Breaking: Multiple Perth Music Festivals set to go ahead this summer are being pushed back well into 2021.

State government rules that have been newly implemented mean festival organisers have had to cancel or postpone events slated for the coming months.

Major Northbridge activation ‘Factory Summer Festival’ events have been delayed until at least March 2021. The ABC reports all COVID safe plans were rejected.

As we reported last week, the new rules have made regulating large events including single focus stages and dance floors extremely difficult.

The new rules stipulate that events with dance-floors, single focus stages and alcohol service were at ‘high risk’ and may not be approved.

From tonight WA is easing its hard border with the rest of the nation. Only people from NSW and Vic will need to self-quarantine.
