Longview Vineyard‘s much anticipated Crush Festival event, The Piece Project, has been cancelled due to a potentially catastrophic heat wave hitting Adelaide and the hills this weekend. Longview and six other wineries have had to make the unfortunate decision to pull the plug on their Crush Fest involvement as a matter of safety for festival-goers.
Longview Vineyard’s, Managing Director, Peter Saturno said: “For the safety of our artists, our guests and our staff, for the first time in its eight-year history we have made the unfortunate decision to postpone the event until later in the year.”
“Looking ahead, there is the real possibility of extreme fire danger and other heat related risks and as the event is mostly outdoor event, we have made an informed, very tough choice.”
However, the party doesn’t stop there. British DJ Norman Jay MBE, who was scheduled to play at the Longview Crush event, is still keen to kick on and will be spinning tunes riverside at The Pontoon instead. This exclusive session will run from 5PM on Sunday the 28th of January (this weekend).
Mr Saturno said: “We were on track for our biggest event yet, with UK DJ’s Norman Jay MBE and Eric Powell as special guests with an all-South Australian line-up of street- artists vying for their art to grace the label of their cult premium Shiraz – ‘The Piece’.”
“We would like to thank all of the faithful Piece Project fans for purchasing tickets to the event, all the artists and suppliers who have been very understanding about the situation.”
