Blues on Broadbeach had been scheduled to take place from May 14-17 this year. However, festival organisers cancelled the event in March amid growing coronavirus concerns.
“Whilst every person involved with this fantastic, free festival would have loved for it to go ahead, the safety of patrons, musicians, crew and wider community comes first,” a representative for the festival explained at the time.
Blues on Broadbeach will return in 2021, with the festival celebrating its 20th anniversary from May 20-23.
