Organisers of Queensland’s Savannah in the Round country music festival have today (October 2) revealed the first artists for the inaugural event taking place next year.
Between October 1-3 2021, the Far North Queensland town of Mareeba will play host to the inaugural festival, set to feature the likes of Busby Marou, Fanny Lumsden, Troy Cassar-Daley, Kasey Chambers, Casey Barnes and more. Find the full list below.
The event was announced last year to originally take place in 2020 over the Queen’s Birthday Weekend before the onset of the coronavirus pandemic forced a postponement and the reimagined Savannah Summer Series.
In a press statement, Queensland Tourism Minister Kate Jones remarked that confirmation of Savannah in the Round taking place next year was “great news for Queensland and the Cairns and Great Barrier Reef region as the tourism and events industry continued to face the effects of COVID-19″.
“Savannah in the Round will play an important role in tourism recovery locally, delivering a great boost for the tourism industry when it’s needed most,” Jones said.
“COVID-19 is the biggest challenge our industry has faced and I congratulate the festival organisers for their resilience and commitment to adapt to deliver this year’s Savannah Summer Series and next year’s inaugural Savannah in the Round.
