Party In The Apocalypse ticketholders better check they are free on December 27 and 28 as the festival has officially moved its dates.
The release sent by organisers stated much had changed since the announcement of PITA such as border opening dates, G2G passes tightening restrictions on artists, and an announcement on the way of changes for festivals and restrictions.
"We've been listening to you, our audience, and have had to be really honest with ourselves - the whole team here at Vibestown are done with the outdated restrictions currently in place for large scale events here in Tassie, they don't align with the rest of the country and it's high time that they changed," a post on Facebook from the organisers said.
As such, the organisers have decided to move the dates from the first weekend in December to after Christmas.
Vibestown artistic director Jesse Higgs said they were looking forward to the new line-up dates.
"[We are] looking to fill a void that Falls and other events have left over this festive season," he said.
"Going to great lengths to pull something together for this NYE, for several logistical reasons, this year became an impossible feat, but the Christmas day holiday and Boxing Day in lieu are perfectly placed public holidays that are going to be an epic way to send off 2021."
PITA has paused ticket sales, but they will be back on sale November 22, along with the announcement of new additions to the line-up.
For those who are unable to make the new dates, refunds will be available from Oztix from November 22.
The statement released also included a note on vaccinations following Premier Peter Gutwein's comments recently about if people want to dance they should get vaccinated.
"Reading the play here, it's looking very much like patrons will now be required to be vaccinated to attend major events, including PITA," the statement said.
The festival will be held at Churchill Park, Launceston.
