Sydney’s long-standing all-local festival Homebake won’t be happening in 2010, a move that is sure to surprise its many eager followers. A statement from the organisers has just been published outlining the reasons for its postponement.

“As we’ve not been able to have the ‘planets align’ to a standard we feel appropriate to the long standing reputation of Australia’s largest ‘locals only’ event,” it reads, “we’d rather focus on a positive future and are instead planning for a unique return version of Homebake Festival to take place during the first week of December 2011.”

Last year was the 15th anniversary of Homebake, and the line-up boasted Midnight Juggernauts, Hilltop Hoods, Decoder Ring and The Aston Shuffle. It’s set to return ‘bigger and better’ in the first weekend of December 2011.

Interesting development. I personally don't have a problem with festivals taking a break. But somebody really needs to book Flight of the Conchords for a festival set already.
