With the Chair debate temporarily sidelined. it's now time to focus on the rain, the current conditions we are experiencing may mean that Easter will be either
AAA) Mainly dry
BBB) Mainly wet
CCC) Cancelled or moved to a dozen (or raft of) alternate venues like the ill-fated Playground Weekender

Quote:
2nd March 2012 – Following the cancellation of Australia’s best-loved boutique festival, the Playground Weekender, set to be held at the Del Rio Riverside Resort in Wisemans Ferry this weekend, the promoters have announced a raft of alternative venues across Sydney will now host the high profile international and local artists booked to perform.


Tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday, ticketholders will be able to salvage their celebrations as the Metro Theatre, Bondi’s Beach Road Hotel and The Roundhouse host a jam packed itinerary of eclectic artists. The three-day festival was cancelled on advice of the State Emergency Services and NSW Police in relation to the flood risks presented by the dangerous levels of the Warragamba Dam.

Andy Rigby, Playground Weekender Promoter comments:
“With the event being cancelled less than 36 hours before it was due to start, we wanted to ensure all those who had spent a year looking forward to the best weekend of the year, could still enjoy some of the exciting entertainment planned. The artists are here, the people are here, so the idea was to put on the best party humanly possible within the incredibly short time frame. We tried to get an outdoor space but the weather just kept on getting worse so we’ve had to go indoors. We were absolutely overwhelmed by the support of our loyal following who return each year because of the award-winning crowd and atmosphere and venues in the city who rallied together to help us through what has been an extremely tough time. The show must go on!”
