As Victoria’s coronavirus restrictions are slowly eased, the fate of this year’s Queenscliff Music Festival continues to be unknown, but that won’t stop them from spreading some musical joy this month.
Presented by both QMF and Freeza, the festival organisers have just revealed the details of their first live streamed concert with the Pierce Brothers on Monday June 22nd.
Comprising of twin brothers Jack and Pat Pierce, the multi-instrumentalists have taken their unique brand of folk music from busking on the streets of Melbourne to touring the world over the last few years, shaking dance floors and selling out rooms across UK, Europe, Canada, USA and their native Australia. Their irresistible energy and world class live show is simply too good and now you’ll get to experience it from your couch.
Set to go live from 7pm, the event will feature a full stage, professional production, lighting and multi camera performance, streaming directly to your living room via the QMF Youtube Channel.
Alongside the live stream event, the well-loved regional festival have revealed they are still working towards holding their event from November 27 to 29, but will make a final call about the 2020’s event at the end of July at the very latest.
“As of right now, we’re still aiming to have a Festival this November 27-29. Signs seem to be slightly more positive of a return to events this year than they were in April/May. As restrictions ease, and Australia continues to show positive signs, we think there is still hope! We’d ask you to please keep all your fingers and toes crossed and sanitised, over the coming weeks,” the Facebook post read.
“We are realists though, and there is absolutely a long way to go before festivals/events of our size will be permitted and lots of things need to go right between now and then. It also takes a mountain of work to pull together a Festival of our size, so there does come a point in time when we need to make the call either way. That point in time we believe is the end of July at the latest.
“We are hopeful that in the next 7 weeks we’ll have a clearer picture of what might be possible for the end of November, and we will communicate any further updates as soon as we can. I would expect that the next time you hear from me through this channel will be to announce our plans for this year.”
In the event that the festival is cancelled, the organisers have assured that they will be offering full refunds on all tickets purchased immediately. There will also be the option for punters to hold on to their ticket until next year’s festival as well.
