‘Disappointing for us all’ Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival cancels October event

The Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival in New South Wales has been cancelled for this year.

The one-day festival was scheduled to be held on October 17 but the organisers felt the tightening COVID-19 restrictions made it too difficult to proceed.

“Following advice from the NSW government, it seems unlikely that the current restrictions on music festivals will be lifted this year,” festival director Stuart Leslie said.

“This is really disappointing for us all but cancelling the festival is the only decision we could make under the circumstances.”

The 2021 Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival has been scheduled for October 15-17, 2021.
