Playground Weekender 2012 Announce Alternative Events (This Weekend)

Written by Brayden Darke on March 2, 2012

After the cancellation of this weekend’s Playground Weekender 2012 Festival, organisers have announced the alternative options for those who still want to see the many bands that were booked for this year’s event.

Tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday, ticketholders will be able to salvage their celebrations as the Metro Theatre, Bondi’s Beach Road Hotel and The Roundhouse host a jam-packed itinerary of eclectic artists.

Ticketholders will be able to access all of the events taking place completely free of charge AND will be able to retain their ticket to claim a refund as per the terms and conditions of purchase. Refund options are currently being explored and the process of how to claim will be confirmed next week. Alternatively, people are invited to keep hold of their tickets, which will be valid for Playground Weekender 2013.

To ease travel across the city in the rain, the promoters are also putting on buses to transport people between the Beach Road Hotel and The Metro on Saturday.
