Ball Park Music have been forced to cancel their appearance at Perth’s Wine Machine festival this weekend, saying their application to “facilitate a quarantined travel hub” has been denied.
The Queensland-native outfit made the announcement today (October 18), just five days out from the event. Taking to social media, they wrote: “Unfortunately despite the best efforts of everyone involved it’s not going to be possible for us to travel to WA for the show. After looking forward to playing this show for almost a year, of course we’re devastated and really sorry to our fans in the West that we won’t be able to perform for you.”
