REWIND FESTIVAL moves to HORDERN PAVILION


 

The highly anticipated Rewind 80s Festival will now make its Australian debut in Sydney, at the Hordern Pavilion on October 29th and 30th it was announced today.


Originally scheduled to be staged at the Blue Scope Fields in Kembla Grange, near Wollongong as a two day camping festival, it was deduced that the infrastructure at the current venue would no longer be suitable  given the current climatic conditions.  Heavy rains have been forecast across the region over the next few weeks, and therefore the decision was made by the promoter to move the Festival to an indoor city location. 


Said Shane Sanderson, Rewind Festival Director, “We originally chose the location for its beauty and versatility, believing the weather would complement an outdoor festival”.


“However, as we have drawn closer to the date, it looks like heavy rains are likely to cause major problems so we had to make a decision.  This is extremely unfortunate as we have worked closely with Wollongong City Council and Emergency Authorities to address a range of safety concerns but these ultimately added significant time and cost to the event. With a substantial percentage of ticket holders coming from Sydney, I feel confident that moving the Rewind Festival to Sydney Hordern Pavilion is going to please most and ensure a successful event.”


“We sincerely apologize to the people who wanted to experience the Rewind Festival in all it’s outdoor glory, unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control this will now not be possible and we have been left with a very difficult decision to either not proceed at all which would be a great loss for everyone or find another venue at short notice and the Hordern Pavilion has kindly agreed to house the event allowing us to put the show on.”  Mr Sanderson said.


Camping tickets for the festival will be refunded, please contact Moshtix for further details.

Obviously due to the smaller venue capacity than that of an outdoor festival, there has had to be some re-structuring of the line up for a more condensed, more fun and more convenient indoor 80’s party.
