John Butler Owed $95,000 By Peats Ridge Festival

Written by Mike Hohnen on January 31, 2013

Many of us are still rocking the tans we got at Peats Ridge Festival 2012/2013 and already looking forward to the next one, but we might need to pump the brakes on those plans. TheMusic.com.au have released details sent through to those owed money by organisers, revealing a massive $1.2 million debt spread across more than 23 creditors, TheMusic.com.au being one of them.

A notice sent through by liquidators Jirsch Sutherland has listed companies from all spheres of the industry, including the events booking agent Elastic Entertainment, several touring agencies, and a serious percentage of the bands who performed, including The Falls, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Fanny Lumsden & the Thrillseekers, Cass Eager & The Velvet Rope and Lolo Lavina.

The notice also stated that the festival only had $140,000 to its name on the books, and that the liquidation firm would be seeking $80,000 of that for its services. That leaves just $60,000 to be spread between all creditors.

Festival organiser Matt Grant has commented that they are currently looking for a new investor to help with the costs but it will need to happen fast. According to Jirsch Sutherland, it is not yet know how much ticketing revenue is still to be counted.

When Sufjan Stevens announced his intention to produce albums based on all 50 states of the US – beginning with the release of Michigan in 2003, followed by the much acclaimed Illinois in 2005 – it was seen as eager and not to mention impossibly ambitious.
