The new Playground Weekender 2012 plans

Following the last-minute cancellation of Playground Weekender 2012, the festival has announced a few satellite shows for Sydney with some of the line-up’s stars. First, though, there’s this important thing:

Ticketholders will be able to access all of the events taking place completely free of charge AND will be able to retain their ticket to claim a refund as per the terms and conditions of purchase. Refund options are currently being explored and the process of how to claim will be confirmed next week. Alternatively, people are invited to keep hold of their tickets which will be valid for Playground Weekender 2013.
