Red Hot Summer Tour festival in Kiama postponed due to dangerous winds

The Red Hot Summer Tour taking place in Kiama on Saturday has had to be postponed due to dangerous winds, organisers said.

About 5000 festival-goers were set to descend on Kiama Showground for the tour, with performances by classic Australian acts including Hunters & Collectors, James Reyne, The Living End, Killing Heidi, The Angels, Baby Animals and Boom Crash Opera.

A cancellation announcement was made on the Red Hot Summer Tour’s official Facebook page about 10.30am.

“Due to severe on site winds causing site and infrastructure damage, plus continues gale force warnings for the remainder of the day, the risk factors for patrons and staff are extreme and as such we cannot proceed with today’s event,” the post read.

“Winds on the site are continuing to gust at over 100km per hour.”

The date for the concert has been rescheduled to October 17.

All current tickets are valid for the new date. If you are unable to attend the new date please contact your point of purchase for a full refund.
