This isn’t the announcement we had planned this week.
For the past 19 years, we have had the joy of delivering WAs longest running dance music event. This year, our 20th, the Chief Health Officer has determined our event cannot proceed in its current format.
As most of you will know, a review into WA events was recently conducted. As a result, the rules changed which meant we had to submit our event to Department of Health WA for approval.
We prepared a full and comprehensive COVID Event Plan and, despite some positive feedback from the Department, we have now been informed by the Chief Health Officer that Breakfest would not be approved:
– the performance areas act as a focal point, drawing crowds in close proximity, reducing the ability for patrons to practice physical distancing
– alcohol consumption over an extended period of time leads to non-compliance of patrons with risk mitigation strategies.”
All that space, an already reduced capacity and significant COVID measures weren’t enough.
The only way the event would have been able to proceed was:
– reduction to 1 stage
– 1500 people
– restrictions on the dancefloor
– shorter event duration and restricted service of alcohol
We do want to thank Department of Health WA and the Chief Health Officer for allowing us the opportunity to revise the event format, however these conditions are simply unacceptable for us to deliver the event you have come to know and love for the past 19 years.
All tickets will be refunded via Moshtix.
BUT – because we don’t know any other way to spend Boxing Day, we are working on an event with a heap of familiar names and we really want you to join us.
Announced and on sale this Thursday.
Thank you for your support x
