Pitch Black 2021 (SOLD OUT)
23 October @ 12:00 - 22:00 AEDT
October 23, 2021.
12:00 – 22:00
Pitch Music & Arts is proud to once again showcase an esteemed host of electronic artists in October. In a world with restrictions, where a multi day camping event is not possible we bring you a temporary inner-city, open air solution for 2021, Pitch Black.
An urban re-creation of the arena which has become synonymous with Pitch Music & Arts will play host to a selection of our very own Australian artists and a special guest.
The multi-level scaffolding stage will be expanded to accommodate all patrons, and transformed into a rectangular steel colosseum to pay homage to its original brutalist form, also featuring a Funktion-One sound system in an iconic Melbourne parkland TBA.
Despite tirelessly working through a COVIDSafe plan with the Department of Health, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone Pitch Black to October 23rd, 2021.
This decision to postpone did not come lightly. After reviewing the ever evolving health and safety restrictions and with the new requirements that have been enforced onto us as a result of the recent outbreak in Melbourne, this would mean that the production quality of the event would unfortunately be compromised considerably. We want to deliver a high quality event and with these restrictions in place, we did not feel it was a product true to the traditional Pitch Music & Arts standard, as well as artists’ and attendees’ expectations.
After carefully fulfilling all immigration/visa requirements and overcoming the shortage of flight availabilities, we sympathise with our artists that are currently in hotel quarantine or have recently completed this for their performance at Pitch Black.
Satellite shows will be announced shortly in support of selected artists given the current climate.
Subsequently, we are working with current artists on the lineup and others to secure a programme equally as exciting for the new October date, ahead of Pitch Music & Arts returning to the Grampians in March 2022.
FOR TICKET HOLDERS:
Your ticket will be valid for the new October date. If you are unable to attend the new date please check your emails for more information on how to request a refund. If you haven’t received an email from Eventbrite, please contact [email protected]
After much deliberation, the decision to create a new one-day event in place of the multi-day camping festival was the only viable option for the team to produce in light of the limitations we now find ourselves in.
We are eager to return to our traditional location at the foot of the Grampians in regional Victoria in future, where we have been since our first year.
HEALTH & SAFETY:
This event will proceed based on government advice in place at the time of the event. Wildland’s priority is to meet the highest level of health and safety protocols throughout the event. COVID-19 safety plans have been prepared and we are in communication with relevant authorities.
Should the event be unable to proceed on the original advertised date, it will be postponed to a later date. Refunds will be available for those who are unable to attend the replacement date.
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which Pitch operates on, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present.
