A Townsville singer has been squatting to prepare his buns for the Best Butt competition at Dirt and Dust this weekend.
Angus Milne from Townsville-based band King Social thinks he’s got what it takes to claim the title of Australia’s Best Butt 2018.
“This is something that I have been dreaming about since I first attended the Dirt n Dust Festival in 2016,” Milne said
“ I remember watching the denim-clad competitors from the audience and I knew there would come a time for me to return to shaking what my mama gave me and claim the title.”
As King Social’s lead man, Milne describes his training regime as basic, attributing 100 daily squats to his peachy butt.
“I’m not really a morning person, so instead each lunchtime I take five minutes out of my day for a quick squatting session,” he said.
“I am fortunate to have good genes, so I have my parents to thank for the natural perk, but it needs some effort to keep it lifted.”
King Social will headline the Saturday night entertainment at the 2018 Julia Creek Dirt n Dust Festival, following Australia’s Best Butt Competition.
Starting out as a way to keep the crowd entertained during a power outage at the 2004 Festival, Australia’s Best Butt has grown in reputation and is now a well-anticipated activity in what is a three-day line-up of events including the triathlon, horse racing, bull riding, bog snorkelling, bush dances and novelty activities.
More than 50 competitors are expected put their best “ass-ets” on display during Friday night’s gruelling heats ahead of the national final on Saturday night.
