The extreme weather forecast for the coming Australia Day long weekend has forced Longview’s hand to postpone The Piece Project event planned for Sunday, January 28th.
Longview Vineyard’s, Managing Director, Peter Saturno said “For the safety of our artists, our guests and our staff, for the first time in its eight-year history we have made the unfortunate decision to postpone the event until later in the year. Looking ahead, there is the real possibility of extreme fire danger and other heat related risks and as the event is mostly outdoor event, we have made an informed, very tough choice.”
All tickets were sold through Moshtix and will be fully refunded.
BUT, for all those who were all set to see Norman Jay MBE, he will play an exclusive sunset session at The Pontoon on the Riverbank in Elder Park in the city.
Tickets will be $20 and available at here.
The largest single event in the Adelaide Hills Crush Festival every year, The Piece Project sees 1,200-1,500 people watch a live street art competition, while sampling Longview’s award-winning wine and food with international DJ’s supplying the grooves.
Mr Saturno said, “We were on track for our biggest event yet, with UK DJ’s Norman Jay MBE and Eric Powell as special guests with an all-South Australian line-up of street- artists vying for their art to grace the label of their cult premium Shiraz – ‘The Piece’. We would like to thank all of the faithful Piece Project fans for purchasing tickets to the event, all the artists and suppliers who have been very understanding about the situation.”
Longview’s air-conditioned Tasting Room will be open from 11-5 this Saturday/Sunday for its usual offering of wine tastings and food, with pre-release bottles of ‘The Piece’ Shiraz 2015 be available for purchase as promised.
