They say change is as good as a holiday and within weeks from announcing a reschedule to March due to Queensland border restrictions, the Airwaves Festival commander has instructed her cabin crew to roll the two-day adventure into a one day out of this world escape, set for lift off on Saturday 27 March.
Punters will now get far more bang for their buck, with eleven acts including Sneaky Sound System, The Beautiful Girls and Ash Grunwald performing at the one event. Earning a name for his wild live shows, Gold Coast musician Paces has also been added to the bill and will be pouring out his creative energy on their shuttle deck.
It took months of deliberation and negotiation to secure the festival's initial line-up and with a number of key supporting artists now unable to shift to the new dates due to other commitments, the one day reshuffle made the most sense.
"There are countless amazing acts who could've slot in to fulfil our preferred two day program, but getting the recipe right is a timely process", said Event Director, Cindy Jensen.
The team recommenced negotiations, but with such an outpour of questions from all involved they soon realised the need to provide surety to the already engaged talent and festival fans sooner than later.
"I'm proud of our team for facing the ongoing hurdles with determination and we thank everyone for their ongoing support and understanding"!
The Airwaves team guarantee the killer line-up will make for an unforgettable live music experience and as Sneaky Sound System's first release for the decade is titled, they want everyone to "Tell The World"!
Tickets already purchased are transferrable to the one day show. The second release sale price of $79 + BF won't last long! For more information visit www.airwavesfestival.com.au
