We are working to ensure that our COVID Safe plan adheres to Queensland and Federal Government legislation surrounding mass gatherings and COVID-19 restrictions. The health and safety of our attendees, volunteers and team is our top priority. More information regarding the event’s COVID Safe plan will be available via our website and social media channels. We thank you for your patience and understanding during these uncertain and ever-changing times.

HOW WILL COOLY ROCKS ON BE IMPACTED BY COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS?

However, at this point in time it is difficult for us to give clarity on how restrictions will impact the event, there are a number of factors that will be taken into consideration. We will be guided by the Queensland Government’s COVID-19 restrictions at the time as to how we can deliver the event. If restrictions change any modifications to the programming and format of the event will be announced via social media and our website.

As the festival does not take place until June 2021, restrictions are likely to change between now and then. The health and safety of our attendees, volunteers and team is our top priority and we will continue to monitor COVID-19 regulations to ensure our event complies at all times. Rest assured, we are working hard to bring Cooly Rocks On back and deliver a COVID Safe version in 2021.

WHY SHOULD I BOOK MY FLIGHTS AND/OR ACCOMMODATION NOW FOR 2021 AND NOT WAIT UNTIL CLOSER TO THE FESTIVAL WHEN RESTRICTIONS WILL BE CLEARER?

Ultimately the choice is yours. However, if you are looking at accommodation options, we do recommend securing your preferred accommodation experience sooner rather than later. We also recommend inquiring about the refund/cancellation policy prior to making a booking – policies are becoming more flexible in these uncertain and ever-changing times.

WHAT IF THERE ARE BORDERS STILL CLOSED DUE TO GOVERNMENT RESTRICTIONS, WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE FESTIVAL?

Cooly Rocks On will be guided by the Queensland Government’s COVID-19 regulations. Unfortunately, any border restrictions that are in place at the time of the event will be out of our control. We will keep you informed on any modifications required to the programming and format of the event.

WHAT HAPPENS TO MY BOOKINGS IF THE 2021 FESTIVAL GETS CANCELLED?

We plan to see Cooly Rocks On go ahead as we know and love it in 2021. However, given these uncertain and ever-changing times, it is hard to know what is ahead. We highly recommend enquiring about the refund/cancellation policy prior to making any bookings for this event, as any bookings made are at the discretion of the individual.

WHAT WILL THE FESTIVAL BE LIKE IF IT GOES AHEAD UNDER QUEENSLAND GOVERNMENT RESTRICTIONS AND REGULATIONS?

We plan on delivering the event as you know and love it in 2021. However, in these uncertain and ever-changing times, we will be governed by the Queensland Government’s COVID-19 regulations which will determine how we can deliver the event and ensure a COVID Safe environment.
