Strange Universe at The Powerstation on Friday 1st May 2020 has been cancelled.
In unfortunate news, DIIV have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel - instead of postpone - their upcoming Australian and New Zealand tours. The band, and us, and our friends in Australia, tried our best to make this happen for later in the year, but unfortunately the future of international tours is entirely uncertain due to Covid-19, and the risks in attempting to forge ahead with this were just far too great.
As such, Banished Music and Strange News have decided to cancel Strange Universe #001, and revisit the concept when the dust has settled.
We were so excited to bring you these incredible line-ups, and want to thank Cut Off Your Hands, Wax Chattels, Imugi 이무기, Womb, and DJ Mealy Worm for jumping on board. We, Reuben Bonner from Banished, and Matthew Crawley from Strange News, are still dreaming big, and when the time is right, you can be sure Strange Universe will ride again, with a cool leather jacket and flames down the side.
If you are in a position to donate some of the proceeds from your refund to organisers to help offset tour losses we have a great initiative.
To do this, please go and purchase raffle tickets from Banished 4 Life! to win lifetime supply of gig tickets!
We have a special ticket set up there for proceeds going towards Strange Universe cancellation. By buying one (or more) of these, you can support us to stay in the fight to bring live music to town, but also go in the draw to win a double pass to all Banished Music and/or Strange News promoted for the rest of time!
Stay safe friends, and see you soon
Banished Music & Strange News
