Oz Kink Fest 2020 - Cancelled


It is with a heavy heart but a look to a Kinky horizon, that we have made the very hard decision to postpone Oz Kink Fest 2020.

We wish to offer our sincerest apologies to our 2020 supporters

As promised June was our deadline for deciding if Oz Kink Fest would proceed in 2020.

We have been keeping up to date and across the impact the pandemic has had, and the legal requirements required to produce events of scale.

While the government are slowly reducing restrictions, for venues the 4 sqm + 1.5 m social distancing remains as well as limit of less than 50 people in a venue (seated) - these limits will increase to 100 people by the end of June

However, nightclubs and events where people are standing are not permitted in any of these changes. Nightclubs can open at the end of June, but all patrons must be seated and adhere to measurement and distancing rules.

For every 50 people in a venue you need a floor area of 10 m x 5 m and they must socially distance

It is likely that the 1.5 m SD will remain indefinitely in Vic

It is also likely that the 4 m sq will remain until the end of 2020 in Vic

Regardless of all of the above kink events / parties are a high transmission risk environment just by nature of the events and that is not a risk we will subject our patrons, staff and selves too.

Oz Kink Fest has been 13 years in the making so to produce it for the sake of putting up an event is not something I am prepared to do.

It is all or nothing, do it right or do not do it.

It is the right decision and an easy decision to make

But it still breaks OUR hearts

It has been hard to come in and write this because it impacts on so many people and all we can do is ask for your support in this difficult period of time.

There has been a huge financial impact which needs to be acknowledged.

The investment in the next festival starts on the last day of the festival the year before.

Artists, presenters, crew, performers are all impacted.

But it is a risk we take every year; this year has just taken it to an extreme level!

We are committed to return and produce an inclusive community event we can be proud of; it just will not be this year.

For now, thank you in advance for your understanding and support and please stay safe!

MM & Team
