The 2021 PMF


After long and careful thought, the organising committee for the Paynesville Music Festival has taken the tough decision to not go ahead with the festival in February 2021.

We thank those people who volunteered to help out, but the COVID-Safe requirements are too hard, and we don’t have the people and resources to fence public spaces, check people in, and make them socially distance while dancing the tango!

We don't take this decision lightly as we know how treasured our festival is by locals, visitors and musicians.

INSTEAD... there will still be a weekend of live music in local venues in the last weekend of February, 26th-28th 2021. Just no large public outdoor performances.

AND... we will run a new series of planned and impromptu musical performances throughout the whole year, around the streets, on Bernie’s floating tin shed and in special ticketed indoor events.

We will have A WHOLE YEAR of music in Paynesville in 2021 to keep us singing and dancing!

THEN...we plan to make the Paynesville Music Festival new and exciting and the BEST EVER in 2022.
