In a bit of a bummer for fans, the highly anticipated Distortion Festival set for February 2024 has been officially postponed.

In a statement on Distortion’s website and Ticketek, organisers said: “We regret to advise that Distortion in February 2024 is being rescheduled.”

For those who've already snagged their tickets, there’s no need to stress – all tickets will stay valid for the rescheduled shows without the need for a swap, with organisers promising to get in touch with ticket holders as soon as they lock in the new show dates.

However, if the new dates clash with your plans, you have the option to get a refund from where you bought the tickets. If that's your situation, you can request a refund via Ticketek here. Keep in mind that it might take about 30 days for the refund to process, and it'll go back to the original credit card you used when making the purchase.

Distortion, brought to you by TEG Live, was gearing up to be a groundbreaking festival, blending the vibrant sounds of Dubstep, Trap, and Drum & Bass. The lineup was stacked with global sensations and local legends, featuring NGHTMRE, Zomboy, Moksi, Danny Byrd, Slumberjack, Godlands, and Sammythesinner.

NGHTMRE, the acclaimed LA producer, was all set for a triumphant return to Aussie stages – the first time since his solo tour in 2019. Joining him was English dubstep maestro Zomboy, making a comeback down under after wowing fans during his packed Touch Bass tour in 2019.

The festival also promised performances from international heavyweights like Moksi from Amsterdam's Barong Family, UK Drum & Bass guru Danny Byrd, and Aussie electronic duo Slumberjack. Backing up these global names were two local legends, the reigning dubstep queen, Godlands, and the mighty drum & bass sensation, Sammythesinner.

The festival was scheduled to take over iconic venues, including Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Friday, Feb. 9, Brisbane’s Eaton Hills Outdoors on Feb. 10, Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Feb. 16, and Perth’s Red Hill Auditorium on Feb. 17.

Despite the hiccup, bass enthusiasts are encouraged to stay tuned for the rescheduled dates and prepare for an unbeatable bass experience. Mark the dates, gather your crew and prepare for a brand-new live music experience in Australia featuring international and local heavy hitters. The beats might be delayed, but the wait is bound to be worth it.
