The call has been made.
The beloved Boogie Festival has announced it will be postponing its event until the Melbourne Cup weekend of October 30, 31 and November 1 this year. For what is set to be the last instalment at the current Our Friends Farm site, the festival will welcome the likes of Pond, Cash Savage & The Last Drinks, Endless Boogie, Twin Peaks and Even to the stage.
Other names on the lineup include Karate Boogaloo, The Jezabels’ Hayley Mary, Grace Cummings and her band as well as Angie McMahon, Steve Smyth, Howlin’ Rain and heaps more.
Taking to Facebook and Instagram to announce the news, Boogie said, “After some hard work and patience, we have managed to wrangle rescheduled dates for our beloved BOOGIE. As 98% of our ticket buyers live in the great state of Victoria, we figured Melbourne Cup weekend would be a suitable time period.
“The good people at Our Friends Farm let us in, and the local Council have also advised we are good to go, so on the weekend of October 30, 31 and November 1, BOOGIE 14 will happen!”
All purchased tickets will remain valid while refunds are available for a limited time.

Hello Boogie People, After some hard work and patience, we have managed to wrangle rescheduled dates for our beloved BOOGIE. As 98% of our ticket buyers live in the great state of Victoria, we figured Melbourne Cup weekend would be a suitable time period. The good people at Our Friends Farm let us in, and the local Council have also advised we are good to go, so on the weekend of October 30 and 31 and November 1, BOOGIE 14 will happen! We are working to have the exact same acts playing as already announced, and so far, this is looking positive. We will still deliver a few surprises for our last waltz in the dust, don’t you worry about that. We will announce the confirmed line up as soon as we can. We do have a slight issue in that we currently cannot play any music past 1am on any of the nights which messes with our regular Hillybilly planning. We have applied for an exception, and we’ll work some kind of Boogie voodoo and come up with something, but hey, we still get to Boogie in 2020 so things aren’t too bad. Tickets already purchased will remain valid for the rescheduled date. No need to do anything but count the days until Boogie. It’s 225 days by the way. We understand some of you may not be able to attend, or have other commitments, so we are allowing refunds on ticket purchases for a month from today. We were very close to sold out before the COVID-19 sent daily life into a spin, so think hard about your ticket decisions. Finally, the messages of support we have received since we posted on socials the other day have been amazing and inspiring. Boogie feels very special to us all, and obviously all of you too. Let’s see what the world holds for us for the next few months, and let’s all get through this to a shiny future. Deep, deep breaths, look out and after each other, and let's SHAKE IT LOOSE TOGETHER later this year. Love, BOOGIE
