Just as South Australia was gearing up for a sizzling summer of music festivals, news that the iconic Wine Machine has been postponed broke this afternoon.
Previously set to be held in almost a fortnight on December 11, organizers announced today that they, unfortunately, had to postpone the much-loved festival till March 13, 2022.
“Despite enormous and tireless efforts in recent weeks from the whole team and all stakeholders to get [the event] approvals to a level that you would deem acceptable, we have been told that no event will be given such permissions until next year,” wrote organizers on Facebook this afternoon.
“We know how painful the current situation is for all South Australians.”
Organisers continued to state that while they have held sit-down pod-style events across the past two years, they know the public do not want that Wine Machine. Long seen as the event that kicks of festival season, Wine Machine says they want to deliver the festival the way South Australians know and love so much.
“We are…left with no option but to postpone the event into the New Year to a time when we know we will be able to deliver the event you’ve been waiting so long for,” continued organisers.
Tickets for the December 11 event will automatically move to the new March 13 2022, which will be the long weekend public holiday Sunday, providing a perfect excuse for punters to go extra hard with a well-deserved Monday off.
For those unable to attend Wine Machine on the new date, ticket-holders will be refunded. If you’re seeking a refund for the festival, you must email [email protected] by December 3 to be eligible.
“In exchange for your patience and understanding we promise to deliver the biggest and best event to date,” continued Wine Machine organisers.
“We’re exceptionally proud of Wine Machine McLaren Vale – it’s our favourite event in the entire country and we love helping create those moments you’ll cherish forever.”
The epic line-up of Spacey Jane, Art Vs Science, Stace Cadet, Masked Wolf and Sumner Mell Hall will take the stage at Serafino Wines in March, stunning crowds with their electric and vibrant performances.
