While for many the ANZAC Day long weekend lockdown was largely a minor inconvenience, for some it was a devastating slap in the face after months and months of hard work and planning to put on large scale events for the people of Perth. In this instance we’re talking about Palace Social Club, which was set to take place over four days at Mounts Bay Sailing Club.
With the event space set up and ready to roll for the weekend, the rug was pulled out from underneath everyone’s feet when the snap lockdown was announced just two hours before commencement. And while two of those four shows have already been refunded, the final two shows have banded together to try and salvage the party, announcing a new joint event on Saturday 22 May at Claremont Showground’s Centenary & Gardens event space and featuring returning headliners Set Mo (SYD).
Both parties – Palace Social Club and Voyage – will be bringing the same vibes and transforming the garden into a fun-filled playground full of unique activations and festival-sized production across two big stages.
The organisers are asking people who have tickets to the original shows last weekend to hang on to them and come along to the new date as a show of support and love of a good party, of course.
Tickets are officially back on sale, and you can grab yours now via THIS LINK and read a statement from the organisers below:
“We’ve received some overwhelming support over the past week and we want to thank everybody who reached out to us, and for those of you that have held on to your tickets while we navigate through this. It has been an incredibly challenging time for many of us in the events industry, and the three day lockdown was a devastating blow which resulted in both Palace Social Club & Voyage Day Party along with numerous other events unable to go ahead. As sad as it is, we acknowledge that the health and safety of our community comes first and we completely understand this was simply a situation out of our control.
“Before you ask for a refund we ask you to please really consider the effects of what the postponement has meant for us. From paying all of our suppliers, artist costs, and everyone involved in setting up the event, the loss has been devastating already. Every single ticket counts for us, so please #KEEPYOURTICKET and join us. If you would still like to request a refund please get in touch via email by Friday 7th May with your order details and if you could please be patient, we will do our best to sort out all requests in a timely manner.
“We truly appreciate every one of you and the understanding and compassion that most people have shown so far. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store on Saturday, May 22. We hope to see you there! ♥”
