The following statement has been released by organisers of Scene & Heard Festival:
Scene & Heard and its stakeholders are following the consultation advice we have had with the Local, State and National authorities and we’re sorry to announce today that we must sadly confirm the need to reschedule the NSW event planned for February.
The new festival date will be Sunday, Nov 7, 2021 – Wickham Park Newcastle (NSW)
Due to State Government and current standing Federal Government Public Health Orders regarding COVID-19, multi-stage mass music gathering events are not permissible in ‘true’ festival format just yet.
Coupled with planning timelines, this has made it impossible for us to deliver the well-loved Scene & Heard festival format by February – one that would both satisfy current government compliance, and more importantly give you the full Scene & Heard experience you’ve come to love. We understand the inconvenience this has caused everyone involved.
Good news is the Scene & Heard lineup will remain the same for Nov 7th 2021 If you can’t make the new date, a refund window is open now: forms.oztix.com.au/RefundRequest/ [Cut-off date and time for re-fund tickets: January 18th 5pm local time]. However please consider holding on to your ticket to support live music.
After the refund window closes, all ticket holders will receive a fresh Scene & Heard ticket with the new event details.
You can also request a name change on your ticket at any time through OzTix.
