***POSTPONED*** Swing On The Grass

Due to current flooding conditions and predicated rainfall, South West Music have made the difficult decision to postpone this weekends event, Swing On The Grass. The event was due to take place on Saturday 22 October at the Deniliquin Golf Club. The area has heavy widespread rainfall forecasted for the remainder of the week, with risks of flooding and multiple road closures. The Dawn Ho Quintet were meant to be travelling via road from interstate, which poses severe difficulties at this time. The Deniliquin Golf Club is expecting the rising water levels to mean a road closure at the access point to the venue. We want our patrons and stakeholders to stay safe during this uncertain time.


All ticket purchasers will be refunded. Please contact concerts@swmusic.org.au to arrange this.


We hope our community stays safe during this period. We ask you to please bear with us while we work through the next steps to reschedule this event.
