It is with a heavy heart that the Team at Woop Woop Festival must make this announcement.

Due to several coinciding events (funding rejection from the Palaszczuk government and attendance markers not being met) our primary investor into our creative event has withdrawn their support. After three long weeks of emergency meetings we have been unsuccessful in finding an alternative investor for the 2019 event.

Without a primary investor to begin the building of Woop Woop Town in July, we cannot stage the festival on the scale that we envisage and that we are committed to.

We therefore have had to make the difficult decision to postpone Woop Woop Festival in 2019. We remain optimistic in securing funding support within the next 9 months to continue ahead with a 2020 event.

The team at WoopFest is pretty emotional and devastated after many months of hard work and passion for the project.
We’d like to offer our thanks to all those that supported us:
To everyone who purchased a ticket, we thank you!
To all of our talented and amazing musicians, we thank you!
To our most gracious property owners, we love you!
To all our stakeholders, we thank you!

We are however not giving up and we look forward to being able to stage WoopFest in 2020!

All ticket holders and other monies have been refunded in full.

Henry from Woop Woop


Henry from Woop Woop made an appearance in Brisbane.
He’s been spotted around the city trying to make his way back out west to Della. Henry seems a little distracted with the modern elements of the ‘big smoke’ and he may have become a little side tracked.
Will Henry ever make it back to Woop Woop? Be sure to like our Facebook page to stay up-to-date with Henry’s adventure.
The Woop Woop story starts now!
