Australian events cancelled or rescheduled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

(Updated daily) 100+ major ticketed events, festivals, concerts and performances including rescheduled dates information or where to get a refund.

Updated

With the government's order to cancel or reschedule major events gathering 500 people or more together, many concerts, festivals, theatre performances and events have been cancelled.

Not complying could result in fines of up to $11,000, so understandably, many events have been postponed or cancelled altogether.

We've compiled a list of as many cancelled or postponed events we could find across Australia including information about when the event is rescheduled for, if your original tickets will be valid for the new dates and, if the event is cancelled altogether, where you can go for a refund.
