    2020 - Year of Cancelled Rock n Roll Festivals

    After a great start to the year with rock n roll festivals held in Geelong, Rosebud foreshore, Parkes Elvis Festival, Gippsland and even a slim down version in Ballarat, rockers everywhere were eagerly awaiting for more festivals to enjoy the music and dancing that these festivals bring.

    Unfortunately due to severe health risks associated with Covid-19, it has now come to shattering halt with news of cancellations for all the remaining 1950's style themed festivals. Firstly, Coolangatta Cooly Rocks and Wintersun 2 were cancelled followed by Camperdown Rock n Roll Festival. Chromefest in Lake Entrance was next. Even regional rock n roll festivals such as those held in Barham, Horsham and Mulwala were cancelled. It was hoped that GreazeFest in Brisbane might proceed after it was initially postponed from August to November. But it has since been announced last week that it too has been cancelled.

    The decision to cancel all these festivals is totally understandable and even prudent in the circumstance. Covid-19 is a world wide pandemic and Australia is not immune to it. The health and safety of patrons is paramount. It would not be financially sound nor logistically feasible to hold rock n roll festivals with Covid restrictions introduced and international and State borders closed. Lets hope the much anticipated Covid vaccine is found soon and we can return to some normality to resume dancing and attending music & dance festivals next year.

    In the meantime, please stay safe all and lets hope we 'll meet up again somewhere at a rock n roll festival in 2021. In the meantime, I have posted a few videos below to reminisce from different rock n roll festivals from 2019 and early 2020 ......
