Rolling Loud Australia has officially been indefinitely postponed after weeks of trials and tribulations.

This week, the line-up drop was delayed once again from its 1st of November release date, while before that, changes to the line-up and ticket release were announced. It’s been a trying month for the festival (and fans and punters looking forward to the event), which only announced its return to Australia for the first time since 2019 last month.

Festival organisers announced the postponement on Instagram, writing to fans that due to circumstances outside their control, putting on a festival of the Rolling Loud standard was impossible, so the event would be postponed to a later date.

Rolling Loud will host “a variety of smaller arena shows in early 2024.” You can read the complete statement below.

We appreciate the love from all of our fans who are looking forward to Rolling Loud’s return to Australia. We were hyped to bring the full Rolling Loud experience to our Aussie fans. Sadly, due to circumstances beyond our control, we’re unable to give you a show that lives up to the Rolling Loud standard, so we are left with no choice but to postpone the festival to a later date.

To those of you who have already bought tickets, we appreciate you. All ticket holders will receive an automatic, full refund. If your details have changed, or you have any refund enquiries, please contact your point of purchase.

Australian fans, we still got you: Rolling Loud will still be hosting a variety of smaller arena shows in early 2024.

Rolling Loud Australia was due to hit Sydney’s Giants Stadium on Friday, 26 January, before heading to the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne on Saturday, 27 January.
