STATE Member for Lismore Janelle Saffin supports the postponement of Bluesfest 2021 for public health reasons, but urges lovers of the iconic blues and roots festival to hold on to their tickets.
“I have been in touch with NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard and fully understand the NSW Government’s decision under enhanced COVID-safe measures in Byron Shire, Ballina Shire, Lismore City and Tweed Shire local government areas,” Ms Saffin said.
“Bluesfest founder and director Peter Noble OAM must be extremely disappointed about the need to postpone at the last minute, but he is the ultimate professional in what he does.
“This is a very fluid situation and I know the vast majority of Northern Rivers residents will be following the Government’s new rules over the Easter break in order to keep themselves, their loved ones and the wider community COVID-safe.”
