BENEE Pulls Out Of Yours & Owls Festival 2021

NZ pop sensation BENEE has unfortunately had to pull out of Yours & Owls‘ forthcoming 2021 festival, as the border between Australia and New Zealand remains closed.

The festival revealed the news in a statement earlier today, while also explaining that Wax Mustang won’t be making the event for the same reason.

However, it’s not all bad news! Angus Stone’s side project Dope Lemon, as well as much-loved rapper and producer Nerve will be stepping in to help out.

In addition, the festival has also had a bit of a location change to a larger venue to help the process of making the event COVID-safe a little bit easier. Instead of happening at its usual location of Wollongong’s Stuart Park, it will now happen at Wollongong’s Dalton Park.

But, there’s even more good news on that front. To help host a COVID-safe event, it has been confirmed today that Yours & Owls will be split into four zones. Each zone will be self-contained, with bars, food vendors, entry, exit and amenities residing in each one.

The festival will also be sporting two revolving stages, alongside large LED screens at the side of each stage to ensure all punters have ideal views. Peep the video below for a visualiser on how that will work.

“This year’s event is probably one of the most important we have staged, it is the first step in establishing that festivals can be run safely in NSW, so we need our patrons’ support to help open the door for a return of mass live music gatherings,” says promoter Ben Tillman in a statement. “We are working hard to make this the best experience possible and can’t wait to share it with you.”

Yours & Owls is going down on Saturday, 17th April and Sunday, 18th April. Check out the updated lineup and all important info below.
