Almost Summer festival 2022 announces cancellation due to floods

Due to major flooding in regional Victoria, the highly-anticipated Almost Summer music festival has been cancelled for 2022.

Earlier this week, festival promoters Hear Them Holler broke the devastating news that the Almost Summer music festival has been cancelled for 2022, due to major flooding in the Bendigo region of Victoria.

“It is with much sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of our little festival,” they declared. “With the support of @alwayslivevic and @cityofgreaterbendigo we have decided to cancel the event as a result of major flooding in the region.”

They continue, “we are so sad we don’t get to put on this festival for you all and we know so many of you were as pumped as we were about it. Hopefully this is not the end and we will have a crack at it again in the future.”

This year’s new Almost Summer three-day spring festival was set to take place between November 25 and 27, outside The Captial Theatre in Bendigo, VIC, with a total of 16 bands and a number of DJs locked in for the event. However, due to rising floodwaters in Bendigo, Almost Summer 2022 will no longer be going ahead.

As stated by Jesse Lubitz, Event Producer at Hear Them Holler, “unfortunately, due to flooding, we have regrettably had to cancel the Almost Summer music festival. This is an event that was born out of passion and love for the live music scene with our wonderful partners ALWAYS LIVE and City of Greater Bendigo. We were so excited to bring this special idea to life in Bendigo and are committed to revisiting the concept soon.”

Rescheduled dates are yet to be announced, but festival organisers have confirmed that current ticket holders will be issued a full refund from Gotix. For more information about the festival and feedback, visit here.
