Beloved NSW festival, Mullum Music Festival, has today announced it will not be going ahead in 2020.

“We’re a very small team with families and numerous other commitments so we’ve decided to catch our breath for 2020,” Festival Director Glenn Wright said in a statement this morning. 

The festival will return in 2021.

“We look forward to bringing Mullum Music Festival back to our wonderful community in 2021," Wright shared.

Organisers have confirmed their popular Mother's Day Tree Planting mini festival will return in May and they will continue to present gigs throughout the year. 

Mullum Music Festival has run for the past 12 years in Mullumbimby during November. It has made a name for itself with diverse programming, including acts like Tash Sultana, Mojo Juju, Marlon Williams, The Teskey Brothers and Husky, and a friendly, inclusive atmosphere. 

Dates for the 2021 iteration will be revealed at a later stage. 

Bello Winter Music, Mullum’s sister festival in the nearby town of Bellingen, will go ahead in July before it too takes a break to allow the Bellingen Memorial Hall to undergo renovations.
