris and his band will debut the song on Sunrise on Tuesday. It will be available to download on iTunes on the 22nd Feb. Profits from the sale of this song go directly to the Mark Hughes Foundation to help support Brain Cancer Nurses and Research!
With close to 150 entries last year, organisers are well on their way to topping this number this year with entries from all over the country and for those sporting the classic cut overseas, there is even an international category. Details of how to enter can be found on facebook or at www.mulletfest.com.au
Not only is Mulletfest is a great day out for the whole family, but It’s also your chance to raise money for a cause close to our hearts, the Mark Hughes Foundation. Brain cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in children, and adults aged under 40 in Australia, yet alarmingly very little is known about brain cancer, its causes or how it is treated! That is why the Mark Hughes Foundation was formed so that research can be carried out to decrease mortality rates and decrease the incidence of brain cancer in Australia. We want to do what we can to help. So whether you are sporting a mullet, know someone who is or your just want to come and join the fun and support a great cause, we can’t think of a better way to spend your Saturday.
