Another one bites the dust.
Set to take place from Friday 27 – Sunday 29 March 2020, and play host to Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Sheer Mag (US), Angie McMahon, Dyson Stringer Cloher, Elizabeth, Surprise Chef and the ‘forever young’, Youth Group, Meadow 2020 has been cancelled as a result of the coronavirus.
“We are more than devastated but must respect the decision and direction of the Victorian State Government issued in this morning’s State Of Emergency declaration. We understand these measures are in the best interest of public health and safety,” a statement from festival director Cameron Wade reads.
“2020 has been an emotional rollercoaster that is struggling to find its way back up. Many small businesses in country areas have been battered by the impact of bushfires, a downturn in discretionary spending nationwide and now an insurmountable pandemic. A year of work. All our careful curation and planning to create something that brings joy to so many of our friends, family and punters has now upsettingly come unstuck.
“All things that go down, must eventually come up. Surely.
“We watched the resilience of our punters dancing on through three days of unrelenting rainfall during our 2019 festival. It’s our sincere hope that we’re able to embody some of this character over the coming months. If it is possible to weather this storm, we will do everything in our power to return in 2021.”
Information in regards to refunds will be announcemed shortly so keep an eye on your emails if you purchased a ticket to the festival.
Until then, wash your hands, and look after yourselves and others.
