Tomorrow's Brisbane leg of Full Tilt Festival has been postponed after members of headliners Northlane's touring party tested positive to COVID-19.
Alongside a number of other artists on the bill also testing positive to COVID-19 this morning, event organisers – with 'the heaviest of hearts' – have made the decision to push back the festival till 23 April.
"Despite our best efforts, some of us even isolating over the Christmas and new year period, as of this morning we've had multiple people in our touring party test positive to COVID-19," Northlane's Josh Smith says.
"We feel for the organisers, we feel for the staff, our crew, our fans and the other artists, some of which we know have traveled far and wide to attend.
"We did our absolute best, but we couldn't make magic happen this time. We look forward to seeing you again soon once we've recovered."
Northlane were set to be joined by the likes of In Hearts Wake, Thy Art Is Murder, Frenzal Rhomb, Slowly Slowly, Hellions, Bugs, Press Club, Alpha Wolf, Thornhill, Yours Truly, and more.
"We appreciate all your support and patience during this time and sincerely thank all the staff, agents, managers, artists, venue and crew who have worked tirelessly on this Festival to try and make it happen," event organisers stated.
"The rescheduled date for Full Tilt Brisbane is Saturday 23 April with all tickets remaining valid. We encourage everyone to hang on to your tickets and we cannot wait to see you all in the pit!"
Full Tilt Festival's Brisbane leg will take place at Eatons Hill Hotel 23 April.
