The beloved festival has made the difficult decision.
Queenscliff Music Festival (QMF) has long been a significant fixture of the festival calendar – one that has filled a beautiful part of Victoria with joy and creativity for over two decades.
The 24th iteration of the festival was scheduled to take place from November 27 – 29 this year but they’ve just made the difficult decision to postpone the event until November 26 – 28, 2021 as a result of the disruptions caused by COVID-19.
QMF noted three considerations that led to the festival’s postponement: The health and safety of all concerned, including the festival attendees, staff, artists and more; the uncertainty surrounding what the landscape will look like come November, and the ability to provide a festival experience for all attendees that the festival itself can pride itself on.
All 2020 ticketholders will be contacted individually regarding the transfer and refund process. Already-purchased tickets will remain valid until 2021, while refunds will also be available for festival-goers.
Queenscliff Music Festival are currently working on a Plan B option that could see a revised event take place this year. It will all hinge on the nature of the restrictions at that given time.
