Coastal Twist October 2020 is going ahead and we are working to ensure a safe, fun and successful diverse program of all ages, abilities events to suit most anything a Covid Safe post-lockdown world throws out at us (aka we will be making sure presenting our Arts & Culture Festival will not compromise your safety or that of any one else)

It's been challenging this year, but when is it not!  COVID has presented its own challenges & we have adapted ,  re-imagined ourselves and for 2020 we have moved Coastal Twist Festival  out by 4 weeks to Oct 30th - Nov 1st 2020.

(Will be back to Oct long weekend in 2021 )

For now read on as to our 2020 Creating in Chaos Planning:

We are doing things a little differently and being completely flexible with live event audience numbers which may still be restricted due to physical distancing and we want to be very clear we are ensuring government physical-distancing requirements are adhered to with all indoor & outdoor capacities. We will continue to monitor space capacities “in the live” changing world, ensuring we are strictly adhering to Gov Regulations for social distancing as well as enhanced hygiene procedures & digital options.

We continue to closely monitor government directives around social gatherings and community safety, and are working on new Festival plans that accommodate these. Should there be increased health and safety risk, the event won’t proceed.  But until we know that for certain, we’re forging ahead with our plans to deliver something special, something necessary and something we can all celebrate together.

"We cannot wait to bring community together, the locals, visitors, artists, thinkers, doers, punters, lovers, families, kids, pooches, surfers, film buffs, musos, dags, dorks, superstars and the snootsie back into the live of all things vibrant, wonderful, challenging & surprising across the diverse and divine spectrum of humanity.

Our artist submissions are now open!  For everyone else, sign up to our Festival & Tickets update below and keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram.
