Our two international headline acts can’t be here due to the current crisis. Our interstate acts have cancelled due to their unease about travelling and other planned gigs while here have been put on hold. Some venues and local bands have pulled out too.
After much deliberation, we are left with no alternative but to postpone the St Kilda Blues Festival 2020 until further notice. We are hoping to reschedule later in the year. However, St Kilda is still open for business. Rents and wages have to be paid. Artists still need gigs as that is their only income in a lot of cases.
We are mindful of government directives regarding social gatherings, and all the remaining venues comply with current regulations in respect to patron numbers. Venues will still trade and they will still provide entertainment. Therefore, we will liaise with venues and artists to ascertain which gigs will go ahead regardless. We will post updated information when we can. Down at the crossroads!
