Fans of the ill-fated hip hop festival Supafest can now proceed with cautious optimism after organisers revealed on Facebook that they have locked in dates for the event’s 2013 return.
Much like it has in previous years, the fourth instalment of Supafest will kick off in April. Perth will be the maiden event, with Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane to follow in that order, with each event taking place the day after the previous one.
After a clusterfuck of a 2012, the future of the festival looked doubtful, a notion lent credibility by the fact that the brand and its booking agency had been put into the hands of receivers in an attempt to manage their crippling debt, said to be in the millions.
Nothing has been mentioned yet in regards to venues or line-up, other than the suggestions made by those who responded to the post, but with a deadline of April, more information is sure to come soon and we are sure to be all over it.
The announced dates are below.
Supafest 2013 – Festival Dates
Perth – Thursday, 25th April
Sydney – Saturday, 26th April
Melbourne – Sunday, 27th April
Brisbane – Monday, 28th April
