After QAPITAL being cancelled just yesterday, now another big event had to take measures due to the spreading coronavirus. The Australian spectacle Midnight Mafia 2020, which was scheduled to take place on May 2nd, will be moved to another date. Read the full statement by HSU Events down below.

HSU Events: Firstly, HSU would like to thank everyone for being patient these last few days. We hope you have been practicing good hygiene and enjoying the music we all love.

We have been working around the clock with key Stakeholders, including the Government & NSW Health to work out the current situation for Midnight Mafia 2020. The safety and well-being of our patrons is paramount at all our events.

In response to the recent developments re: Covid-19, the Government has made the decision to ban all events with more than 500 people until June, and mandate 14 day self-isolation for all International arrivals into Australia. Therefore we are postponing Midnight Mafia 2020.

We will be working on the new date this week, and all current tickets to Midnight Mafia will still be valid for the new date.

However we understand that some people may want refunds now, so they are available for those who have digital tickets by clicking the link below and filling out the Ticketbooth form –

If you hold a physical ticket (purchased through a promoter) and would like a refund, these will be made available from this Friday. We are working with our promoters to organise the quickest & easiest way to facilitate this, so they will be able to update you as soon as we have a plan in place that works for everyone.

What can I do at festivals to prevent the spread of the coronavirus?

To stay safe and help other vulnerable groups stay safe as well, it’s best to stay home when experiencing (even minor) symptoms. If you can work from home, do so! Other measures you can take apply to all viruses that can cause flu and colds. It is always important to follow up these basic hygiene measures:

  • Wash your hands with soap regularly
  • Cough and sneeze on the inside of your elbows
  • Use paper handkerchiefs
