Horizon Festival Cancelled for 2021

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of Horizon Festival 2021.

In the interest of community safety and in light of the recent lockdown and the restrictions in place, Horizon Festival will not proceed in 2021. 

The impact of the lockdown and uncertainty of what may unfold over the coming weeks has made festival delivery extremely challenging.

Featuring hundreds of artists, Horizon Festival 2021 was shaping up to be an incredible 10 days and we are devastated not to be able to present these events, artworks and experiences for our community to enjoy.

Anyone who purchased tickets to Horizon Festival events has been contacted and refunds issued.

A limited number of events delivered by our event partners are still proceeding subject to Qld Health advice and viability based on event restrictions. These events are:

Eumundi School of Rock
The Bunker Spoken Word Series
The Art of Podcasting
Field Trip Symposium
Sunshine Coast Art Prize 2021
Sites of Connection
Reading Between the Lines

While the COVID situation continues to move rapidly, we are exploring ways that audiences may be able to experience Horizon Festival and support our artists over the coming months, with the full-scale festival to return in 2022.

Upcoming reimagined Horizon Festival events include:

Final Call
I Sea U
Kabi Kabi Connections
Homegrown Projects (timing tbc)

See you on the Horizon, soon x
