SOUTHERN CROSS SOLOISTS PRESENTS THE 19th
DUE TO COVID-19 THE 19th BANGALOW MUSIC FESTIVAL 2021 IS CANCELLED, RESCHEDULED FOR
AUGUST 11–14 2022.
A message from Artistic Director Tania Frazer:
It is with a heavy heart that we regret to inform our subscribers that Southern Cross Soloists has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Bangalow Music Festival, scheduled to take place in Northern NSW from August 12th to 15th, 2021.
Although we have been working tirelessly all year, since last year's postponement, to present a rich and exciting festival program, we are afraid due to the current increasing COVID-19 travel and lockdown restrictions we are now facing, many of our musicians, audience and festival staff are unable to travel from interstate which has severely impacted our ability to deliver the festival successfully.
This decision was also essential in order to prioritise the safety of our valued audiences who are such a vital part of the success of the festival each year, along with the Northern NSW communities who provide such amazing support to the festival. We are extremely grateful to these communities and stakeholders and we are very disappointed to have to cancel another edition of our festival.
All ticket holders have now been notified via the contact details provided at the time of their booking. We understand this news comes as a disappointment to all our SXS friends and supporters who were planning to attend this year's festival.
Currently we are exploring options for presenting some small section of the festival program in Brisbane over the same weekend, both live and streamed. We will also be exploring opportunities to perform in Bangalow later this year for the Northern NSW communities.
We will keep you informed of all these events as soon as they are confirmed. If you are interested to attend or stream any of the proposed upcoming Brisbane performances, details of how to do that will be available in the coming weeks.
The Festival dates for 2022 are scheduled for August 11-14.
We sincerely thank you for your support and hope to see you at our future events.
Best wishes and stay well and safe,
Tania Frazer – Artistic Director
