Music in the Vines forced to postpone 2021 event

MACARTHUR’S Music in the Vines won’t look the same in 2021, with COVID-19 restrictions forcing a change in plans.

The festival’s committee voted recently to scrap its usual event on the first weekend in March, with the possibility of holding the event later in the year.

Music in the Vines president, Pieter Badenhorst said the uncertainty around COVID-19 restrictions meant the committee couldn’t commit to a ‘normal’ event next year.

“We’ve had to postpone because of the uncertainty around the restrictions and what they’ll be on the first weekend in March when we normally hold Music in the Vines.

“We would usually book our musicians in August and September, but we just can’t do that when we don’t have that 100 per cent certainty whether we can go ahead or not.”
