SYDNEY (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Australia has experienced a music casualty. The 2010 Homebake festival has been cancelled.
The following statement was issued on the Homebake homepage:
"We've decided to go against the grain and as such – after much deliberation (& some procrastination) – we here at Homebake festival HQ have decided to take a break and postpone Homebake Music, Film & Arts Festival for this year only, 2010.
As we've not been able to have the 'planets align' to a standard we feel appropriate to the long standing reputation of Australia's largest 'locals only' event, we'd rather focus on a positive future and are instead planning for a unique return version of Homebake to take place during the first week of December 2011.
The intention is for Homebake to return proverbially 'bigger and better' than ever, incorporating even more facets of the antipodean arts industries & with special incentives in place for the few generations of thousands of loyal Homebake devotees whom have attended over the past 15 years.
We ask you to stay tuned for now as we commence preparations for what will be the 16th Edition – Homebake Music, Film & Arts Festival, 2011." –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
