The Scenic Rim’s newest music festival has been postponed but organisers are urging ticket holders to hold their tickets until the new date.

The boutique live music event has shifted from February to April to ensure the safety of artists, punters and event staff during this challenging period.

Originally set to take place on Saturday 12 February, the new event from the crew behind Queensland Music Trails has now set its sights on Saturday 30 April as the new date, with the safety of staff, artists, punters and the wider music community in mind.

“We imagine The Long Sunset as a fun, safe, and relaxed live music experience in one of Queensland’s most evocative locations – The Scenic Rim.” 

“This is the promise we made when tickets went on sale, and it’s one we remain committed to delivering on,” said QMF CEO Joel Edmondson.

“We sincerely hope that ticket holders can attend on 30 April and share in a day to remember.”

“We greatly appreciate the public’s support of the many artists and arts workers that are persisting through very challenging conditions to keep our live music culture alive.”

Mayor of Scenic Rim Regional Council Cr Greg Christensen says having to move the event is disappointing, but the right decision under the circumstances to keep everyone safe.

“We look forward to welcoming visitors to our beautiful region in April and suggest people take some time to plan their visit and consider adding a day or two either side to explore and experience all we have to offer in the Scenic Rim.”

Festival organisers strongly encourage ticket holders to retain their tickets, which will be automatically valid for the new dates.

Headlined by Angus & Julia Stone, Ball Park Music, and Babe Rainbow,  The Long Sunset also features Queensland singer-songwriters Jack Gray, Clea, Asha Jefferies, Sofia Isella, and local DJ duo Cheek2Cheek.

Unfortunately, due to the change in date, Hatchie is no longer available to perform.

The inaugural event will be a day of fantastic live music and local food, produce and crafts in Artisan Alley, giving visitors a taste of this vibrant region. 

Organisers say ticket sales have been strong  and a limited number of tickets are still available for sale.

Current ticket holders will receive an email from Moshtix detailing their options.

Tickets for The Long Sunset are automatically valid for the new date, and buyers do not need to take any further action. 

Refunds will be available via Moshtix for those who cannot attend the new date.
