1999 überlegten die Bewohner einer kleinen Stadt namens Deniliquin im Südwesten von Australien, wie sie den Tourismus in ihrer Gegend ankurbeln könnten. Ihre Antwort: ein Festival, das die beiden Hauptzutaten des Landlebens – Musik und Autos – verbindet. Das war die Geburtsstunde der Deni Ute Festivals. Verdünnt wird das Ganze jeweils mit reichlich Alkohol. Und guter Laune.
