Has Another Music Festival Been Axed?

9 February 2016 | 4:18 pm | Neil Griffiths

Say it ain't so.

Yet another music festival looks to be in jeopardy after a venue scheduled to host the Secret Valley event this month has confirmed to theMusic that it will no longer be held at that location, even though tickets are still currently on sale.

Set to take place at Melbourne's Yarra Valley Estate and Calais Estate in New South Wales between 20-21 February, a representative from Yarra Valley Estate confirmed that the festival will no longer take place at the venue and that a revised location is yet to be announced. 

Similarly, a representative from Calais Estate has also told theMusic that they have been informed there may be changes to these shows as well, even though, yet again, tickets are still on sale.

Acts including Brand New Heavies, Leftfield, Thandi Phoenix, Jones Jnr, Oka and Eddie Mac have been announced on the bill.

Leftfield's management has confirmed that the band will still head to the country regardless if the festival is cancelled or not, with shows to be announced later tonight in Sydney and Melbourne, as well in support of the already-announced Perth Festival.

The Music is still seeking further comment from Secret Valley promoters.

The news comes on the back of Perth-based event Boulevard Tour came under fire from artists scheduled on the bill including Nelly and T-Pain, who claimed they were never attached to the festival

Meanwhile fellow Melbourne festival The Bureau was inexplicably called off just days before it was to take place last December.
