This year’s Coastal Twist arts and culture festival has been cancelled.
“It is with deep regret that we at Coastal Twist have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the planned 2020 Coastal Twist Festival,” said organiser Mr Juan Iocco of the Naughty Noodle Fun Haus.
“In recent days, our operating environment has been further negatively impacted by increased Covid-19 uncertainty.
“The NSW Government has tightened its restrictions once again and this healthcare and economic crisis continues to unfold.
“This is not the future that any of us hoped to confront, but our main focus remains the well-being of our participants, volunteers, artists, partners and everyone involved in the festival.”
The inaugural Coastal Twist festival was held in 2019 with organisers estimating 7000 people attending three days of events, “over four times what was originally predicted”.
Planning for a 2021 festival to be held on October 1-4 is now underway.
