“We really hoped to come together in October for a fabulous celebration of music and art with our wonderful festival family. We’ve held on to that possibility for as long as we can, however lockdowns in Victoria & New South Wales have shaken our confidence in moving forward,” the festival announced.

“As a young festival, it has been both an exciting journey and a tough few years finding our feet. A more established festival can weather the risks and uncertainty our industry faces at this time a lot more easily.

“As we evolve our offering to create a Covid-safe space for families and artists, we must also ensure the festival is sustainable into the future. We’re currently in dialogue with Government to help support the festival and we’re working hard to keep the ambitious vision of the festival alive.”

The pandemic has been devastating for the livelihoods of music, arts and festival communities in Australia and around the world. To keep things alive, the festival is encouraging punters to hold on to their tickets if they can, which will be valid for the 2022 festival, which will now take place on 28-30 October 2022.

Alternatively, festival-goers can request a refund via Moshtix. All ticket holders will be contacted directly by Moshtix with details of this process.
