Playground Weekender CANCELLED
Article by Poppy Reid of The Music Network
UPDATE: A representative at the Hawkesbury Council office has told TMN the festival “has been cancelled as far as they’re concerned.”
Promoters are currently working with NSW State Emergency Services and police after weather reports the Hawkesbury Rivers are predicted to flood.
A flood watch was undertaken earlier today after warnings there is a 70% chance that from today the Upper Nepean River, Nepean and Hawkesbury River valleys will flood.
Although an official update is yet to be released by the three-day festival, SES have stated the Richmond and Windsor bridges could be closed on Thursday and Friday.
With acts like Boy & Bear, Black Lips and Shapeshifter all set to play the camping event, the news has caused a stir for current ticket-holders. But without any official word TMN advise punters to pack a boat.
Playground Weekender takes place from March 2 – 4 at Del Rio Riverside Resort, Wisemans Ferry
