TBMF 2021 will be postponed

Music festival 2021 postponed to later in the year.
Last year in mid-March, as we were poised to launch TBMF 2020, the pandemic hit Australia about one week before the festival, and we made the difficult decision to cancel the event.

Since then we have been working on ways to present a festival in 2021, considering these factors we have to balance:

  • Providing an entertaining, fun and inclusive music festival experience for all participants
  • Helping the musicians, volunteers, and community to stay safe
  • Supporting and coordinating with local traders in The Basin
  • Compliance with government guidelines and rules
  • Planning and preparing for all significant risks
  • Achieve these within a feasible budget, which is challenging under these high-risk circumstances.

We have had many meetings, emails, phone calls and Zoom sessions, and have been consulting closely with Knox City Council and experts.

Unfortunately at this stage we are not able to provide a cost-effective and compliant event for all involved. The result is that we have come to a logical decision to postpone the 2021 festival to a weekend later in the year. This will allow more time for planning, permits, and fundraising. We also have some hopeful anticipation that some of the risk factors may be lower.

We are now projecting the festival weekend to happen in October or November 2021.

Stay safe and rock on,
