The promoters of the 2020 Anthems Festival on March 28 in Commonwealth Park, Canberra have regretfully made the decision to cancel this year’s festival.
“With conflicting information and uncertainty around the corona virus and the announcement by the World Health Organisation of an international pandemic we are seeing a large increase in cancellations of events globally this week.”
“The health and safety of our patrons, artists, and staff is always paramount at any of our events and we believe the right course of action is to not put anyone at unnecessary risk, and also to ensure the festival remains a regular feature on the ACT events calendar.”
“Although we don’t like what’s happening to our live music and arts industry as a result of this panic, to proceed when there is so much uncertainty in the market could affect the viability of the event for the Canberran community in the future.”
All customers who purchased a ticket will receive a refund (including fees) directly to the account used to purchase. At this time we expect all refunds to be processed within 14 days.
If the original card used for purchase has expired or been updated, the refund should still be processed through the account used to purchase. No additional action is needed by the original purchaser. If your credit card used for purchase has been canceled or is now expired, the bank or credit card company will normally reroute the credit amount issued to the current account or card for use.
Please do not send any credit card or account information via email.
Only primary ticket purchasers will receive a refund. We apologize for any inconvenience, but if you did not purchase your ticket directly through Eventbrite, we can not handle refund requests. Please contact the person / party you purchased your ticket through if you did not purchase your ticket directly through the official ticketing site.
We would like to sincerely thank everyone for the fantastic support Anthems has received this year and we can’t wait to see you all in 2021.
An announcement regarding the 2021 event will be made in due course.
Unbreakable Touring and the Anthems Festival team.
