Southbound Music Festival Cancelled Due To Fires




Perth's popular music festival Southbound has just been cancelled due to the fire situation in the festivals surrounding areas. According to the just issued press release, "The fire, which started Wednesday afternoon and reached emergency status during the night and into Thursday morning, has left us with no time to relocate prior to gates opening tomorrow".

"The only alternate route given both main highways are closed is now compromised. The alternative access to the event communicated earlier today is now only open for essential travel. As of news recently to hand festival patrons are now not able to use this road leaving us with no access to the festival site."

Southbound director, David Chitty has made the following statement:
“Everyone on site is absolutely devastated as we were working so hard to bring the best Southbound yet. Please understand at this time we will be extremely busy dealing with the cancellation and our thoughts are with those in danger due to the nearby fire.”

Southbound patrons will receive a full refund on tickets purchased via official channels. Information regarding ticket refunds will be released on Wednesday the 13th of January.
