TweetFacebookBusselton’sSouthbound Festival, which was cancelled in January due to the Waroona Yarloop bushfire, has been rescheduled for December this year.

The three-day music festival, which is in its 12thyear and regularly sees a roster of international artists descend on Sir Stuart Bovell Park every year., was cancelled over concerns for people’s safety, with the fire that devastated the township of Yarloop limiting any travel between areas north of Mandurah and Busselton.

The festival will now run December 27-29, which will be the ongoing date of the festival.

A release from Sunset Events, the promoters of Southbound, said the group is “calling out to their loyal supporters to help to rebuild and continue the festival legacy and its future with these new dates”.

“The inspiration to change the dates came from the fire,” Sunset Events managingdirector Dave Chitty said.

“We were determined to deliver the 2016 event if we could and the City of Busselton supporting that means we can deliver that.

“The change in dates and the impact on how we look at the event as a result of the fire has made us even more determined to deliver an even better Southbound for 2016 and beyond.

“Our resolve to strengthen the event and look at things differently will result in many changes which we look forward to sharing with Southbound fans as the announcements unfold in the coming months.”

Concerts hosted by Sunset Events and other companies in the wake of the bushfire raised more than $150,000 in relief, and a spokesman from the company said they would continue to be involved in the fundraising effort in the lead-up to the festival.

While ticket holders for the January festival have received refunds in full, the company will be opening a special pre-sale window to those who already purchased tickets for the rescheduled event in December.
