Regarded by Sydney punters as the annual kick-off for the summer season, this year’s Harbourlife festival was set to migrate up north with an off-shoot festival announced for the Gold Coast on the last weekend of November.

Those plans have now been dashed according to event promoters Fuzzy, who spoke to ITM today about the festival’s disappearance from the events company’s calendar.

On the phone to ITM today, a Fuzzy representative confirmed that the Gold Coast debut of Harbourlife would not be going ahead this year, saying that it had been ‘postponed’ into 2011 due to a ‘complex number of deciding factors’.

The long and short of it is that any Queensland kids looking to buy tickets should stop searching, because it’s not happening. Meanwhile all those punters who had already purchased tickets to the festival have now been issued a full refund and will reportedly have first dibs when a 2011 date is confirmed.

The Sydney festival is unaffected by this postponement, so it’s all-aboard to November 20th with The Temper Trap, Metronomy, Knightlife and Yacht Club DJs.

Here's the not-so-complex deciding factor - Temper Trap!Wtf were Fuzzy thinking? Put on a big house DJ, sell the show instantly, make lots of cash.

deciding factors being people deciding not to buy ticketsawesome gig that has been absolutely ass-fucked by a decent lineup in recent years

haha, pretty straight forward as everyone has mentioned. Super average lineup = poor ticket sales = cancelling the event. Fuzzy - improve the lineup = sell lots of tickets = make lots of cash. Pretty straight forward.

To cut a long story short, I didn't buy tickets.

Tickets still on sale to Sydney after almost a week and a ballot. Fuzzy will have to learn, Harbourlife is suited to deep/soulful house in the arvo with a cheesy last set to close.
