Airwaves Festival confirms January event, due to feature Sneaky Sound System, Boo Seeka, The Beautiful Girls, Ash Grunwald plus stacks more will be rescheduled.
Just as organisers announced a sell out of first release event tickets, they were handed a huge blow with the announcement that Queensland border restrictions will remain in place until at least the 31st January.
The two day event was set to blast off on the Sunshine Coast over the Australia Day weekend, but given the billed headliners reside in Sydney organisers were left with no choice but to halt their scheduled outer space mission.
Event Director, Cindy Jensen had taken a business-as-usual approach until the news broke and anticipated a capacity crowd.
“It’s certainly not something that’s easy to digest, especially given the cancellation of our big sister event, Buskers by the Lake last October and the third night of Airwaves – The Drive-In Music Festival back in July.”
“But as promoters we feel a natural responsibility to continue to support our industry, fans and partners and we refuse to be defeated by Covid!”
Punters who were stuck for fancy dress ideas now have a few more months to work on their galactic get-up for the event, with the 27th and 28th March locked in as the new launch date. The festival is to include over fifty artists and organisers hope to feature all of the same acts that were originally slated. They are also hopeful that anyone who bought a ticket will give their full support and transfer to the new date, providing them with confidence during this difficult period so they can continue working on producing the best festival experience possible.
