Public Health Concerns - Festival Update 3.00 pm Friday 13 March 2020
Festival goers, musicians and interested parties.
A further update from our previous post. We want to inform you that the Aireys Inlet Open Mic Music Festival is proceeding.
We are taking sensible measures that are within our control to minimise any COVID-19 issues.
Most of the venues are in outdoor or semi outdoor settings. The Eagles Nest Gallery stage has been cancelled due to the small enclosed space.
We have now been advised that gatherings of 500 or more have been advised to cancel.
The opportunities for crowds to exceed 500 is at the Aireys Pub, in which they will have tight security managing the number of patrons in the venue.
The Aireys Pub will remain open unless or until the government recommends hospitality venues to do otherwise. They are constantly on updates and will advise if anything changes.
The Special Mystery Guest act has advised they are still coming.
A reminder to musicians (you have already been emailed) to bring your own microphones if you have them. We will have spray sanitiser available at each venue to spray mics and stands between acts.
Ultimately whether you are a festival goer or musician, if you are unwell please do not attend the festival.
If you are coming, please minimise person contact.
We will advise immediately if there are any further changes to the festival via festival and Aireys Pub social media.
