The Basin Music Festival 2020 *** CANCELLED ***

We have cancelled The Basin Music Festival for 2020 to help minimise the rate of spread of coronavirus.

We made this decision in accordance with recommendations from public health professionals as well as local, state and national governments. Australia has managed the rate of infection fairly well, and restrictions on human social activites are being eased. However...

It had been initially thought that the virus did not seem to pose a serious problem for the young and people in good health, but can be serious or even fatal for the elderly, and people with poor health or respiratory issues. As the crisis has progressed, so has the experience and research. The COVID-19 disease (also known as SARS-CoV-2) causes a range of serious complications that affect persons of all ages.

With this in mind, we also cancelled this year's Youth Stage event, which was scheduled for July 2020. 

The next events we expect to produce for our community are the monthly concerts in the park, The Basin Summer Concert Series. On one Saturday afternoon per month, starting in November (but maybe October!), the setting is outdoors, allowing the audience to maintain physical (but not social, definitely not musical) distance.

We will work within the rules for public performances and gatherings. Guests should plan and equip themselves for responsible and safe behaviour at the park. We also encourage you to bring your commerce to the local shops at The Basin Triangle. They need our support.

The summer concert series is a taste of what we will have at The Basin Music Festival 2021, when we will be back, BIGGER & BETTER.

Keep well,
The Basin Music Festival Committee
